Trying to expand its record tourism base, Greece will allow a hydroplane landing strip for the first time, this one off the coast of the famed Ionian island Corfu.

Merchant Marine Minister Miltiades Varvitsiotis and Deputy Infrastructure and Transport Minister Michalis Papadopoulos signed the decision paving the way for the landing area. Greece had not allowed hydroplanes to land off its islands.

The strip, which is to be operated by the island’s port authority, will be able to serve Greece’s first fleet of hydroplanes and improve connections between the island and mainland Greece.

The aim of the initiative is to boost tourism on the Ionian islands. Authorities hope to follow up with several more hydroplane strips on other islands in the Ionian and beyond. It wasn’t explained why it took so long to do so.
