Sheremetyevo Airport (SVO)

  (+7) 495 578 65 65 more than a year ago

Sheremetyevo has six passenger terminals: A, B, and C in the northern sector and terminals D, E, and F and the railway terminal ‘Aeroexpress’ in the southern sector.

Make sure you know which terminal you need as the terminals are not close to each other. You can easily and quickly go between the southern D, E, and F terminals, and in the northern sector of the airport at terminal C there are free shuttle buses to the southern terminals for passengers with plane tickets and proof of identity. The journey is about 20 minutes. You can also take a public bus or a taxi.

All terminals are equipped with interactive information stands, which include information on types of transport, routes, times and fares. They also offer free Wi-Fi.

Getting to the city
By far the best way to get into town is via the Aeroexpress train which runs between the southern sector of the airport and Belorussky Train Station, right next to the Belorusskaya metro station (green line 2 and circle line). Tickets can be purchased at the airport's train terminal, just follow the signs for it. Trains run almost every half an hour, although be sure to check the timetable in the train station or at the Aeroexpress website. The first train leaves Sheremetyevo at 05:00 and the last at 00:30. The journey time is 35 minutes.

A taxi from Sheremetyevo airport to the centre can take one to two hours depending on the traffic.

Making a transfer
If flying into Sheremetyevo and making a transfer between terminals to another Russian city, follow the signs for transit under 4 hours (that is if your flight leaves less than four hours after landing) and you will be directed to a separate passport control and customs. If you don't follow this route, you are likely to miss your connecting flight as queues at passport control and traffic outside will give you a tough race against the clock.

A new, modern hall on the 2nd floor of Terminal F has opened for transit passengers with flights leaving up to 24 hours after landing at Sheremetyevo airport, and who don’t have Russian visas. The hall is equipped with free showers, free Wi-Fi, and places to recharge mobile devices.
