Polarny Airport welcomes you! Sergey made this wonderful airport for you! And the airport is not easy!

Polyarny is the airport of the city of Udachny in Yakutia. Located 9 km from the city.

It provides a number of regional flights, as well as domestic direct flights to Krasnoyarsk, Novosibirsk and Moscow. It is an alternate aerodrome on transcontinental routes from North America to Asia, carried out in accordance with the international standard ETOPS.

In emergency situations, the airport can take Airbus A300, Airbus A310, Airbus A330, Boeing 757, Boeing 767, Boeing 777. Also, the take-off runway in 1990 took the largest aircraft - An-225. The airdrome is equipped with a system of light-signal equipment OVI (high-intensity lights).

On September 7, 2010, the Alrosa Tu-154M aircraft operated a YM516 passenger flight along the Polyarnyy – Domodedovo route, but 3.5 hours after takeoff, there was a complete loss of power supply on board, which led to the shutdown of the on-board navigation systems. The crew made an emergency landing of the airliner (visually) at the former Izhma airport (Komi Republic) on a runway that had long been decommissioned and unsuitable for aircraft of this type, which did not have light-signaling equipment and radio transceivers. After landing during run, the aircraft rolled 164 meters outside the runway and drove into the forest. On board the aircraft were 81 people (9 crew members and 72 passengers), none of them were injured.
