From the most recent Alaska Journal of Commerce:

http://www.alaskajournal.com/stories/031107/hom_20070311015.shtml

To summarize, Dalavia (no idea what the code is) will start ANC-Petroplavosk/Kamchatsky (PKC) on June 17th, using Tu-214 aircraft. Can't wait to see that baby parked at the North Terminal!

Hopefully this lasts; ANC-Russia should be an emerging market with the new oil exploration.

There code is H8

Nice to see some russian service added to Alaska. For how uch I'd love to see AS return to some of these routes, it sure won't happen anytime soon.

Does anyone know if there is actually a market for those routes? Would a lot of Americans need to go to PKC? Just curious as it seems like a strange route.

Leo.

Now this is very old information I am trying to remember, but looking back when Alaska served the Russian far east, the passenger loads were an eclectic mix of oil/energy workers, a few American university types on research jaunts, and some Russian families that had relations in Alaska.
I seem to remember Alaska served 3 Russian cities on a linear route from Anchorage.

With petroleum being what it is today, (High prices making exploration profitable in places just 10 years where it wasn't) serving that industry has become good business for those airlines identifying the market.

It will be exciting to see this aircraft on American soil!

There is, however it can be a tough route to fly. But with oil exploration increasing in the Russian far east, something like this was only a matter of time. Hopefully they can make it last.

Magadan, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Vladivostok, Khabarovsk

Also Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. In fact, if AS ever goes back to Russia from ANC, I would bet on a Yuzhno route.
