Yakutia airline may expand the geography of flights to Asia
Yakutia airline expects to begin the implementation of new flights to the countries of Southeast Asia, the general director of the airline, Vladimir Gorbunov, told reporters.
"There is a need for new flights to Southeast Asia, I would like to expand it (the geography of flights - IF) a little. It depends on the reaction of travel companies which order travel destinations," the general director said.
He noted that in light of the cancelation of the ban on international flights, the carrier will resume international flights to Harbin (China), Seoul (South Korea), Tashkent (Uzbekistan), Tokyo (Japan). The first flights will be performed to Harbin and Seoul.
The airline’s charter program will include flights to China (from Yakutsk, Chita and Blagoveshchensk to Beidaihe, from Khabarovsk and Blagoveshchensk to Weihai) and South Korea (from Vladivostok and Khabarovsk to Yangyang, Cheongju and Jeju).
The head of Yakutia, Aisen Nikolaev, said that Rosaviation on March 25 had allowed the airline to restore international flights. The corresponding ban was introduced at the end of October 2018 after identifying a number of irregularities in the work of the carrier. The rejection of international flights decreased the income of the airline.
