Alaska-Russia link resuming

Yakutia Air

Yakutia Air is to re-establish an air link between Alaska and eastern Russia.

The route, from Anchorage Ted Stevens International to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, will operate once weekly (on a Thursday morning) from 12 July.

The airline will operate a Boeing 737-700 on the route, but has the option to upgrade to a Boeing 757-200 if demand is sufficient.

Links between Alaska and eastern Russia’s Kamchatka peninsula are long standing, and a number of airlines have flown the route in the past, including Alaska Airlines.

Alaska Airlines didn’t fly to Kamchatka. Their destination was Magaden, further south, closer to Vladivostok and the Chinese border.
