De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Ltd. has signed a letter of Intent to sell up to 10 Twin Otter Series 400 aircraft to India’s Big Charter Private Ltd.

The aircraft will be used by Big Charter’s airline Flybig.

Mandavia says the Twin Otter Series 400 is the right aircraft for them because of its record for safe, reliable operations and its versatility — including the capability to land on land or water.
