Moscow has direct flight connection to major capital and cities worldwide. For example, there are 10 direct flights daily to London, Paris, and Frankfurt/Main each, four to New York, five to Barcelona.
Flight duration from major European cities lies in the range of 2-4 hours (from 2.5 hours to Berlin to 4 hours to London). Moscow has three international airports, with most flights operated to/from Sheremetyevo (SVO) to the north of the city and Domodedovo (DME) to the south. Sheremetyevo serves 58 carriers, operating 140 domestic and international direct destinations. Domodedovo serves 77 carriers. A number of low-cost airlines operate flights to Moscow, e.g. Brussels Airlines, TUIfly, Wind Jet, Meridiana, Germanwings, AirBerlin, AirBaltic, and Niki.
All three airports are connected with the city center via AeroExpress trains that run in 30 min. intervals and the journey takes from 35 to 45 minutes depending on the airport. If you need a taxi, we also recommend to book it via Aeroexpress taxi service.
The best means for transportation within the city is Moscow Metro. Moscow Metro has second-largest passenger throughput after Tokyo and is recognised as one of the city's landmarks due to the rich and varied architecture and decoration of its 182 stations.
