The city of Abakan today is the largest in the Republic of Khakassia. It is located down south central in Siberia. Thinking of the distances one has to bridge in this geographic area, an airport is a must-have for most places and is crucial for public transportation. Abakan airport calls itself “International” but this is mainly for cargo connections to China. For passengers Vladivostok air currently (season Winter 2008-2009) maintains a regular flight connection to Vladivostok and Moscow-Vnukovo.
