I had booked a business trip using our corporate travel group to Magadan Russia. It was a quirky trip using 2 different carriers. Without the long detail, i arrived in St Petersburg to find that my flights on Yakutia Air had not actually been purchased, meaning I had no ticket. But I absolutely had to arrive in Magadan the next...

One should not expect much from a charter flight from a popular destination if you choose the cheapest option. The flight was delayed but with several hours notice so we could enjoy the sea for a little bit longer. The plane was not new but the flight was absolutely normal and the staff was friendly

THE WORST!!! Bad food, no additional service such as blankets, excuses such as "We ran out of water", how come?! Your tickets are most expensive between 2 cities, i've paid 28000Rub, and getting silly excuses for simple things: "We don't have juice onboard. We will land in Yekaterinburg to get supplies." The plain was packed! Packed! And having such lame...

Flew 4 times in a month between Seoul and Yakutsk. Delay is almost certain — airline staff blame the customs on Russian side for spending too much time checking passenger passports. No frills service. Skip the flight meal unless you are direly hungry.

While returning from Yuzhno to Tokyo for a connecting flight, I flew Yakutia airlines. There are two direct flights between Tokyo and Yuzhno weekly which takes about two hours. Any other time of the week, there is no direct flight between Narita (Tokyon Airport) and Yuzhno. Where the direct flight is only two hours, other flights to Yuzhno require flying...

CHARTER. Everything in time. Good personal. Fine food onboard. Luggage included into ticket price — no need to pay some additional fees in the airport.

I purchased a one way ticket from Yakutsk to Vladivostok with Yakutia airlines early in advance, and I chose this airline mainly because of the aircraft being flown, i.e. the Sukhoi Superjet 100. Check in at Yakutsk airport was smooth and the counter was free when we got there, so we got everything issued quickly and our translator helped us...
