Red Sea Global Company on Wednesday launched Saudi Arabia’s first seaplane company to transport guests to Red Sea island resorts.
Called Fly Red Sea, the company has an initial fleet of four Cessna Caravan 208 Seaplanes, which will fly on sustainable aviation fuel.
Each aircraft will carry a pilot and a maximum of six guests including luggage for guest transfers to water-based resorts, or up to nine guests for scenic tours based on destination.
The initiative was taken as a priority to explore technologies to reduce the aviation industry’s carbon footprint and provide Saudi people with skilled, rewarding career opportunities.
 Fly Red Sea will have its home base at Red Sea International Airport, Hanak, Tabuk region, which has a dedicated seaplane runway running parallel to the main terminal.
Fly Red Sea’s first seaplane flight on October 11 marked the arrival of the new airport’s first guests, a VIP delegation of Saudi ministers and other leaders aboard a specially equipped Saudi flight from Riyadh.
According to the plan, Fly Red Sea’s fleet will be expanded to nine seaplanes by 2028 and more than 20 seaplanes by 2030 in line with the destination’s development phases, authorities said.
