Viking Air Limited of Victoria, British Columbia, is to introduce the world’s first dedicated seaplane in the 15 to 19-passenger category, the Viking Twin Otter 400S Seaplane. Viking has developed the new 400S variant of the Series 400 to optimize the Twin Otter platform for commercial seaplane operations.
The Viking 400S is specifically designed as an economical seaplane for commercial operation on short to medium flight segments, and will be offered at a list price under $6.0 Million (USD). Adapted for quick turn-around between cycles, the 400S can achieve a breakeven load factor of around 8 passengers under typical operating conditions.
Utility Air will be handling all Australasian enquiries.
