The airline "Vladivostok Avia", part of the group of "Aeroflot", was founded in the year 1932, during the creation of the Vladivostok Air Company, and up to 1994 years, the air carrier has been designated just for this organization.




The airline is engaged in air transportation of passengers, cargo, mail on international and domestic lines. Until 2009, Vladivostok Air was owned by Knevichi Airport (Vladivostok). In 2009, he was transferred to the operational management of Sheremetyevo Airport. 

Earlier in the year 2004, the airline entered into an international association IATA. In 2008 year "Vladivostok Avia" pledged to carry passengers of the bankrupt airline "Delavia." A little later, it became the base carrier at the airport of Khabarovsk.

"Vladivostok Avia" was the first to exploit the new dalnomagistralnye airliners Tu-204-300. Therefore, the airline was able to carry out non-stop flights from Vladivostok to St. Petersburg and Moscow. Prior to that, we use the-154, which could not overcome such long distances without first making a stopover for refueling. Tu-154 7 units were replaced by leasing aircraft "Airbus A320." Also in 2009, the airline began using its first wide-body "Airbus A330-300». Before 2010 years 2 received more units of this type of aircraft.

In November 2011 years "Aeroflot" has acquired a controlling stake. Thus "Vladivostok Avia" has become a regional division of the national carrier. As a result of the reorganization of the fleet, the 2012 withdraw all dalnomagistralnye liners "Airbus A330."

The management and owners

52,16% of shares belong to JSC "Airline Aurora". The remaining dispose of private shareholders, of which the largest is considered to be of "Aerogruz» - 27,13%.


During the 2006 period of the year, the airline's revenue amounted to more than 5 billion rubles, of which profits were 20,87 million rubles. Until 2012, there was a small but steady increase in passenger traffic. But in 2014, the airline abandoned its business and financial activities, which resulted in a loss - 600 million rubles. In August of the same year, the Federal Agency suspended the certificate of Vladivostok Avia. The reasons were the absence of the required number of aircraft for charter flights and the deterioration of the main production indicators. 

Since 1994, the airline was officially established, and in 1995, the first long-haul aircraft was purchased. Tu-134MUsed by the company so far. Carrier performs its flights on the territory of Russia and abroad, to a greater extent this applies to the Asia-Pacific region.

Domestic flights I was completely satisfied. There is sometimes a delay, but they are not critical. reasonable rates, docking surprisingly held successfully and in a timely manner. All level.

Company decent, large, but I think that the selection of personnel management of the company should be treated more carefully, because the kind of money people deserve at least respect.

Planes new, high-quality service. Flights in fact delay is extremely rare. Flight attendants are uniquely. Shaped style. Very pleased to have found for themselves a unique carrier.

The airline is good enough. Passengers services in a comprehensive and timely manner. Flights still no once is not detained, while every year the flight geography is expanding in all directions.

I had to fly from Khabarovsk to Tokyo from Vladivostok Avia. Frankly, I was very ashamed of ugly Russian service. Passengers are offered for breakfast stale sandwich, mayonnaise and packaged coffee. All this was in a cardboard box, on which was inscribed "Bon appetit." He surprised the phrase flight attendant: "Who else boiling water?". Since the bags of tea and coffee is calculated per passenger. I'll use another airline!

Recently I decided to fly to visit. They offered to use the Vladivostok Avia airline. When loaded onto the plane, the pilot is informed in two languages. All staff are welcoming and friendly. During the flight, flight attendants handed out blankets and magazines, newspapers as needed. Later they offered different drinks and food. The flight was calm. On approaching the 'finish', the pilot said that we will soon be in place. I liked the crew. They do their job very well. thanks

Good afternoon! Almost every year I fly with Vladivostok Air to St. Petersburg. I like the service of the service, the way to treat passengers. There is a good variety of food. The flight attendants are friendly and helpful. Takeoff as well as landing are always soft. The salon is always clean and comfortable. There are no bad smells in the toilet. I am always satisfied. Thanks to Vladivostok Air

I flew with Vladivostok Air to Seoul and back. And the round trip flight went fine. The flight attendants are very smiling and friendly. Special thanks to the ship commander. With him "at the head" flew back. The pilot constantly communicated with passengers via radio. He said where at the given moment we are, what altitude, speed, etc. This is important for me, because I'm afraid to fly, and his voice inspired reliability =)) The food is absolutely normal, back it seemed to me better than there. The plane is clean and comfortable. I am very happy with these airlines. Thank you for a great flight and a soft landing!
