Sheremetyevo International Airport
The Sheremetyevo International Airport was opened in 1960 and has been the main international airport ever since. However, growing competition from the new Domodedovo airport built in 2000, a major renovation has been done at the cost of $87 mln for Terminal C and Terminal D. The Terminal-2, now known as Terminal F, is still functioning but under major reconstruction which is to be completed by the end of 2010. The current airport capacity is 5 million people a year, and after the reconstruction will be completed this figure will rise up to 40 million people a year.
Ten kilometres (10km) away from Moscow on the Leningradskoye highway, the Sheremetyevo International Airport is relatively close to Moscow. However, the often jammed highway is a constant headache for travellers arriving, sometimes too late to catch their flight, by car.
There is direct railway communication between the Belorussky Railway Station and the Sheremetyevo International Airport. On their way to Sheremetyevo, trains make a stop at the Savelovsky Railway Station. Trains going from the airport do not make this stop.
