Being one of three entry ways into Russia’s capital, Moscow Sheremetyevo International Airport is a hub for several major Russian airline companies. First of all, Moscow’s second busiest airport proudly serves as a base for Aeroflot. The national airline of the Russian Federation operates a diverse schedule that features more than 50 total destinations. Aeroflot links Moscow with large cities in Russia like Irkutsk, Kazan, Kaliningrad, Novosibirsk, Perm, Sochi, St. Petersburg, Vladivostok, and Yekaterinburg.
Aeroflot offers great direct service to former Soviet nations. Baku, Bishkek, Kiev, Minsk, Odessa, Tashkent, Vilnius, and Yerevan are some of the major destinations in Russia’s neighboring countries that can be reached via the Russian flag carrier airline. Of course, Aeroflot’s fleet offers reliable trips to major European destinations. Athens, Berlin, Bucharest, Istanbul, London, Milan, Paris, Rome, Stockholm, and Zurich can be found on the timetable listed for Aeroflot service.
The international service offered by Russia’s largest airline also extends to Asia, the Middle East, and North America. China, Egypt, Israel, and the United States make up the diverse international schedule that features long haul flights operated by Aeroflot. Most Aeroflot flights depart in Terminal D at Moscow Sheremetyevo International Airport and some service is also available in Terminal E and Terminal F.
Transaero is the second busiest Russian airline company that is based at Moscow Sheremetyevo International Airport. Operating charter flights at Moscow’s secondary airport, the domestic airline is the number one choice for getting to popular resorts within the Mediterranean Sea region. The Egyptian resorts in Hurghada and Sharm el Sheikh can be reached by Transaero. Turkey’s Antalya, Bodrum and Dalaman are also listed under this Russian airline’s schedule. Major Mediterranean Islands such as Rhodes and Cyprus are also accessible via charter Transaero flights that take off from Terminal F at Sheremetyevo International Airport. Nordavia, Nordwind Airlines and Vladivostok Air are some other Russian airlines that offer limited service at Moscow’s second busiest airport.
