Flights from Arkhangelsk to Murmansk

Is it still possible to fly directly from Arkhangelsk to Murmansk? Nordavia still shows the route on its online schedule but it seems to be impossible to find or book available flights for any date (we're travelling in August).

I sent an email to Nordavia's customer service department but have not received a reply - and although I'm trying to learn Russian, I don't have the linguistic ability to call them to ask them directly!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I tried Nordavia web site and it says "no such flight" for any pair of cities and any date, so it must be just broken. On the other hand, tutu.ru does show Nordavia 5N 799 flight as available, try booking your flight with them or some other booking system.

I tried rasp.yandex.ru (Yandex.Timetables), probably the most comprehensive search engine for transport in Russia, and it shows that 5N 799 flyes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (including August), departing from Arkhangelsk at 10-50am.

The Arkhangelsk airport site is showing today's flight to Murmansk/Tromso as "departed" which strongly suggests it does exist, it is not just a figment of the imagination

Thanks very much for your replies.

I'd seen the schedule for 5N 799 which showed flights for August, but yesterday I couldn't get the Nordavia system to find any flights on which I could book a ticket, whether for August or for next week. I had tried last month and had been able to book tickets for flights three months ahead, but no further - so I thought that there was some kind of weird three-month restriction on bookings (that's when I sent Nordavia an enquiry about booking ahead). However, yesterday, I couldn't get the system to find flights for any dates - as Marassa said, it probably was not working properly.

Interestingly, I tried again this morning on the Nordavia site and I could do a dummy booking for flights up to the end of May - but not for any time beyond that.

I tried the tutu.ru site but it only showed indirect flights via Moscow for our date - we're hoping to do the direct flight if we can so that we don't have to backtrack (and it does seem to exist!).

I suppose that I'll just have to keep trying the website at random occasions and hope that it works - or change our itinerary.

Thanks again for your help!
