Ahmedabad, Dec 01:
Spice Shuttle has suspended the Seaplane operations between Ahmedabad and Kevadia due to mandatory aircraft maintenance work for a few days. The 19-seater seaplane (Twin Otter 300 seaplane) has been sent to the Maldives and the operation will start once it is back. The airline said that they will resume the operations in about 15 days time.
In a tweet, it said, “Seaplane operations have been temporarily suspended due to mandatory aircraft maintenance. Since the maintenance facility (dry and wet dock) is still under construction at Ahmedabad; we have to send the aircraft to our lessor’s facility in Maldives. We will resume operations in about 15 days’ time, once the aircraft is back. Such prolong suspension will be avoided in the future as the maintenance facility (dry and wet docks) at Ahmedabad will be ready during this period.”
