I had an opportunity to fly into DME
last December. It is a lot better in terms of comfort and efficiency than SVO
. Immigration and Customs took only about 10 min at DME
while I have waited in upwards to 1 hour at SVO
is a privately operated airport owned by the Eastline Group. Its very modern and connected to the city centre by rail. Its mostly Russian domestic and charters, but a lot of carriers fed up with the delays and inefficiencies of SVO
are moving there. As mentioned, both BA
relocated as well as more recenlty Air Malta and Vietnam Airlines.
Not much in the way of amenities though. A few shops, and only a couple of restuarants (Sbarro pizza, and a cafe). The atmoshpere is a lot better than SVO
. Its bright, open , airy, and welcoming. I have a feeling that as more leases end at SVO
more airlines will be moving there.
Not all who wander are lost....
