Nine airfields will be operational in the Sakhalin Region by the end of the year. Three more will be added to the six active ones. This will significantly increase the transport accessibility of the region.

According to the press service of the Sakhalin government, an airstrip will be built in Severo-Kurilsk. Also, sites will be restored in the village of Zonalnoe, Tymovsky district and in Aleksandrovsk-Sakhalinsky.

According to the governor of the region Valery Limarenko, due to the remoteness of the settlements of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands, logistics is difficult. And aviation is one of the most important elements of transport accessibility in the region.

The nearest plans include the repair and construction of landing sites on Shikotan, Poronaysk and Smirnykh, after which airfields will appear in settlements on the western coast of Sakhalin.

Passenger traffic will be carried out by small planes with a capacity of up to 19 people. This year, two new aircraft will start transporting.

Earlier it was reported that a single transport scheme is being created in the Sakhalin region, which will unite all types of transport. For this, they plan restore the network of Soviet airfields.
