Moscow Airports:

Sheremetyevo, Domodedovo and Vnukovo

Handling 14 million passengers a year, Sheremetyevo International Airport is a hub for the Russian airline Aeroflot and a popular choice for travelers, thanks to its relatively close location to Moscow proper. Just 18 miles north of the city, the airport offers numerous taxis, shuttles and even public transportation options. The only setback is that a trip into the city can take as long as two hours, depending on traffic.

The airport has been operating since the 1960s and consists of two separate terminals. Since the terminals are not physically connected, the airport has the feel of being two different airports sharing runway space. Plans are also under way to open a third terminal to handle increased traffic.

Currently, Terminal 1 handles all domestic traffic and flights to Belarus, with Aeroflot, Belavia, Aeroflot-Nord, Donavia, Rossiya, Tatarstan Airlines and Ural Airlines operating there. Terminal 2 is for international flights, and is further subdivided to include a facility for just the short-haul international routes.

Twenty-two miles south of Moscow lies Domodedovo International Airport. As the largest airport in all of Russia both in terms of cargo and passenger traffic, it handles 20 million passengers a year.

Open since 1964, Domodedovo International has done an excellent job of growing and changing with the times. Travelers making their way through the airport today can expect Wi-Fi throughout, and executive lounges for business and first-class passengers. There are also restaurants and shops to choose from. The airport has a single, gigantic terminal building, which is divided into two different levels, one for domestic flights and one for international routes.

Getting from the airport into Moscow proper is quite simple, with the Aeroexpress providing a way for travelers to miss all of the highway traffic. The train ride is nonstop and takes 40 minutes. Trains run 24 hours a day.

Among the carriers using this airport are Air Berlin, Air Malta, Air Moldova, Austrian Airlines, Belavia, British Airways, El Al, EgyptAir, Iberia Airlines, Japan Airlines, Kuban Airlines, Lufthansa, Moskovia Airlines, S7 Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Transaero, Ural Airlines, Vietnam Airlines, United Airlines and VIM Airlines.

Vnukovo International Airport is the oldest of Moscow’s airports. Most of the international airlines that operate out of here are for Eastern European countries.
