Travel Notes

Sheremetyevo 3

This time they mean it! Aeroflot will definitely build a third terminal at Sheremetyevo Airport, the airline’s management announced in November. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2005, and will be completed in 2007, the Moscow Times reported. Aeroflot first announced its intention to build the new terminal in 2000, and to have it completed by the end of 2003. But infighting between the airport, the airline and various government bodies and officials halted the project soon after a February 2001 groundbreaking ceremony.

The new terminal is crucial to Aeroflot’s development. With a capacity to service eight million passengers per year, it would significantly ease congestion at the two existing terminals, while making Moscow a more attractive hub for transit flights between Asia and Europe.
