When you land in the country, your acquaitance with it begins with the airport. We offer you some information about the main airports of Moscow, and we begin with Sheremetyevo, one of the biggest Russian airports in terms of international regular flights. Opened in 1959 is still developing, constructing new terminals and has reconstructed the air strips to make serving flights on Airbuses A380 possible. Moreover, one more, new manoeuvring area is to be constructed in the nearest time. The first-rate air carrier of Russia, and the oldest one, Aeroflot Air Company is based in Sheremetyevo. The world first-rate aviation aliances are also served in Sheremetyevo. It has the only one serious disadvantage: location tied with transportation difficulties.

The airport consists of a few terminals with alphabetical symbols A, B (earlier Sheremetyevo-1), C, D, E and F (Earlier there were two terminals, Sheremetyevo-1 and Sheremetyevo-2).

Terminal A deals with business aviation,
Terminal B serves flights of cost air carriers,
Terminal C – serves international flights,
Terminal D (ex-Sheremetyevo-3) – serves Aeroflot flights only, domestic and international ones.
Terminal E – quite a new terminal, has recently been put into service.
Terminal F – ex-Sheremetyevo-2.

Terminals D, E and F are supposed to be integrated by a passage.
Moreover, the airport includes railway terminal for Aeroexpress and hotels. Aeroexpress terminal is situated next to the Terminals F and D, in the southern part of the airport complex.The Terminals B and C are situated in the northern part of it. The passengers arrived by Aeroexpress are transported to Terminals B and C by free bus, others, who came by other means of transport, can take a shuttle.

Flights and air carriers The airport capacity reaches 3, 500 passengers per hour. Half of the flights are international ones, from and to far-abroad countries. 6% of the flights are services to CIS countries. 70% of the flights are Aeroflot ones. Aeroflot is a member of Sky-Team Aliance. Besides Sky Team, such Aviation Aliances as Star Aliance and Oneworld are served in Sheremetyevo.

Location and getting around

The airport of Sheremetyevo is located northwards from Moscow. You can get there by car, taxi or private one, or by public transport, which is lately strictly recommended because of the road works on the Leningradskoye highway turned the highway into a traffic jam. Leningradskoye highway is essencially rich in traffic jams, but now it is unbearable. The airport and city administration have in plans the reconstruction of it, but now it looks like this:

By car

There are about 10 parkings around the airport. The prices depend on the location of parking and between 150 and1200 rubles for a day. Anyway, take into account, that going by car to this airport is not a good idea now.

You can check in for the flight already in the railway terminal. Aeroexpress arrives to Terminal F, from where you can take a free bus if your flight departs from Terminals B or C. The bus runs every 15-20 minutes. Trip on Aeroexpress takes about half an hour and costs 300 rubles.
