Αισιοδοξία για έναρξη δρομολογίων προς το τέλος του καλοκαιριού

Πτήσεις διάρκειας μικρότερης της μισής ώρας, από υδατοδρόμιο σε υδατοδρόμιο και με κόστος που θα κυμαίνεται μεταξύ του κόστους ενός εισιτηρίου high speed και ενός εισιτηρίου αεροπλάνου, υπόσχεται η Hellenic Seaplanes, που ήδη ολοκληρώνει το πρώτο δίκτυο υδατοδρομίων στη χώρα, μεταξύ Βόλου - Βορείων Σποράδων και Σκύρου, με στόχο να συνδέσει στη συνέχεια την περιοχή με όλη την Ελλάδα.

Ενδεικτικά αναφέρεται ότι η διάρκεια της απευθείας πτήσης με υδροπλάνο από το Βόλο στην Αλόννησο δεν θα ξεπερνά τα 19 λεπτά! Σχεδόν μισή ώρα είναι η διάρκεια μιας απευθείας πτήσης υδροπλάνου από Βόλο προς Εύβοια.

Ακόμη όμως και με ενδιάμεσες στάσεις από υδατοδρόμιο σε υδατοδρόμιο, οι αποστάσεις δείχνουν να μικραίνουν σε χρόνο. Για παράδειγμα από Βόλο μέχρι Σκύρο, θα απαιτείται χρόνος, μαζί με τις στάσεις, περίπου μιας ώρας. Οι πολύωρες μετακινήσεις γίνονται πλέον υπόθεση μερικών λεπτών της ώρας με υδροπλάνα που αναπτύσσουν ταχύτητες των 300χλμ. ανά ώρα και είναι απόλυτα ασφαλή, όπως επισημαίνει ο Πρόεδρος και Διευθύνων Σύμβουλος της Hellenic Seaplanes, Νίκος Χαραλάμπους.
