Kuriles and Sakhalin will link the ferry from the line Vanino - Kholmsk

Because of the repair of the motor ship “Igor Farhutdinov”, the Sakhalin-8 freight and passenger ferry will temporarily operate on the Korsakov-Kuril Islands line. Transportation will begin from November 12. Also, for the period of ship repair, passengers from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk to Yuzhno-Kurilsk and Kurilsk will be delivered on larger capacity planes.

The ship, which was sent for repair before December 17, must be replaced to ensure transport between Korsakov Iturup, Kunashir and Shikotan. The Sakhalin-8 ferry, which will replace the steamboat, is one of three ferries that are currently operating at the Vanino-Kholmsk ferry linking the island to the mainland. As noted by the Ministry of Transport and Road Management, the vessel will work in two directions at once, in order to prevent the accumulation of cargo. This practice has been successfully applied for several years in a row and does not become a hindrance to the transportation of passengers and cargo carriers.

According to the press service of the government of the Sakhalin region, the planes will be sent to the islands due to the fact that for technical reasons ship calls to the Malokurilskoye sea terminal on Shikotan Island will not be executed. On the route Kunashir - Shikotan, the number of flights of self-propelled scooters will be increased up to four times a week. Also three times a week, passengers will be delivered by helicopter. In the future, if necessary, the authorities of the region will consider the issue of increasing the number of aircraft flights.

The timetable of the attracted vessel can be found on the official website of the Ministry of Transport and Roads of the Sakhalin Region in the section “Information for citizens / Timetables”. Sale of tickets for the convenience of passengers will be carried out, as before, on the site, as well as directly on board the ship. The ferry will depart for the islands of Kunashir and Iturup from the seaport of Korsakov.
