Major Japanese airlines All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Japan Airlines (JAL) have announced that they’ll be launching nonstop flights between Narita International Airport and Vladivostok. ANA will start the new service in March 2020, while JAL aims to kickstart the flights on its summer 2020 timetable.

As the first Japanese airlines to operate the route, both ANA and JAL plan to utilize Boeing 737s. Currently, two Russian airlines, namely the Russian Oneworld airline and Aeroflot subsidiary Aurora Airlines, also fly between the Russian port city and Narita.

The addition of this new service looks set to benefit both countries in the long run, especially with Vladivostok’s position as a growing business destination and a tourist spot.

It is also the terminus of the Trans-Siberian Railway, which connects the city to Moscow in a seven-day journey. Meanwhile, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics also seems to be a motivating factor for the launch of the new flights.
