"Yakutia" will connect Niigata with Khabarovsk and Vladivostok
In July, Yakutia Airlines will begin operating regular flights between the Japanese Niigata and the Far Eastern Vladivostok and Khabarovsk.
Flights on medium-haul aircraft Sukhoi Superjet 100, which has 90 seats, including eight business class, will be carried out once a week, taking turns in each of the Far Eastern cities. The first flight from Khabarovsk will take place on July 15, the departure time is 14.40, and will land in Niigata in two hours and ten minutes. For the first time from Vladivostok, the plane will go to the Japanese city of 19 in July at 12.20, and its passengers will spend one hour and twenty minutes in the air. Airfare will be determined by the airline’s marketing service at a later date.
Niigata became the first foreign city with which regular air traffic was established. Since April 1993, it was carried out by Vladivostok Air, which stopped flights in the winter of 2010-2011 due to the decrease in passenger traffic. Niigata authorities negotiated with the airline to resume regular flights, offering to allocate subsidies of 100 million yen, that is, about $ 1,19 million at that time, but they could not reach an agreement. The last two years, on the initiative of the Japanese side, the airline "Yakutia" carried out charter flights between Niigata on the one hand and Khabarovsk with Vladivostok on the other. The average occupancy of the seats was 72%, which is considered a good level. However, of the number of charter services, almost two thirds, more precisely 70%, were Japanese. In general, these are official delegations, students and tourists. Only a third of the passenger flow was provided by the Far East.
