Flight From Alaska To Russia?

Mon Oct 01, 2001 6:52 am

If you take a look at a map you will see that at some spots there are only around 100 miles of Ocean separating Alaska from Russia. Are there any small "commuter" airlines that opperate from Alaska to Russia? Also does Aeroflot still fly to Anchroage? (to/ from and aircraft)

Thanks
Tyson

Alaska Airlines used to have some flights like that in the early 90s, but they are no more now.

Reeve did some to VVO with a 727 before they went under. Alaska did them with M80s, but do to profitablitiy, and the fact that most of the airports out there were quite bad (pot holes in the runways) they dropped the routes...

I think that there are a couple of outfits up in Nome that will do charter work to Anyadr but generally the flight permissions that you have to get from the russian authorites are just a pain.

OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

Magadan Air flies once a week from Magadan to Anchorage (on sundays). The flight makes one stop in Petropavlovsk Kamchatsky and they use a TU-154/
