More flights to more destinations
The partnership of Yakutia Airlines and InterPacific Aviation and Marketing (AirRussia.US) will resume weekly Alaska-Kamchatka service in the summer 2013. The seasonal service will be expanded to fourteen weeks, extending from late June until late September. The longer season is welcomed by tour operators and outfitters.
In the summer of 2013 the Alaska-Kamchatka service will connect directly with Yakutia Airlines flights to/from Khabarovsk. The schedule will also allow for same-day connections at Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky via other airlines to/from Moscow, St. Petersburg and several Russian Far East destinations. Schedule details will be announced later this month, and tickets will go on sale by November of this year.
Yakutia Airlines is one of Russia’s leading regional air carriers, operating more than 30 modern aircraft to 100 destinations across Russia, Europe, Asia and North America. The airline is headquartered in the Eastern Siberian city of Yakutsk, known for its cold-weather maintenance facilities and recently completed airport (see photo above provided by the Yakutsk Airport). The airline also operates out of hubs in Krasnodar and Moscow’s Vnukovo airport. Yakutia Airlines utilizes Boeing 737 and 757 aircraft, and is in the process of acquiring Sukhoi Superjet and Bombardier Dash-8 aircraft.
