Alaska-Russia link resuming
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.
