In two settlements, Chukotka was updated with runways

In the villages Chuvanskoe and Vaegi of the Chukotka Autonomous District will now be able to receive the Canadian assembly aircraft, which since last year have provided reliable air communication within the region. In 10-x numbers of November a special commission will go to populated areas to assess the readiness of the repaired runways to receive the DHC-6 Twin Otter Series 400 winged vehicles.

According to Igor Bondarenko, head of the transport and communications department of the department of industrial policy of construction and housing and communal services of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, the commission will include representatives of state and municipal authorities, the enterprises "Anadyr International Airport (Ugolny)" and "ChukotAVIA". They will have to determine the technical condition of the landing sites for the safe operation of flights by DHC-6 aircraft and other small aircraft.

The Chukotka government purchased two Canadian aircraft in 2012. In the last days of December last year, the first test flight took place on the route Anadyr - the village of Markovo, and at the beginning of this year, flights became regular.

The regional authorities plan to purchase two more Canadian-assembled aircraft, since these vessels have proven themselves well in the harsh climatic conditions of the district. In addition, measures for the construction and reconstruction of aerial complexes are included in the federal target program "Development of the transport system of Russia (2010 - 2020)", as well as in the state program "Economic and social development of the Far East and the Baikal region for the period up to 2018". It is expected that the region will receive 2,6 and 6,7 billion rubles for these purposes, respectively.
