Hong Kong Seaplanes is a startup seaplane airline based in Hong Kong, with plans to operate private and scheduled seaplane flights out of Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong.
Once launched, the airline will begin by providing aerial sightseeing tours and ad-hoc air taxi flights. This is the first phase of the airline’s launch plan. The second phase will see Hong Kong Seaplanes offering regular scheduled air shuttle services between Hong Kong and destinations in the Greater Bay Area. This phase is expected to begin from June 2021. The airline’s air shuttle flights will be bookable via a special app (expected to work a bit like Uber), with millions of pounds already invested into this project by the airline’s investors. In the long term, over the next few years, the airline also hopes to begin operating international flights to nearby countries in Asia.
