SETOUCHI SEAPLANES is creating new value for the Setouchi Inland Sea with Kodiak 100 amphibious aircraft.
SETOUCHI SEAPLANES began operating the first seaplane service in Japan in fifty years in August 2016. The seaplane base is located at the Onomichi Floating Port in the city of Onomichi in Hiroshima Prefecture. The company operates sightseeing flights and charter services using Kodiak 100 amphibious aircraft produced by US-based Quest Aircraft.
We hope you will enjoy the delight of flying in an amphibious aircraft, something most people have never experienced.
As a company engaged in air transport services, we are strongly conscious of our mission and responsibility to ensure and maintain safety. Our executives and employees are united in dedicating themselves to carefully following our safety philosophy in order to ensure the safety of our customers.
SETOUCHI SEAPLANES pioneers the use of amphibious aircraft and continues to pursue the many possibilities of this aircraft in regional dynamics and tourism development as well as a new means of transport.
Thank you for your continued support.
