Provideniya Bay Airport (Russian: Аэропорт «Бухта Провидения») (IATA: PVS, ICAO: UHMD) (also Urelik and Ureliki) is a small airport in Chukotka, Russia located 3 km southwest of Provideniya. It services primarily small transport aircraft. A concrete apron contains four parking spaces. It is not adequate for military operations but there are anecdotal reports that it has received Tupolev Tu-95MR deployment flights as part of military exercises. Moreover, on 25 July 2005 a Swedish Airforce C-130 Hercules landed in Provideniya, bringing in an international research team from the Beringia 2005 expedition , organized by the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat. This airport was famous for the 1988 flight of Alaska Airlines known as the Friendship Flight at that time. Alaska also used to serve the town until 1998.
