Aeroflot board of directors took a decision to go ahead with the construction of brand new terminal in Sheremetyevo. It was a long awaited decision (they started discussions in January 2001). Apparently it is going to be a state of art modern passenger terminal and Aeroflot will transfer most of its operations to there.

Good decision!

To Rjnut:

If Sheremetyevo 3 services will meet the international standards I am sure foreign airlines will gladly use it as their base in Moscow. From what Aeroflot people say, I understand that they are building Terminal 3 for themselves (something like Terminal 4 at Heathrow), so I am not sure whether foreign airlines will even have a chance of using T3. Unless of course it will be big enough to accomodate everybody.

I'll believe it when I see it. Anyway, I think the idea is for it to be the Skyteam hub...

Correct me if I'm mistaken, but Terminal two right now is the main international terminal, and Terminal one is the domestic building. Perhaps T2 can be renovated after the new T3 is complete, and maybe T1 can be be torn down (I've heard horror stories about that one!!).

How hard is it to connect between Sheremetyevo and Domodedovo? I'd hate to see Moscow in a situation like Paris (CDG-ORL) or New York (JFK-LGA or EWR)!!

So how are they going to avoid bombs being planted on such big construction site? Hiring foreign construction firms with proper security standards?
Too many people are eager for bribes that´s the big problem for security...

Domodedovo is 1hr in light traffic from Sheremetyevo, 2-????hrs in rush hour traffic. Vnukovo is similar, but shorter between it and Domodedovo. Public transportation is really the only option if the MKAD (beltway around Moscow) is jammed. It is not for the faint of heart. Terminal 2 is the international terminal although many flights leaving for CIS, Near East, and charter destinations go from Terminal 1. They are on opposites sides of the runway, and it is about 15-30 minutes to connect between them if you time it right and don't have lots of baggage. T2 is far worse I think as T1 has no pretense of being a "western" airport. I think customs and immigration are a lot friendlier there as well (DME is even nicer). I dunno where they plan on putting T3, but all three could operate at once. T2 has gotten a bit better, despite being the pinnacle of crappy East German design. The taxi mafia at each terminal sucks though. Anyway, as I said before, I will believe it when I see it.

I believe T-2 was built with support of west german engineers, and opened just prior to the 1980 Olympic Games, one of the reasons why it was built.

Hmm, I agree this will not be good for DME who were gradually encouraging foreign carriers to move across. However, if as said it is mostly for Aeroflot then foreign airlines will not be experiencing any huge change in standards at SVO. It really depends on how large the new terminal is and whether foreign airlines will be allowed in. But I wouldn't expect carriers already at DME such as BA and EK to start wanting to return.

Once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned forever skyward

Definetaly East German design and engineering for the T2 for the Olympics. West Germany was an enemy. Anyway, I just read in today's Moscow times that the tender holders of T1 and T2 want to block construction as they think an integrated approach should be made. I forsee nothing being done for years to come while everyone sits around and says how bad the situation is....
