Provideniya Bay Airport (Russian: Аэропорт «Бухта Провидения») (IATA: PVSICAO: 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,[1] 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.
