Air Astana to Change Airports in Moscow, Russia

Air Astana has confirmed that it will transfer flight operations from Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport to Domodedovo Airport (Terminal 1) with effect from 27 October 2019.

The transfer of flights will be carried out without any interruption to the airline’s schedule.

This change of airport is for services from both Nur-Sultan (formerly known as Astana) which has 11 weekly services in winter, and Almaty which has 14 weekly services in winter.

The change of airport in Russia’s capital is linked to the recent signing of a codeshare agreement with S7 Airlines, with Domodedovo Airportbeing the Russian carrier’s operational base in Moscow.

Moscow Domodedovo Airport, situated to the south of the city, served 29.4 million passengers in 2018. It’s the base airport for the largest global airline alliances, OneWorld and Star Alliance, with 50 scheduled airlines operating to 202 destinations.

Moscow Domodedovo Airport has a terminal area of 190,000 m2, offers over 140 shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, and provides free WiFi via 60 access points in the terminal.

 The “Under One Roof” concept means that international and domestic flights are operated within a single terminal. This improves the transfer potential of the airport, whilst saving time and providing convenience for passengers on the move.

The airport is connected to Moscow city centre by way of a modern and comfortable high-speed train service (AeroExpress), which transfers passengers straight to the heart of Moscow (Paveletskaya station) in just 40 minutes.

Air Astana launched flights from Almaty and Nur-Sultan (Astana) to Moscow in September 2002. Since that date, the airline has carried over 3.5 million passengers and more than 26 thousand tons of cargo on the routes.

 Air Astana currently operates 12 weekly flights on the Nur-Sultan-Moscow-Nur-Sultan route and 16 flights on the Almaty-Moscow-Almaty route (summer schedule).
