New airplane DHC-6 made the first test flight in Primorye

One of the DHC-6 TwinOtter 400 aircraft that appeared in Primorye successfully completed a test flight today. The regional enterprise "Plastun Avia" acquired two such aircraft for the development of internal routes to the northern and remote regions. Both aircraft are manufactured in Canada.

According to experts from the Department of Industry and Transport of the Primorsky Territory, the new aircraft made a training flight on the Vladivostok - Plastun route and back, while without passengers. The goal was to train the crew. The flight was led by the pilot-instructor of the State Research Institute of Civil Aviation Nikolai Grigoriev. The one-way route took about an hour and a half. At the same time, a bus trip from Vladivostok to Plastun takes 15 hours.

Now in the Primorsky Territory, official procedures are continuing to determine the company-operator of the two acquired aircraft. As soon as the competition is completed, the aircraft will begin to transport passengers.

At the first stage, flights to 2014 settlements are planned for 11: Kavalerovo, Plastun, Terney, Dalnegorsk, Amgu, Maksimovka, Ust-Sobolevka, Svetlaya, Samarga, Agzu, Edinke. At the second stage in 2015, it is planned to double the number of settlements: flights will be operated to Olga, Kraskino, Dalnerechensk, Lazo, Pogranichny, Arsenyev, Transfiguration, Spassk-Dalniy, Kamen-Rybolov, Vostok and Nakhodka.

The regional authorities intend to subsidize the transportation of passengers so that the price of tickets remains affordable for residents of the region. An air ticket from Vladivostok to Kavalerovo costs 1 rubles today, to Plastun - 200 rubles. The ticket price from Terney to Svetloye is 990 rubles. For short periods, prices are even lower: for example, Primorye residents can fly from Maksimovka to Ust-Sobolevka for 803 rubles.
