Moscow airports

Moscow has two international airports, in addition to several national ones. In general, flights from Europe go to Sheremetyevo, which handles sixty percent of the international flights to Moscow. This airport will give you some of an old-fashion Soviet experience, with its grey and bit shabby atmosphere. However, it is close to the city, only ten kilometres away from the outer ring road of Moscow.

The Domodedovo airport was initially set up for domestic flights, but is growing fast and is facilitating more international flights every day. It is much more modern and in general a more pleasant experience than the Sheremetyevo. However, it is located much further, 22 kilometres from Moscow’s outer ring road.
