Vladivostok International Airport (Russian: Международный аэропорт «Владивосток» Mezhdunarodnyi aeroport Vladivostok) (IATA: VVO, ICAO: UHWW) is located near Artyom, Primorsky Krai, Russia roughly an hour's drive (44 kilometers) north of the center of the city of Vladivostok. It was formerly known as Knevichi Airport, named after village Knevichi. It consists of two passenger terminals: the old Domestic Terminal B and the new International Terminal A.
The airport has two airfields, Lake Springs and Knevichi.
- Lake Springs Airfield
The Lake Springs airfield was designed for aircraft operating on regional routes. It has two artificially covered landing strips with a width of 21 meters. One is 1000 meters in length and the second is 600 meters. It isn't currently used for scheduled flights, and general aviation operates from there instead.
The Knevichi airfield was designed for all types of aircraft and has two artificially covered take-off and landing strips: Both runways are 3,500 meters in length and 60 meters in width.
Famous quotes containing the word airport:
“Airplanes are invariably scheduled to depart at such times as 7:54, 9:21 or 11:37. This extreme specificity has the effect on the novice of instilling in him the twin beliefs that he will be arriving at 10:08, 1:43 or 4:22, and that he should get to the airport on time. These beliefs are not only erroneous but actually unhealthy.”
—Fran Lebowitz (b. 1950)
