Russian carrier Alrosa, one of the last operators of Tupolev Tu-134s, is set to halt services with the type next month.
Alrosa has a single Tu-134 registered RA-65693.
The airline indicates that it is preparing for the “upcoming shutdown” of the type, and will conduct “final flights” on 18 and 20 May.
Alrosa will operate the Tu-134 on the Mirny-Irkutsk route.
Cirium’s Fleets Analyzer lists its aircraft as a 1980 airframe originally delivered to Aeroflot. It was subsequently used by operators including Latvia’s Latavio and Russian charter carrier Aviaenergo.
Alrosa is one of a handful of operators still using Tu-134s, and passenger access to scheduled services with the type is becoming increasingly limited.
North Korean flag-carrier Air Koryo and Syrian Arab Airlines are still formally listed by Cirium as having Tu-134s, while Russia’s space agency-linked Kosmos Air also uses them.
