 September 12 as part of his working visit to Russia, Vice-Governor of Niigata Prefecture Hanazumi Hideo will visit Yakutsk. The delegation consists of the vice-mayor of the city of Niigata, managers and specialists of the airport department and the department of tourism development of Niigata Prefecture, as well as heads of tourism companies. The delegation is planning to meet with the Government of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and the leadership of the "Yakutia" Airline to discuss the expansion of tourism from Yakutia to Niigata and the creation of a tourist product assigning Yakutsk as a goal in the trip. One of the key issues will be the opening of a charter flight between Yakutsk and Niigata.

The "Yakutia" Airline and the Representation of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) in Khabarovsk have long history of cooperation with Niigata Prefecture and perform charter flights Khabarovsk-Niigata-Khabarovsk, Vladivostok-Niigata-Vladivostok. Niigata puts high hopes that the flight from Yakutsk will give rise to the development of tourism in both regions and will enable to launch a number of projects between Yakutia and Japan in the field of economic relations, culture and education.
