Flights to Moscow

There are a number of airports in and around Moscow—many of them international—making travel by plane a flexible prospect. The Sheremetyevo International is the largest and closest to the centre of Moscow at 30km, while the modern Vnukovo offers an alternative destination farther south at a roughly the same distance. The busiest of these airports is the Domodedovo located in the southern regions of Moscow and 45km away from the centre. Most major airlines travel into Moscow from all over the globe, including British Airways, United, Brussels Airlines, Lufthansa, and Swiss. All of these airports feature express train links into Moscow proper, and in some cases a direct road route. Various road–going services are available, including taxis, car rental, and limo hire.

Arriving in Moscow

There are many landmarks to visit while in Moscow, from famous locations such as the Red Square, to historical points of interest, like Lenin's tomb. The city is rich with all the history you'd expect to find in a major European city. Beyond the sights, however, there is an active and vibrant culture to experience, including a good number of bars, shopping centres, nightclubs, and more. During the day there are galleries and historical monuments to visit, during the night there are shows such as ballet, and opera. The Bolshoi Theatre is a popular destination for those seeking a some cultured entertainment, and no visit to Moscow would be complete without a visit to the Kremlin; the home of the Russian President and an architectural feast for the eyes.

How to Get to Moscow by Plane

There are two main international airports which serve Moscow from the UK: Moscow Domodedovo Airport (also known as Domodedovo International Airport), approximately 45 km away from the city and Sheremetyevo International Airport, roughly 31 km away. Public transport is available to and from both airports. At Domodedovo, the Aeroexpress train travels between Paveletsky station and the airport, taking 40-50 minutes. Express buses and mini shuttle buses, between Domodedovskaya underground station and the airport, leave every 15 minutes and take 25-30 minutes. At Sheremetyevo, public buses stop at each terminal and go to various Moscow locations, taking between 30 and 50 minutes. UK flights depart from Manchester Airport, Gatwick Airport and Heathrow Airport. Airlines providing these flights include easyJet, Siberia Airlines, British Airways and Aeroflot.


As the capital of Russia, Moscow represents this huge country with a wide variety of sights, restaurants and fascinating buildings. Located in the west of Russia, it is not far to travel from the UK, but is seemingly a whole different world. Amongst the beautifully colourful and ornate architecture, the Kremlin and Red Square are must see destinations. The world famous Bolshoi theatre, home to ballet and opera, is another Moscow treat not to be missed. For shopaholics, Izmaylovo (or Vernisazh) market is a treasure trove of arts, crafts, jewellery and antiques; a great place to pick up some unique gifts. There are plenty of tours, river cruises and outdoor activities to take part in. Sanduny Baths is a stunning bathhouse which dates back to 1808, in which to relax and enjoy the ornate interior. Spa and beauty salon treatments are also available.
