I dont think Mavial operate that flight anymore, can't find any info on their website or in amadeus.
Thomas: Thanks, that was news to me. Sounds like it might be a charter for an oil/gas company. There is a lot of oil- or gasfields on Sakhalin Island, and needless to say Houston is one of the great "oil cities" of the world.

re.: Any Flights Canada-Greenland
I believe I noticed flights between YFB (Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada) and GOH (Nuuk, Greenland) a couple of years ago on a code share basis Greenlandair/FirstAir. This may still be the case for the summer season. However, neither company displays this route on its routemap now and the only way I know is to fly via KEF, Iceland or CPH, Denmark

Greenland Air never flew to Ottawa. First Air flew for many years from YFB to GOH with the HS-748s. First Air also flew for a few years B-727s (100 & 200) on the YOW-YFB-SFJ route. The YOW-YFB-SFJ was a code share with GL. First Air also flew on behalf of Greenlandair the SFJ-CPH route.

I believe it was a 727-100 that operated for a short time.
No, Nuuk is not jet capable at least to that extent. The First Air 727 flew Ottawa-YFB and then on to Sondrestrom (and on up to Thule on USAF contract).
Not sure what is going on now.
In the past there have been Firstair 748 and Greenlandair Dash7s from YFB to Narsarsuaq and Nuuk.

A while back, Alaska Airlines had direct flights (nonstop?) from ANC to Magadan, Vladivostok, Khabarovsk, and Petropavlovsk. I think that the further south cities were direct via one of the other cities. I don't remember too many details, just seeing it in a flight magazine once.
