Reflecting on 2023: A Year of Achievements
The past year has been a testament to Siam Seaplane's commitment to excellence and innovation. One of the standout achievements was the acquisition of the Air Operator License (AOL), a milestone that speaks volumes about the team's dedication and hard work. Our CEO, Ms. Worakanya aptly says: “In 2023, we have obtained our AOL and are now moving fast to operate in 2024.” Our head of partnerships, Ms. Khemjira, rightly adds to this, “AOL achieved! Our first plane arrived! We could demonstrate what we will be doing to the regulators, industry, our partners and friends – we achieved to be widely acknowledged as a reputable presence in the industry."
This achievement is complemented by the significant growth of our team, attracting top talent and expanding our capabilities. Mr. Heart, Operations Associate, emphasizes this growth, stating, "Our collaborative efforts have attracted top talent and expanded our team significantly, strengthening our capabilities and expertise."
The signing of numerous resort partners and establishing partnerships with major tourism operators and resorts showcase our commitment to not just being a transportation service but a provider of unique and once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences. Mr. Amarit, Partnerships Associate, observes, “It's not just about the destination, but the journey of getting there as well. So we will be able to arrive at waterfront destinations in grace and style."

As we eagerly approach the new year, the Siam Seaplane team is poised for even greater achievements. Several team members share their aspirations for 2024, reflecting a collective drive for success and innovation.
Ms. Pitchapa, Marketing Associate, expresses her desire to enhance brand visibility through PR and event planning. “In 2024, we aspire to engage more in PR and event planning to increase brand visibility for our service," she says. This sentiment is echoed by Ms. Suthida, Head of Ground Operations, who emphasizes the importance of a strong operations team to deliver excellent seaplane services in Thailand.
The financial perspective is not overlooked, with our Financial Analyst Mr. Tanapat expressing that "in 2024, the exploration of more commercial and financial model perspectives will be interesting."
Mr. Michael, Deputy Manager of Operations and commercial pilot, eagerly anticipates engaging in commercial operations and witnessing seaplane operations take flight in Thailand, while CEO Ms. Worakanya emphasizes the company's commitment to sustainability: "Siam Seaplane is to continue its growth and focus on sustainability in 2024, contributing to the region's economic and environmental sustainability."

One common thread that runs through the reflections and aspirations of the Siam Seaplane team is the sense of unity and determination. Mr. Wasu, who works on Quality, Safety and Security, highlights the team's strength, stating, “Encountering obstacles and challenges with my colleagues has been a happy journey. Joining forces for the same goal of reaching AOC certification soon — we are a strong team."
In the face of challenges, the team's support has been unwavering.

Going forward we will work together to preserve the image and name of Siam Seaplane."
