Versatile Seaplane Charters in the UAE
Back in the 1930’s, luxury seaplanes regularly landed on the Dubai Creek as they carried passengers from the UK to India. While these flying boats disappeared in the 1950’s, they’ve been revived by Jet Ops and our experienced team of specialist seaplane staff. These amphibious aircraft are more versatile that typical private jet charters, revelling in their ability to land on both water and runways. This creates a flexible array of landing locations and flight routes that traditional aircraft are unable to match. While our seaplanes can land at the international airports, they can also touch down on various strips of water around the Arabian Gulf.
We currently operate a fleet of Cessna 208 Caravans that have been custom-made to provide all passengers with uninterrupted aerial sightseeing over the Emirates. Nine spacious leather seats are complemented with personal viewing windows and the cabin is fully air-conditioned. The engine whirl of a seaplane is far quieter than with a Dubai helicopter charter and there’s always an exhilaration to taking off and landing on the water.
Premium Transfers with Seaplane Charter
Every seaplane charter provides a sublime air tour as standard. These amphibious aircraft are used for sightseeing flights by Seawings, an experience that the New York Times rated as the number one thing to do in Dubai. But there’s far more to the seaplane journey than aesthetics. A seaplane remains the most efficient and flexible air charter found in the UAE. Able to operate during all daylight hours, these charters provide point to point routes that remove or dramatically reduce land transfers.
For corporate and private individuals, a seaplane charter provides expedited travel between destinations all across the region. There are no traffic queues, road signals, or circular routes around the mountains. Seaplanes are fast and efficient while providing immediate access to a huge range of five-star resorts, sports venues, destinations, and conference venues across the Emirates. Rather than go through the main entrance you can land on a private beach and step straight from the plane into your destination.
Seaplane Charter for Multiple Uses
Our seaplanes are chartered by a rich variety of clients. They’re used by wealthy individuals on vacation to the UAE, particularly those looking for exclusive transfers to remote resorts in Zighy Bay or Sir Bani Yas. Corporate clients use the seaplanes as incentives to reward staff and premium experiences to impress new clients. Couples charter the Cessna 208 Caravan for a honeymoon celebration while conference organisers charter multiple seaplanes to move hundreds of guests in a tight time period.
These seaplane charters are fully customised for every client and every engagement. Charters includes customising routing (if required), pre-flight refreshments, plus the unique experience of taking off and landing on the water. With dozens of departure locations to choose from, an exclusive seaplane flight is a fusion of memorable air tour and convenient aerial transfer.
