"The service will now enable the large number of pilgrims travelling to the holy sites of Meherabad, Shirdi and ShaniShinglapur to travel quickly and conveniently to their destinations in about 45 minutes plus a short road trip as opposed to 6 hour journey by road," said Siddharth Verma, co-founder and director, Mehair.

Besides Pawana and Mula dam, Mehair is also planning to launch services to Gangapur Dam in Nashik and Dhoom Dam in Mahabaleshwar in the coming weeks.

"The amphibian planes will eventually connect Mumbai with multiple tourist destinations in the state, adjacent to suitable water bodies even though there may not be any runways at these destinations," the company said in a statement.
