For those of you in the US who have been wanting to fly on a Russian-built aircraft, here's a new opportunity: Vladivostok Avia has started seasonal twice-weekly service from Anchorage to Vladivostok, via Petropavlosk-Kamchatsky. The first flight, which arrived in Anchorage on Monday morning, was flown by a Tupolev TU-154, although the airline has said that the route will be flown with newer Tupolev TU-204 airplanes. The flights will be carried out until September 15, and if this summer's flights are a success, the airline might continue them next summer.
