There are two airports. The international airport, "Tuimaada," gets regular direct flights from [[Moscow]], [[Saint Petersburg]], [[Novosibirsk]], [[Krasnoyarsk]], [[Irkutsk]], [[Khabarovsk]], and a few other major cities in Russia.
During the winter, Yakutsk often has fog, sometimes lasting for days or even weeks. The airport may be closed as a result, or flights can be delayed by several hours. Although Russian airlines do land in some amazingly poor visability, sometimes the conditions are so bad that even Russian pilots will not attempt it. It is not unusual for passengers to Yakutsk to find themselves staying in Magadan or some other alternate city instead, sometimes for days. The airline personnel generally will be most unhelpful in providing information about when you can continue on to Yakutsk, and they will not offer hotel accomodations or meals to passengers who have been stranded. It is advisable to carry at least some emergency money just in case you end up stranded somewhere.
