Vladivostok Avia gets ready to depart Moscow Vnukovo to St Petersburg - across all three Moscow airports there are now nine airlines operating to St Petersburg.
- Vladivostok Avia expands its presence at Moscow Vnukovo (VKO) with St Petersburg (LED) becoming the sixth destination served by the airline with a direct link from the capital. The new service, which was launched on 2 August, will be operated with an Airbus A320 four times per week and provides for a range of connecting opportunities for passengers originating in the east of the country. However, Vladivostok Avia will be facing significant direct competition with UTair and SkyExpress offering 14 weekly frequencies each with additional twice-weekly services by Gazpromavia. Across all three Moscow airports (Domodedovo, Shermetyevo and Vnukovo), there are now nine airlines operating to St Petersburg; Aeroflot (with 78 weekly departures), Gazpromavia (two), Rossiya (70), S7 (39), SkyExpress (14), Transaero (15), Ural Airlines (three), UTair (14) and Vladivostok Avia (four). Other destinations served by Vladivostok Air out of Moscow Vnukovo are Abakan, Kemerovo, Khabarovsk, Komsomolsk-on-Amur and the city from which the airline takes its name, Vladivostok.
