A new airport rail link has been launched connecting Knevichy Airport and Vladivostok. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev officially opened the new service.

Aeroexpress Vladivostok uses new six car ED9M trains made at the Demikhovsky Engineering Plant. Each train has 475 seats.

The first passenger on the new service was Vladivostok citizen, Vadim Nozdrin, who received flowers and a commemorative certificate from railway officials. The trains run every two hours and will be stepped up to hourly  frequency from September. Journey time is set at 55 minutes.

Vladivostok is Russia’s main warm water port in the Far East and the head quarters of the Russian Navy’s Pacific Fleet. Says Mr Medvedev, ‘This is a good train; it is very convenient. Now it takes less than one hour to get from Vladivostok to the airport.’
