The completion of the maiden test flight of the aircraft has led to an increase in the demand for the aircraft by various international countries and China expects to deliver their AG600 amphibious aircraft to their customers by 2022. Furthermore, in 2017, the Indian carrier Spice Jet has also announced their plan of acquiring 100 amphibious aircraft from Quest Aircraft Company LLC, a subsidiary of Setouchi Holdings in Japan. The main motive behind procuring the 100 amphibious aircraft by the Indian region shall be to connect the remote areas of the Indian subcontinent. This shall lead to the Indian government conducting aviation operations in those areas, in order to place the remote locations of the Indian subcontinent on the main Indian aviation map. According to Spice Jet, the amphibious aircraft are being evaluated for operating in areas, such as Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, and regions in the North Š East, Andamans, Lakshadweep, and other coastal regions. The increasing demand for amphibious aircraft in the present scenario shall lead to the amphibious aircraft market witnessing a huge growth in the coming years.
