"crew were nice and polite"

(Russian Federation)

Verified Review | The trip from Yakutsk to Vnukovo was pretty regular, with nothing interesting about it. I would have personally chosen Aeroflot, but Yakutia Airlines was a bit cheaper and the airport of arrival was closer to my destination. Aircraft itself lacks AC outlets for charging electronics (outlets are present on aeroflot ones, flying YKS-SVO), but the crew were nice and polite, safety instruction was made via overhead screens, which, for some reason, were unavailable during the whole duration of the trip (7hr). Basically, there were no any in-flight entertainment. Concerning food and beverages - these were pretty much the usual ones, with 2 courses of meal - one at about 1-2 h in-flight, consisting of the usual beef/chicken/fish with some garnishes, bread, jelly and butter and the last one at 2h before landing, consisting of fruits, a bun and some cookies. In conclusion, I'd recommend this airline if one is on a budget.

Yakutia Airlines customer review

(Russian Federation)

Moscow to Ulan-Ude in economy on a Boeing 737. The plane interior was clean and in good shape the dinner was edible staff polite and reasonably efficient. Seat pitch is tight for the tallish (me 185 cms). But the whole experience was better than I'd expected from an off-brand carrier.

Yakutia Airlines customer review

(Australia)

I took the weekly Yakutia flight from Magadan to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy. At $446 it was an expensive flight but saved a lot of money and time compared to the alternatives. The experience is probably best described as nostalgic. The safety cards proclaimed that our aircraft is fitted out with modern and reliable equipment but aside from new seat covers it appeared that their definition of modern extends back to 1974. Safety cards appeared to have been written for a different aircraft - lifejackets were not under the seats (they were stuffed into the seat pockets). Seat pitch was good at 31 inches cabin comfort was not great - no ventilation and the seats were very worn and uncomfortable but the flight was not full so there was room to spread out. The sole FA was efficient and helpful and a snack box was served no meal trays though the slice-you-in-two metal meal trays were absent here. The flight was generally smooth and departed and arrived on time. One final surprise was that on arrival passengers collected their own bags from the aircraft hold (handing over their "Aeroflot Soviet Airlines" claim check) before boarding the bus to a gate in the fence next to the terminal building.
