Japan Airlines also operates direct flights from Vladivostok to Tokyo, and there are also direct flights by Korean Air and Asiana Airlines from Vladivostok to Seoul.

The Vladivostok International airport is located some 35 km from the Vladivostok downtown. The easiest way to get to the downtown is to take an Aeroexpress train (click here to check the timetable).
