Charter Flights to Osaka Take Off from Kamchatka in July
Charter air connection between Japan and Kamchatka is set to be resumed this July. A relevant agreement has been reached by Japan Air Travel Marketing company and Russian inbound tour operator KamchatIntour.
In recent years, only flights to Tokyo were offered from the region. This year, however, there are going to be two services to Osaka. The routes will be operated by Yakutia Airline's brand new Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ-100) aircraft with up to 100 seats. Up to 700 Japanese tourists and up to 120 Russians are expected to arrive on the new twice weekly flights over the scheduled period from July 8 to August 16.
