From the Houston Chronicle

"The airline, which tried to start flights to the region last fall, has since affiliated with the Rubloff Development Group. An affiliate of Rubloff, Ryan International Airlines, will be the airline operator for the weekly service from the United States to Sakhalin Island beginning Aug. 26.

The oil and gas resources of Sakhalin Island, a one-time penal colony off the east coast of Russia just north of Japan, make it a top destination. The charter service offered by Russia Jet Direct promises to drastically cut the time it takes to get to Russia, making it in 15 hours from Houston flying on a Boeing 757, with a short stop in Anchorage.

Other trips from Houston to Sakhalin can take three times that long, Russia Jet Direct says.

Russia Jet Direct is offering special rates of $5,500 round-trip between Houston and Sakhalin for its business elite class and $2,500 for its comfort-plus class. The company said it recently increased the number of more expensive seats upon request."

Initially, Miami Air was to be the contracted airline using a 737-800 and routing via Seattle and Anchorage. The company was setting up crewmember visa requirements last summer but I guess the deal fell through.


My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.

Does the -800 need both stops with premium seats?

Just curious, thanks.

From what I understood about that routing--they were not tech stops but stops for passengers. This new routing bypasses Seattle. Remember CO is flying IAH-ANC nonstop on a 738--not sure if thats exclusively a winglet bird though.
