Review of Yakutia Air


Reviewed 30 August 2017

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 talk to the check-in lady.

Boarding went through smoothly and we took a bus to the aircraft. I received an unexpected surprise when groups of the Russian army (navy, air force, land army etc) started joining us onto the bus. We were assigned seats toward the front of the aircraft while the army took the seats behind us, filling up nearly 80 seats on the plane. I counted 14 normal passengers including us on the plane, and the rest were the Russian army.

In terms of the aircraft, I found the Sukhoi Superjet to be really interesting compared to the usual Airbus, Bombardier and Boeing planes I normally fly on. Some notable difference include the interior itself, the windows and the sound of the engines. Needless to say it felt much like an older A319 than a newly built 2007 plane. The seats were comfortable with enough cushioning and the legroom was good too. No IFE, but the magazine was in itself entertaining enough. Cabin crew were friendly and provided great service.

One part of the journey that I didn't particularly enjoy was the food. Everyone was served a beef tongue and a single gherkin as the main course, which in all my travels was the first main course I had ever skipped. The other food included a small salad and some bread, which was dry and did not taste particularly good.

After all, it was an enjoyable flight on the Sukhoi Superjet and I found it to be a very interesting experience. I would recommend this airline for short haul flights.
