Back when the USSR still existed, were there flights between the US and the USSR? I have a book about airlines that said that Alaska Airlines once flew into Siberia in the USSR during the 70's or 80's. I trust the book, but there are a few mistakes. Did Alaska Airlines fly to the USSR? What aircraft did they use? Did any other airlines fly direct flights between the USSR and the US? What aircraft did they use? Thanks!

I believe that Pan Am flew JFK-Moscow (dont know which airport) starting about 1968 with 707-321B. I don't know if they served nonstop with the 747, but PA might have continued thru the 1970's with the 707. I do not think that any other US carriers flew to USSR until AS flew ANC-Siberia. Ralph

I don't know about flights to the USA, but Aeroflot used to fly to Montreal and Havana in the 60's using TU-104's. I have a picture of one taken at YUL from the window of a departing DC-7. If I find it I will scan it and post it on the web.

As far as I know there were only two airlines that operated between USA and USSR, Pan Am and Aeroflot. Pan Am used Boeing 707s initially and soon switched to Boeing 747s. Aeroflot used initially Tu-114s, Il-62 followed and just before the end of USSR Il-86 were also used. The airport in Moscow was SVO until 1980 Sheremetevo 1 was used, an eliliptical terminal was build both in Moscow and New York JFK.
