Anyone have any info on the new integrated terminal that is being built for Aeroflot's use at SVO (T3, I think it is being referred to)? Is this a completely new "greenfield" terminal? How large will it be? It is going to be in the same league as other new terminals worldwide in terms of design, facilities, passenger appeal, etc? (By other "new" terminals, I am referring to HKG, KUL, LHR T5, PVG, SIN T3, DTW Midfield, etc.) Will MOW and SVO finally be able to shed its image as being "not nice" airports to fly to/from and connect in, with this terminal?

As per http://www.svo3.ru/ru/B2B/news/index.php?id4=188 (Russian): The airport will have an experimental opening of the terminal, followed by limited operation in August and then it should open in October.

Although slated to open in 1993 (not a typo), it should take some of the heat off of the excrebale SVO-2, that while extremely atmospheric in its East German gloom and Soviet staircase smell, is extremely passenger unfriendly. Assuming that the planned physical passageway between the 2 and 3 is built (believe it when you see it), that should also facilitate connecting flights which previously required arduous journeys across to SVO-1 and SVO-C. There were still be an acute visa problem for nearly everyone and hopefully the same staff won't be working at the new terminal. SVO-3 is indeed a green field project. In fact many of the years the the new terminal was slated to open, the site was still forested!

SVO 3 is well underway. Main terminal construction has been completed and terminal testing has already begun. Entry into service is slated for the period from the End of the Summer to October. This will be a reality if no problems will be discovered.
SVO is in complete overhaul, and terminals will most likely all be renames into Alphabetical order: A, B, C, D, E, possible F in the future. Two huge wings on both sides of SVO-2 are being constructed for further capacity.

A great place to monitor progress is aviaforum.ru

Below are a few pics from construction.

Already half-way built. Look at online photos.

Definitely not forested now. Terminal already standing and being fully tested.

Those are from 2 months ago, construction is non-stop out there right now.

Looks like it is well along, thanks for the pics Aeroflot777. I was being a bit cheeky of course, but I do remember well the constant announcements that opening was just around the corner, and clearly noticing flying in and out that construction hadn't started. Why the need to pretend existed, I can only surmise (though an airline/airport failing to deliver on promises is hardly a Russian phenomenon), but anyway, glad to see it looks like it will be a handsome building!
