Vnukovo International Airport and Yakutia Airlines hosted an exhibition entitled «Northern Lights Across Russia. 20 Years of Yakutia Airlines», a joint project by the airport and airline.
The exhibition’s main concept is to highlight the beauty of Russia, to showcase unique sights and open new travel routes. This project also aims to support the development of domestic tourist destinations that can be reached from our airport.
