AirRussia.US is a travel portal created to facilitate and promote travel between North America and Eastern Russia. InterPacific Aviation and Marketing, Inc. (IPAM) based in Seattle, Washington is a sole owner of AirRussia.US and is the designated representative for Yakutia Airlines in the US. We are further dedicated to expanding the range of travel options for leisure and business travelers who need to get to Eastern Russia from North America through our growing alliance of airlines and travel agents.
Eastern Russia is home to many world class adventure travel destinations, including the UNESCO Heritage Sites of Kamchatka, Lake Baikal, and the Sikhote-Alin range, habitat of the endangered Amur tiger. Siberia’s vast Yakutia region hosts breathtaking landscapes, dogsled racing, and the coldest place in the Northern Hemisphere – the Pole of Cold. Extremes of weather and distance, the Cold War, and lack of transportation infrastructure long prevented travelers from easily getting to these destinations.
In the summer of 2012, our airline partner Yakutia Airlines, started operating direct flights between Anchorage, Alaska, and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Russia. Connections are available from Kamchatka throughout Russia’s Far East.
The Kamchatka Peninsula, just across the Bering Sea from Alaska, is one of the world’s most pristine and awe-inspiring wild places. The area percolates with geothermal activity. It is home to world’s second largest geyser field, numerous active volcanoes and countless hot-springs, and hosts the enormous Uzon Caldera. Kamchatka offers unparalleled fly-fishing, wildlife viewing and volcano heli-skiing opportunities. Nevertheless, few Westerners have ever been there.
We are now working to raise awareness about the region among adventure travelers and outfitters. We hope to forge partnerships between adventure travel and ecotourism companies and the local ground operators who know the territory. We welcome inquiries from serious trip organizers who would like to make contacts with operators and visit the region. Please contact us to learn more.
If you need help navigating the challenges of travel to Russia, please drop us a note – we’d be happy to help.
Our office is located at the World Trade Center East, overlooking Seattle’s Elliott Bay and just a few minutes walk from the Pike Place Market.
