Hi

So Aeroflot has a GREAT deal going to UAE, however there is a 6 hour stop over in SVO.

Anyone have past experiences flying on SVO and connecting?

I have my mother and little sister, so I am a bit more hesitant to take them somewhere that may not be that great.

The arriving flight into SVO arrives at 1:30 PM and my flight out leaves at 7:30 PM...


flown on..747-200/300/400 - 777-200/200ER/200LR/300/300ER/ - 767-200/300ER - 757-200/300 - 737-300/400/500/600/700/900/9

SVO transit is totally fine - nothing out of the ordinary. The airport is completely different from what it was even a mere 4 years ago. If you had asked regarding transit back in 2007, I'd say stay away.

There is a single sterile zone for post-security/transit passengers that runs between terminals D, E and F. You'll have plenty of time to walk around if needed. Here is more information if you need it:

You could take the train to downtown Moscow and spend a few hours there. It's a 35 minute ride from the airport to Moscow and the trains run every 30 minutes. However, I know Americans need a visa to visit, not sure if you need one to transit through.

As far as the airport terminal goes, it's better than most in the US. I would have no hesitations about transiting SVO. Aeroflot also has excellent service.

Quoting kngkyle (Reply 2):

According to the link above:

"While waiting for a connecting flight, foreign citizens can stay in Sheremetyevo Airport for 24 hours with no Russian visa issued. The passenger should have a ticket from the airlines for the next flight with the places confirmed."

That would sound tempting from HEL to Asia - if they just had better connections. And I don't feel welcome in Russia, they have some strange laws there..
