Moscow is served by three large airports, and passengers flying from Moscow with Qatar Airways will depart from the largest airport in the country, Domodedovo International Airport. This huge air hub handles approximately 30 million passengers a year, and is an efficient and well-run airport.
Current redevelopment of the airport will mean that once completed the entire airport will operate from a single, giant terminal with extremely modern systems including X-ray and enhanced security systems.
The current airport offers a good selection of facilities as well as a very efficient service for passengers travelling to destinations across the globe.
Transportation and parking
The city’s Paveletsky Station is connected to the airport via the high-speed, non-stop Aeroexpress train. The journey time from the centre of Moscow to the airport using Aeroexpress is approximately 50 minutes and is the easiest way to travel from the centre of Moscow.
A 24-hour minibus shuttle service operates between the Domodedovskaya underground station and the airport and takes approximately 15 minutes, while taxis are plentiful and take around 90 minutes from the centre of the city.
It is strongly advised, though, to ensure that you use official taxis, and travellers should ask their hotel concierge to arrange the pick up for them. Spaces for more than 5,000 cars are available for both short and long-term parking, and a VIP parking area is located next to the international terminal.
Arriving at Domodedovo International Airport
Passengers flying from Moscow with Qatar Airways depart from Concourse A, which is part of the main terminal and is specifically for international flights.
The terminal building itself is vast, so utilise the information boards to see which gate your flight is departing from.
Facilities and amenities
Meeting rooms are available for business travellers, while public lounges are open to all passengers. Wi-Fi is available for a fee and there are free Internet kiosks throughout the terminal, as well as mobile phone charging points.
A children’s area keeps young travellers entertained, and there are also a surprising number of retail outlets selling very good quality goods and accessories. Duty Free outlets are available once you have cleared customs, and the food hall offers a wide selection of light snacks and more substantial meals.
