In Yakutia, they fear that the timing of the reconstruction of the Yakutsk airport may be disrupted, which could lead to the suspension of flights in winter. The head of the republic, Aisen Nikolaev, instructed to work out all the risks that could lead to a delay in deadlines.

According to the press service of the government of Yakutia, the reconstruction of the airport complexes in Yakutsk and Neryungri continues - these are two airports from where flights outside the region are made.

According to Aisen Nikolaev, the work in Neryungri does not raise doubts that everything will be ready on time. The reconstruction of both airports should be completed simultaneously in October 2022. On April 30, it is planned to obtain the conclusion of the design and estimate documentation at Glavgosexpertiza. By August 1, it is necessary to complete the work on the runway and by September 1 to start installing the ramp, and after certification, ensure flights in the winter.

From May 16 to October 1, 2021, flights at Yakutsk airport will be carried out on a 1,6 km section of the runway. Under such conditions, only class 3-4 aircraft and modified Boeing-737-700 will be able to fly. Direct flights to Moscow will be operated by Yakutia airlines with a technical landing in Barnaul and Alrosa in Mirny.

The availability of the airport in Neryungri is 30%. Work on the runway will begin on July 1. At this time, passengers will be able to fly through Yakutsk or Blagoveshchensk. From November 1, the airport will resume accepting aircraft from 1 to 3 classes without restrictions.
