In 2017, the airport handled 40.1 million passengers and 308,090 aircraft movements, making the airport the 50th busiest airport in the world, the busiest in the Russian Federation and former USSR. During 2018, the Airport reported a 14,3% increase in passengers for a total of 45.8 million. [5] There was also a 15.9% increase in aircraft traffic year over year.[6]

In December 2018, following the results of the Great Names of Russia contest, the Sheremetyevo airport was named after the great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin.


The asset consolidationEdit

Assets of Sheremetyevo International Airport JSC were consolidated as part of execution of the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation dated August 28, 2015, for the purpose of strategic development of the Moscow Aviation Cluster and large-scale modernization and reconstruction of Sheremetyevo International Airport for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Consolidation was carried out in two stages. On May 31, 2017, the final second stage of consolidation was actually completed. As a result, reorganization took place—namely, Sheremetyevo International Airport JSC took over Sheremetyevo Airport JSC (on the basis of resolutions of the general meetings of Sheremetyevo International Airport JSC and Sheremetyevo Airport JSC dated January 26, 2017).

As a result of the consolidation of assets of Sheremetyevo International Airport JSC, owners of the joint-stock company became Sheremetyevo Holding LLC (66.06% are fully owned by Sheremetyevo Holding LLC, 65.22% of which are owned by the trust of the families of Aleksandr Ponomarenko and Aleksandr Skorobogatko, and 34.78%, by Arkadiy Rotenberg), the Federal Agency for State Property Management (Rosimushchestvo) (30.46%), Aeroflot (2.43%), and VEB Capital LLC (1.05%).

The General Director of Sheremetyevo International Airport JSC (since May 12, 2005) is Mikhail Vasilenko.


Early yearsEdit

"Flying saucer" of the former Sheremetyevo-1 (initial Terminal B)

The airport was originally built as a military airfield called Sheremetyevsky (Russian: Шереметьевский) named after a settlement with the same name. The decree about the construction of the Central Airdrome of the Air Force near the settlement of Chashnikovo (Russian: Чашниково) on the outskirts of Moscow was issued on September 1, 1953 by the Council of Ministers of the Soviet Union. The airport became operational on November 7, 1957 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the October Revolution.[7]

After it was decided to turn the airport into a civilian one, Sheremetyevo was opened on 11 August 1959; the first international flight took place on 1 June 1960 to Berlin Schönefeld Airport. The new airport received its name for two nearby venues: the village of Sheremetyevsky and the Savelov station on the railway of the same name. Sheremetyevo-1 (used by domestic flights) was opened on 3 September 1964. On 12 September 1967, the first scheduled passenger flight of the Tupolev Tu-134 departed from Sheremetyevo (to Stockholm), followed by the first scheduled flight of the Ilyushin Il-62 (to Montreal) on 15 September. Sheremetyevo-2, the larger of the two terminal complexes, opened on 1 January 1980 for the 1980 Summer Olympics. It was built according to the principles of design of Hannover-Langenhagen Airport and was the arrival and departure point for international flights. Flights to cities in Russia and charter flights arrived and departed from Sheremetyevo-1.

Development in the 2000sEdit

In the 2000s, Sheremetyevo saw growing competition from Domodedovo International Airport, which was more modern and convenient to access. With major airlines leaving Sheremetyevo (most notably, Lufthansa, El Al, British Airways, Iberia, Japan Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Austrian Airlines, and Swiss International Air Lines), the need for reconstruction became evident.[citation needed]

In July 2010, a walkway opened between Terminals D, E, F, and the Aeroexpress railway terminal on the public access side.[8] In November 2010, a walkway opened between Terminals D, E, and F on the security side.[9] Both of have simplified transfer between transit flights. Ultimately, after the northern the recent construction work, the airport now has the capacity to receive more than 40 million passengers annually.[10] Since 2009 all terminals have been identified by letters (Latin characters). In December 2011, a new Area control center (ACC) was opened. It consolidates the gathering, monitoring, and control of the airport's different control centres across all of the organizations that affect its efficient operation.[11] The Situational Center also forms part of the airport control center. SC is intended for joint work of top-managers, heads of state bodies, and partners of Sheremetyevo. It is activated only in the case of an emergency.[12]

Development in the 2010sEdit

In 2013, TPS Avia successfully won a competitive tender to develop Sheremetyevo International Airport’s northern area, including a new passenger terminal, a new freight terminal, a refuelling area and a tunnel linking the passenger terminal to three others terminals.[13]

In February 2016, TPS Avia combined its assets with Sheremetyevo Airport and committed to invest US$840 million to upgrade and expand the airport's infrastructure – as a result TPS Avia secured 68% stake in Sheremetyevo Airport.[14] This infrastructure project, called the Long-Term Development Plan, aims to increase airport’s capacity to 80 million passengers a year by 2026.[15]

Sheremetyevo International Airport was the official airport of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. During the tournament, the airport observed a 16% increase in landing operations and an 11% increase in passenger traffic.[15]

In late 2018, SVO enacted a series of changes to its flight traffic. Rossiya Airlines announced the transfer of its flights from Vnukovo Airport to Sheremetyevo International Airport starting October 28, 2018. Rossiya Airlines is owned by Aeroflot. British Airways also launched direct flights from London Heathrow (LHR) to Sheremetyevo International Airport on the same day.[3] Syrian airline Cham Wings Airlines began direct flights from Damascus to SVO in November of 2018 as well.[4]

In 2019, the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) began testing an automated passport control system at SVO. This system relies on biometric data and foreign passport recognition to allow Russian passengers to move through border control with fewer movement restrictions. If a success, the FSB may implement this system in other Russian airports. [16]


In 2018, Sheremetyevo International Airport has been recognized for the best customer service in the busiest airports in Europe category by ACI's global Airport Service Quality (ASQ) program. [17]

In 2018, Sheremetyevo enter the list of the world's best airports — ACI Director General's Roll of Excellence.

The Official Aviation Guide (OAG) ranked Sheremetyevo International Airport as the most punctual major airport (20 – 30 million departing seats) in the world for 2018 with an on-time performance of 87%. [18]

In February 2019, SVO won an award for strengthening Russia’s national security with its perimeter protection system. [19]

In February 2019, Sheremetyevo on top in on-time departure performance in the Major Airports category for February 2019, with 93.65% flights departed on time. [20]

In March 2019, Sheremetyevo International Airport was officially awarded a 5-star terminal rating from Skytrax[21]. This is a prestigious award for airports and airlines acknowledging the top quality of passenger services. Terminal B received the 5-star rating after a comprehensive audit.

Terminals and infrastructureEdit

Sheremetyevo International Airport has four operating passenger terminals and one special terminal reserved for the use of private and business aviation. The airport's terminals are divided into two groups based on geographical location: the north and south terminal areas. The two terminal areas are linked by regular internal and external bus services.

North terminalsEdit

Terminal AEdit

Terminal A

Opened in 2012 to the east of Terminal B, Terminal A is used for the servicing of business and private aviation. Twenty-two remote stands, which previously made up the 'Western Sector' of Terminal B, now belong to Terminal A.

Terminal BEdit

Terminal B

Terminal B, previously Sheremetyevo-1, catered mainly to internal low-cost flights.[10] The terminal had 64 remote aircraft stands, including 8 stands used for the maintenance of Aeroflot aircraft, and five in the 'Eastern Sector' which were used to service cargo flights. Located in the northern part of the airport, the terminal was put into operation in 1964. It was divided into two buildings: the arrival hall zone and departures area. Terminal B was remarkable for its architecturally unique and unusual spaceship-like gate area, which was connected to the main building by a passenger footbridge. The terminal's design was masterminded by a project team working under the guidance of architects and G Elkin Yu Kryukov. The terminal was demolished in August 2015 to allow a construction of a terminal building which began in October 2015.[22]

The new terminal B commenced its operations on 3 May 2018, with the Aeroflot's flight to Saratov. All airlines that have domestic flights from Sheremetyevo and some flights of Aeroflot began shifting to Terminal B from Terminal D. Compared to the previous terminal B, that was demolished, new terminal will have an increased passenger capacity of 20 million passengers and will serve domestic flights only. As of November 2018, Aeroflot has consolidated all of its domestic services at Terminal B, with the exception of flights to far eastern destinations in Vladivostok, Khabarovsk and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Flights to the eastern Russian shore continue out of SVO’s Terminal D. [23]

The terminal is connected by the Interterminal underground passage[24] with terminals D, E, F and the Aeroexpress railway station.

Terminal CEdit

Now demolished former Terminal C

On March 12, 2007, Sheremetyevo opened its first entirely new-build terminal for the servicing of international flights. Located in the northern part of the airport and adjacent to Terminal B, it had 30 check-in counters, 36 passport control booths, a three-level automatic baggage sorting system, and six air bridges. Terminal C was closed on April 1, 2017 and demolished.

The construction of the new terminal already in progress. It will be opened late 2019.

South terminalsEdit

Terminal DEdit

Terminal D

Terminal D, opened in November 2009, is adjacent to Terminal F. The 172,000 m2 (1,850,000 sq ft) building is a hub for Aeroflot and its SkyTeam partners, with capacity for 12 million passengers per year.[25] Aeroflot had been trying to implement the project of a new terminal (Sheremetyevo-3) since January 2001. However, construction only began in 2005, with commissioning of the complex finally taking place on 15 November 2009. The acquisition of its own terminal was a condition of Aeroflot's entry into the SkyTeam airline alliance, thus necessitating the construction. The main contractor for the build was a Turkish company Enka. Terminal D has 22 jetways and 11 remote stands. On November 15, 2009 at 9:15 a.m., the first flight from Terminal D (the new official name of Sheremetyevo-3) departed for the southern resort city of Sochi. Despite this, Aeroflot took a number of months (due to unexpected administrative delays) to transfer all of its international flights from Terminal F to D (a full transfer was originally planned for February 2010).[26] Whilst previously Terminal D had remained a separate legal entity from the rest of Sheremetyevo Airport, in spring 2012, it became an integrated unit of "Sheremetyevo International Airport" JSC. As part of the deal, Aeroflot, VEB Bank, and VTB Bank, all of which had invested in the construction of Terminal D, became part shareholders in the airport as a whole. The basis for the architectural and artistic image of Terminal D is that of a giant swan with outstretched wings.

There is an official multi storey parking at Terminal D connected with the main building by means of a pedestrian bridge. The parking size is about 4100 lots, however it has a relatively dense layout, so in most cases it is difficult to get out of the car without hitting the neighbouring car.

Between 2014 and 2018, Terminal D used to be the only terminal at Sheremetyevo that was able to serve domestic flights. Even since new Terminal B was opened and commenced its services, Terminal D continues to operate non-Aeroflot domestic flights.

Beginning on October 28, 2018, Terminal D will handle all of Rossiya Airlines’ Moscow-originating domestic flights and its international service to Indonesia.[27]

Terminal EEdit

Terminal E[28] opened in 2010 as a capacity expansion project, connecting terminals D and F. The terminal's construction has allowed for the development of terminals D and F, as well as the railway station, into a single south terminal complex. The terminals of this complex are connected by a number of pedestrian walkways with travelators, thus allowing for passengers to move freely between its constituent facilities. In December 2010, a new chapel dedicated to St. Nicholas opened on the second floor of Terminal E. The terminal is used for international flights, primarily by Aeroflot and its SkyTeam partners. Terminal E has 8 jetway equipped gates. The V-Express Transit Hotel between security/passport check-ins provides short-term accommodations for passengers changing planes without having to present a visa for entering Russia. The hotel drew international attention in June 2013 when Edward Snowden checked into the hotel while seeking asylum.[29]

Terminal FEdit

Sheremetyevo-2 (now known as Terminal F) was built for the 1980 Moscow Olympics.

Opened on May 6, 1980 for the Moscow Summer Olympics, Terminal F, previously Sheremetyevo-2, has 15 jetways and 21 remote aircraft stands. The terminal was designed to service 6 million passengers per year. Until the completion of Terminal C, it was the only terminal that serviced international flights. The design is a larger version of the one of Hannover-Langenhagen Airport by the same architects. A major reconstruction of the terminal and its interior space was completed by late 2009. For the convenience of passengers, the departures lounge and Duty Free zone were thoroughly modernised, whilst a number of partition walls were removed to create extra retail and lounge space.

It was announced that terminal F will be re-constructed in 2021, after the construction of terminal C is completed.[30]

Aeroexpress, a subsidiary of Russian Railways[72] operates a nonstop line, connecting the airport to Belorussky station in downtown Moscow. One-way journey takes 35 minutes. The trains offer adjustable seats, luggage compartments, restrooms, electric outlets. Business-class coaches available.
The service started in November 2004, when express train connection was established from Savyolovsky station to Lobnya station, which is 7 km (4.3 mi) from the airport, with the remainder of the journey served by bus or taxi. On 10 June 2008, a 60,000 square meter (645,000 ft2) rail terminal opened in front of Terminal F, with direct service from Savyolovsky station. A shuttle bus service ferried passengers to terminals B and C.[73] From 28 August 2009, the line was extended to Belorussky station with plans to serve all three of Moscow's main airports from a single point of boarding, and service to Savyolovsky station terminated.

Interterminal Underground PassageEdit

South station of the people mover

The Interterminal underground passage connects the Terminal B with Terminals D, E, F and the Aeroexpress railway station.[24]

The Interterminal underground passage consists of two separate tunnels: one of them used for a people transportation and the other one — for luggage. The former one employs a Double Shuttle Cable Liner system, an automated people mover, by the Doppelmayr where two independent cable-propelled trains run on separate tracks. In each train the first two carriages are used for landside (not checked-in) passengers and the last two ones are used for airside passengers (after a security check).[74]

At the 1st floor of the Terminal B there is an entrance to Sheremetyevo 1 — the northern station. The entrance to Sheremetyevo 2 — the southern station — is at the passage between the terminals D and E.[75]


Moscow can be reached by the municipal Mosgortrans bus lines: 817 to station Planernaya of Moscow Metro Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya Line (#7), 851 to station Rechnoy Vokzal of Zamoskvoretskaya Line (#2), departures every 10 minutes, travel time 33–55 minutes by schedule depending on the terminal served. At night time bus N1 (Russian: Н1) (departures every 30 minutes between 3am and 5:40am) connects the airport to Moscow's Leningradsky Avenue, downtown area and Leninsky Avenue. Travel time 30–90 minutes, fare is 50 rubles (as of September, 2016).[76]

Other buses serve the connections to the nearest cities: Zelenograd, Khimki (routes 43,62), Tver.


The main road leading to the airport—Leningradskoye Highway—has experienced large traffic jams. Since 23 December 2014, a toll road to the airport has been opened. It connects with MKAD near Dmitrovskoe Highway. Now it is possible to reach the airport in ten minutes, avoiding traffic jams.[77]

Official airport taxis are available from taxi counters in arrivals. Prices to the city are fixed based on zones.
