This month’s featured member helps travelers experience Dubai from the sea and sky. Seawings, Avinode member since 2014, has a unique fleet of Cessna C208 Amphibian seaplanes.

Seawings offers the only seaplane experience in Dubai, allowing customers to glide to their destination by sea.

Business and leisure travelers have the chance to take in the visually striking city with a customized and flexible experience with Seawings. Ad-hoc trips are easier by virtue of avoiding crowded airports, says Mishant Gwalani, Manager of Corporate Sales. Catering to ASAP trips is another important advantage of seaplanes, and with tourism and business are on the rise, and Seawings is delighted to provide just that; with a portfolio of 24 landing locations in the UAE and Muscat.
