Who's Left At SVO2?

Mon Sep 17, 2007 7:17 pm

As many know, SVO2 has been bleeding foreign carriers to DME, in spite of the fact that a new state of the art terminal is under construction at SVO, and SVO2 itself will undergo major upgrades. Latest to leave are both Lufthansa and Japan Airlines. Surprisingly, China Shouthern opted for SVO2 when it begins its new services in 2008. According to my best guesses, the following foreign cariers are all that is left at SVO (many with less than daily services)

Air Algerie (1x weekly)
Air China
Air France
airBaltic
Air Malta (1x weekly)
Alitalia
Ariana Afghan (1x weekly)
Belavia
Bulgaria Air
Czech-CSA
Cyprus (3x weekly, reduced during winter)
Delta
Estonian
Finnair
FlyLAL
Iran Air (2x weekly)
JAT
KLM
Korean Air (3x weekly)
LOT
Malev
MIAT (2x weekly)
Olympic
SAS
Syrian Arab (2x weekly)
Turkish
Uzbekistan


That's 28 carriers of which 8 operate three times a week for less.

A few questions:
Are any other airlines scheduled to relocate to DME? Other Star Alliance carriers perhaps?
Are any carriers expected to relocate back to SVO once all upgrades have been completed?
Has the decline in international traffic effected SVO economically? ie, job losses, lost revenue to pay for construction and upgrades?
Not all who wander are lost....

They will probably code-share connection filghts to CIS countries and Russia through SVO1 and European connections using Aeroflots network through SVO2. CZ is about to become Skyteam member, thus using SVO2 makes sense.

Probably not SK as they codeshare their routes with SU, making more frequent service possible without using own metal (which they are pretty short of as we speak  Smile)
Last flight: SAW-CPH on H9 on 02/11/09 - Next Flights: 23/12/09 CPH-AAL on QI, 30/12/09 CPH-LHR on SK, 19/01/10 CPH-CDG-

But SK is Star Alliance  Smile, I'm hoping they join their partners @ Domodedovo. I think LO is still saying at SVO for the same reason, thanks to a codeshare on SVO-WAW

What now?

You forgot SU, the anchor tenant. Will move to new terminal when completed.

SVO has had some touch-ups, most recently, they reclaimed part of the vehicle concourse on arrivals and departure levels for additional space. When I last saw it in July 07, the area was finished.

Some of the ghastly copper ceiling has been removed. I guess that's all the money they had. Unfortunately, none left for airport staff attitude readjustments! Or toilet paper....
