Also known as Knevichi Airport, Vladivostok Airport is one of the primary hubs for Eastern Russia. Located not far from the North Korean border on Asia’s east coast, the airport is 50km (31 miles) outside of Vladivostok.
A small regional airport serving just over a million passengers a year, flights to Vladivostok are hard to find outside of the Asian subcontinent. There is direct service from cities including Moscow, St Petersburg, Beijing, Seoul, Hong Kong, Hanoi and Tokyo.
The airport has big plans however, as the government has announced that it will be rebuilt ahead of the APEC Russia 2012 Summit on Russky Island, south of Vladivostok.
The terminals are within easy walking distance of each other.
Train: There are no train or subway services to the airport.
Taxi: It’s easy to find taxis outside the terminal building, but finding a good deal is harder. Generally a shared taxi will cost RUB 500-600 (about £10-£12) and a private taxi RUB 800-1200 (£16-£25). The longer you wait, the lower the price you will get, but generally public transport is a much cheaper and easier option. If you take a taxi, agree on a price before leaving, as non-Russian speakers tend to be grossly overcharged.
Bus: There are two regular buses departing from the airport terminal square throughout the day. Bus No. 107 and minibus No. 101 serve the airport, dropping passengers off in town. Fares are RUB 55 (about £1).
There is parking available directly outside the terminal.
There is an information desk in the main terminal.
Money and communications: bank, ATMs and currency exchange.
Luggage: There is a luggage-storage facility that charges rates from RUB 50 to RUB 250 (£1 to £5) depending on the size of the bag.
Conference and business: There are no business facilities at the airport.
Other facilities: Medical centre, luggage-storage facility, and a mother-and-child room with cribs and a play area, and handicapped facilities.
Wi-Fi: Wi-Fi is available for a fee. Prepaid cards can be bought in the luggage storage facility (quaintly referred to as a “cloak chamber”) in the Domestic Terminal.
