STARTING September 23, Vladivostok Air will operate two flights per week on the Vladivostok-Hong Kong-Singapore route, using Airbus A320 aircraft configured with 12 business-class and 138 economy-class seats.
This marks the resumption of flights between Vladivostok in the Russian Far East and Singapore, a route that was previously operated by Aeroflot in the late-1990s.
Vladivostok Air does not have traffic rights between Hong Kong and Singapore.
Meanwhile, the Russian carrier has signalled its intention to expand into Asia-Pacific with flights to Bali, Ho Chi Minh City and Bangkok.
Besides aiming to facilitate growing corporate travel between South-east Asia and the Russian Far East, Vladivostok Air is also hoping to open up winter vacation options to those wishing to escape the harsh Russian winter.
