A year ago, in July 2019, Oboronlogistics LLC, together with JSC Kosmos, began to operate flights on the route Arkhangelsk – archipelago Novaya Zemlya – Arkhangelsk on the Tu-134A aircraft.
The high-speed and comfortable Tu-134A aircraft can accommodate up to 60 passengers. In the comparison to the An 24/26 (previously used on the route) Tu-134A has increased the transport accessibility of the Novaya Zemlya archipelago for military personnel, their families and other civilian specialists engaged in the development of the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation.
In addition, this type of aircraft allowed to increase the volume of cargo transportation and improve the supply of food, consumer goods and basic necessities to the inhabitants of the island archipelago of Novaya Zemlya.
Arkhangelsk-Novaya Zemlya-Arkhangelsk flights have been operated by Oboronlogistics since October 2017. Currently, the company is working on expanding the route network and opening new destinations in the Northern regions of Russia.
