Located 18 miles (29 km) north-west of central Moscow, Sheremetyevo International Airport (SVO) is Russia’s second largest airport. In 2010 it handled over 19 million passengers.
With Terminals A-C on the northern side of the airport’s two runways, and Terminals D-F on the southern side, the airport spans a massive area and therefore requires travel time of up to 20 minutes between terminals. Various retail and duty free stores are scattered throughout all terminals, parking lots are conveniently located near to each terminal, and transport to and from the city is plentiful, and facilities are neat and tidy. Although chaotic at times, staff at Sheremetyevo International are generally friendly and airport processes efficient.
