 SVO Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport Info & Guide

Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport

Where is Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport?  

As the nation's capital city, Moscow is the centre of political and financial Russia. Yet, the once capital of the former Soviet Union boasts many reminders of its Soviet and imperial past. Everywhere you look in Moscow, you can see Soviet-era monoliths and post-Soviet kitsch.

Moscow is an architecture lover's dream, with its onion-shaped domes and famous subway platforms. This sprawling metropolis, set on the Moskva River, which bends its way through the city, Moscow is also home to palaces, cathedrals and numerous museums.

Moscow Sheremetyevo International Airport (IATA: SVO, ICAO: UUEE), also known as Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport, Airport Moscow Sheremetyevo or Svo Sheremetyevo is northwest of central Moscow, in Moscow Oblast, Russia. 

In 2015, Sheremetyevo Airport served 31,612,000 passengers, making it Russia's and Moscow's 2nd busiest airport.

SVO is one of three major Moscow area airports; the others are Moscow Domodedovo International Airport (DME) and Moscow Vnukovo International Airport (VKO). A fourth airport, Moscow Zhukovsky Ramenskoye International Airport (ZIA), opened in May 2016. Most international passengers fly via SVO or DME. All share an IATA city code: MOW. 

Airlines serving Domodedovo Airport include Aeroflot (hub), Alitalia, Astana, Czech, Cyprus, Delta, Finnair, France, KLM and Scandinavian.

Destinations served by SVO Airport include Amsterdam, Berlin, Budapest, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Geneva, Istanbul, Kiev, Munich, New York, Oslo, Paris, Prague, Rome, St. Petersburg, Stockholm, Venice and Zurich.

Sheremetyevo Airport is a dual terminal facility, the result of which is that the 2 terminals - with the runway sitting between them - almost operate as separate entities.
