The first premium seaplane service for Thailand.

Our existing strategic partners range from selected luxury beach resorts, marinas and other waterfront locations, leading local brands, to tour operators and travel agents.

We are happy to explore new partnerships with leading Thai beach resorts, marinas, waterfront locations and individuals or companies with a keen interest in aviation in Thailand. We also work with selected local, regional and global luxury travel agencies and would be happy to hear from you.

Ahead of our launch, we remain open to domestic and international investors that may offer both capital as well as expertise or passion for seaplane operations in Thailand. Several investment instruments may be considered.

Market Opportunity

A large, and growing market covering domestic and foreign tourists, expats, business travelers, families and friends. Relevant segments include the ‘premium mass market’ as well as luxury. Siam Seaplane will offer a premium, seamless service at an accessible price. Seaplane services in other markets charge between 300-700 USD per flying hour per passenger, which allows for healthy unit economics and margins.

In addition, our seaplane services also allow for cargo, logistics and delivery of crucial goods to previously hard-to-reach areas. They can facilitate non-life threatening medical evacuations and search and rescue (SAR) missions.

Timeline

We are aiming to commence commercial operations within 2020, pending the developments and impact of Covid-19. Implementing a phased approach (AOL/AOC) and initially limited route network allows for a realistic execution, while ensuring commercial viability from an early phase.

Our launch will be from Bangkok, reaching locations around Bangkok within a maximum of 1.5 hours flying time, such as Pattaya, Hua Hin, Koh Kood and others.

We can identify the best area right in front, or nearby, your waterfront location for a temporary water landing site or a water aerodrome.
