- Tourism routes to Southeast Asia have become popular among Primorsky region air passengers since long ago. Previously, Far Easterners could fly to Thailand only by charter flights or regular flights with a transfer in hub airports of China, Korea and Japan, says Alexander Bobrov, Head of Commercial Department. – Now that we offer regular nonstop flights from Vladivostok to Bangkok, people can conveniently travel to the capital of Thailand without any stopovers in other airports. The new flight also allows for convenient connection flights from Bangkok which undoubtedly expands the spectrum of tourism opportunities for the citizens of Primorsky region and the whole Far East.
