CARGO SERVICE LAUNCHED ON
ALASKA-KAMCHATKA ROUTE

 

Yakutia Airlines Transports New Windshield for 

Stranded Cessna 

 

Air Cargo Service
Yakutia Airlines inaugurated cargo service last week on its Alaska-Kamchatka route by delivering a critical item - a replacement windshield for a Cessna Citation Mustang. The light jet was on an around-the-world trip when it incurred damage to its windshield and was left grounded at the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky airport. Logistics company BDP International routed the crated windshield from Cessna's Wichita, Kansas plant to Yakutia Air's ground and cargo handler in Anchorage, Pegasus Aviation Services, which successfully loaded it on last week's flight.

 

Yakutia Airlines is accepting cargo for Thursday departures from Anchorage  through September 13. Contact AirRussia.US to reserve space for your cargo. At this time, the cargo service only operates westbound, from Anchorage to Kamchatka.

TRAVEL  AGENT CORNER  

Yakutia Airlines Joins ARC

 

ARC Yakutia Airlines is proud to announce that it has joined Airlines Reporting Corporation (ARC) effective July 30, 2012. Travel agencies in North America are now able to book and settle travel on flights throughout the airline's vast route system, which extends from Anchorage, Alaska, throughout Russia to Central Asia, the Black Sea and Europe. Yakutia Airlines carries more than 80,000 passengers per month and is the official airline the 2012 Children of Asia Sports Games.

 

Yakutia Airlines has elected the General Concurrence method of agent appointment whereby all ARC agents are automatically appointed as agents of Yakutia Airlines. Initially Yakutia Airlines will only accept cash; however, it is working to establish Visa and Mastercard as additional forms of payment. Amadeus is currently the only GDS supported by Yakutia Airlines, but other systems are expected to come on-line by 2013.  

 

Agents are encouraged to contact Yakutia's representative in the United States, InterPacific Aviation and Marketing, Inc., with any questions they may have about ticketing and service. 

 

RESERVATION MATTERS

Agents are reminded to always include accurate and complete passenger passport information in customer reservations. The DOCS entry must include the passenger's full name as written in passport (last, first and, if applicable, middle name); passport country of issue, number and expiration date; passenger's country of residency, date of birth and gender.


If passenger is not a US citizen or legal resident, US address details must also be included in the reservation with the DOCA entry.
 

 

Inclusion of the above information is required by US Government regulations.

TRAVEL TIPS TO RUSSIA

 

Visa: To enter Russia for any purpose other than short transit by air, or some cruise ship and ferry passengers, you must possess a valid U.S. passport and a visa issued by a Russian embassy or consulate. You cannot obtain a visa upon arrival, so you must apply for your visa well in advance. Read more...

 

Travel Tips Migration cards: U.S. citizens entering Russia must carry a migration card while in Russia. These cards have been provided to foreign passengers before landing in Russia, to be filled out by the traveler. Read more...  

 

Visa registration: If you intend to spend more than seven days in Russia, you must register your visa and migration card through your sponsor. If staying at a hotel, the hotel reception should register your visa and migration card on the first day of your stay. Read more...

 

If you are a dual U.S./Russian national, you are expected to enter and depart both Russia and the United States carrying the passport of that country. If you are a Russian citizen carrying a Russian passport, you should confirm that your Russian passport is valid beyond your planned departure; you will not be permitted to depart Russia with an expired Russian passport, and obtaining one in Russia, as a non-resident, is extremely difficult. Read more...

 

Minors: If a child (under the age of 18) is traveling with only one parent or someone who is not a parent or legal guardian, please be advised to check what paperwork you need to have before traveling. Read more...

 

U.S. Citizen Services: If you have an emergency while traveling in Russia, contact your nearest U.S. Consulate. Check here for office locations and hours.

TRAVELING TO VLADIVOSTOK 
Vladivostok
The facade of Vladivostok's Train Station 
is one of the most recognizable landmarks of the city.

 

Vladivostok is Russia's largest Pacific port, home to the Russian Pacific fleet, and the administrative center for Primorsky Region. It is the terminus of the Trans-Siberian railroad and is geographically close to Japan, Korea and China, making it an important trade and transportation hub. Major industries include commercial fishing, shipping, forestry, and the Russian Navy. In September 2012, Vladivostok will host the 24th Summit of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperations (APEC) forum. The event will draw delegates from 21 Pacific Rim member nations. The Central Sikhote Alin range, located in Primorsky Region, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This unique ecosystem simultaneously hosts subtropical species, such as the Amur tiger and Himalayan bear and such northern taiga species as the reindeer and brown bear. 


Transit fares now available.
