Russia Jet Direct was a short-lived regularly scheduled airline offering passenger transportation, including Hot Shot Cargo and Rapid Document Service, between the United States and the Russian Far East. The airline was American-operated. It was based in Seattle, Washington.[1]

The fleet consisted of Boeing 757-200ER aircraft from Ryan International Airlines. Russia Jet Direct flew the only direct route from Houston and Anchorage to Sakhalin Island-Yuzhno.[2]

Russia Jet Direct operated between August and September 2005. The former principals hoped to relaunch the airline as Saber Air.[2]

On January 7, 2007, the flight information display at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport displayed a Russia Jet Direct flight arriving from Oakland, California.
