ANA expands service with Vladivostok route

All Nippon Airways (ANA) will become the first Japanese airline to offer service from Tokyo Narita Airport to Vladivostok International Airport on 16 March 2020. This new route is part of a broad ANA strategy to increase its presence in Russia by offering service to additional cities across the country.

“ANA has long targeted Russia for expansion, and we chose Vladivostok as our first Russian destination because it serves as a gateway that connects Eurasia with the Pacific,” said Seiichi Takahashi, senior vice president of ANA. “At ANA, we aim to serve as a gateway for our passengers that allow them to reach new destinations and connect with new cultures. Our desire to offer unrivalled service and meet emerging passenger needs led us to begin service to Vladivostok.”

Located just two and a half hours from Tokyo, Vladivostok has become a popular tourist destination for its distinct architecture and the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside. The city is well known in Japan for its scenic streets and historic buildings, but it has also become a vital economic hub for Japan-Russia trade in recent years and as such is a common destination for business travellers. This new route is symbolic of the growing economic cooperation between Japan and Russia.
