In Primorye, the second DHC-6 TwinOtter 400 for passenger transportation

The second DHC-6 TwinOtter 400, acquired by the Primorye Administration for inter-regional passenger traffic, arrived in the region. According to the press service of the regional administration, on the night of Sunday, October 26, he landed at the airport of Vladivostok.

Compared with the first DHC-6 TwinOtter 400, which entered the region in August, the possible range of the second aircraft was increased by 300 kilometers. As the first vice-governor of Primorye, Vasily Usoltsev, reported, competitive procedures are currently underway to determine the airline that will become the operator of the aircraft purchased. It is expected that both aircraft will come on the routes by the end of November.

At the first stage, flights to 2014 settlements are planned in 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: the flights will be made to Olga, Kraskino, Dalnerechensk, Lazo, Pogranichny, Arsenyev, Transfiguration, Spassk-Dalniy, Kamen Rybolov, Vostok and Nakhodka.

At the same time, ticket prices due to subsidies from the regional budget will remain affordable for people. Next year, by the decision of the Governor of Primorye, Vladimir Miklushevsky, the amount of subsidies is planned to be increased almost fivefold - from 80 to 345 million rubles.

In total this year, five aircraft will be acquired in Primorye: three aircraft for passenger traffic on the territory of the region and two air ambulance helicopters.
