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.

Getting into Town

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).
