Even if you wanted to keep your Kamchatka dates on the books, and you shouldn’t, getting there now would be a bitch.
InterPacific Aviation and Marketing, Inc. (IPAM) announces with regret that it will cease operations as of March 31, 2022, and is terminating its contractual agreement with Russian air carrier Yakutia Airlines. Clients holding vouchers issued for travel on the Alaska-Russian Far East route who have not yet initiated the refund process through their travel agent or with IPAM directly should submit their refund requests to us immediately. See below.
Since its founding in 2009, IPAM has been dedicated to building ties between the US West Coast, the Russian Far East, and Japan. We are proud of our role in connecting families, supporting business and science, and promoting tourism. Since inaugurating the Alaska-Russian Far East Service we have carried approximately 8500 passengers between the cities of Anchorage, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Yakutsk, and thousands more on other charter programs. We are grateful to the many people and organizations that supported the service; vendors, outfitters, operators, the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, and most importantly the many passengers who entrusted us with their travel.
Regretfully, the ongoing conflict now unfolding in Ukraine makes it impossible to continue operations and carry out our mission.
