The company will use Cessna Caravans which fit up to eight people.

“Due to the eight-passenger capacity of the seaplanes, and small, efficient facilities, guests can arrive for check-in as little as ten minutes before departure,” the airlines said in a press release.

One way fares start at $395. Tailwind Air will begin with two flights a day and then increase to four flights a day.
