Pretty impressive new stations in Russia. I am referring in particular to "Gagarinskaya" in Novosibirsk and Vnukovo International Airport rail station. But others look very good too.

I think you left out the SVX aeroexpress.

And the train to LED is a fiction, right? Have they actually started building it?

"Aeroexpress" is the same brand as champagne or cognac. These words are widely used. But it's more accurately to name "Aeroexpress" only trains, which are operated by "Aeroexpress Ltd." company. Express train to SVX airport in Yekaterinburg is not belong to "Aeroexpress Ltd.", but also known as "aeroexpress" among residents.

Anyway, I will write about this express train. Not because I like this service, but because I like the infrastructure of Yekaterinburg in general (SVX is one of the modern and most comfortable airports in Russia, it's Russia's 5th busiest airport after three in Moscow and Pulkovo Airport (LED) in St. Petersburg). Perhaps, Yekaterinburg will host matches of FIFA World Cup 2018, and "Aeroexpress" will be expanded at this market.

Why do you so think? Now they build new terminal and improved of the transportation to the city is a logical variant. There are two projects of transportation - aeroexpress to the Baltic Rail Terminal and fast tram (which also known as Nadzemny Express) to the Moskovsky Rail Terminal. RZD (Russian Railways) is ready to funding construction of Aeroexpress (may be, VTB Bank also will doing it). What about Nadzemny Express (fast tram), they are presented the project of line (according to opinion of St. Petersburg forumers, this is bad variant).

Regarding the Moscow Aeroexpress plans: is it realistic at all to expect the new Moscow-City and rebuilt Kalanchyovsky Rail terminals to be actually in service until 2015? I have not seen a single actual rendering for those projects and considering the size (especially of the latter), I'd guess building works should begin soon. Two other questions: first, is it really planned to expand the Aeroexpress to Terminal D in SVO? What's the sense in that? Second, wasn't Moscow-City Terminal supposed to receive trains from all three airports as well and not just an extension of the SVO line?

Maybe, not in 2015, but in 2016-2018. This is an expensive project, so it's necessary to have money for its realization.

I'm very hope that they will not destroy pavilion of Kalanchyovskaya station, just build a new building for the terminal. This pavilion was built in 1896 specifically for the arrival of Russian Emperor Nicholas II in Moscow for his coronation (although finally this route was changed, and Imperial train arrived at Belorussky Rail Terminal).

The construction of Transport Terminal in IBC was been started few years ago, but it was stopped due to financial crisis. Now the work was resumed, currently they working in foundation pit.

They plan to build communication (passage) between Aeroexpress station (see previous page) and Terminal D.

No, only from Sheremetyevo and Vnukovo, but not from Domodedovo. This terminal planned to be built for the workers of IBC, but not for all citizens. Transport Terminal will include a hotel, office towers, taxi-stops, points of rental cars, Metro station, Aeroexpress station, bus station to communicate with the nearest Third Ring Road, etc.

Kalanchevsky terminal is needed for people who use Moscow as a transit city for travel from one city to another. Firstly, it will provide a link between Moscow airports (which are located in different parts of the Moscow Region). Secondly, it will be located at the Komsomolskaya Square, which known among Muscovites as "Square of Three Rail Terminals".

There are located:
- Leningradsky Rail Terminal (serves north-western directions, notably Saint Petersburg, Estonia and Finland);
- Yaroslavsky Rail Terminal (serves eastern destinations, including the Russian Far East via Trans-Siberian Railway);
- Kazansky Rail Terminal (serves directions to Kazan, Yekaterinburg, Ryazan and post-Soviet Central Asian states).

Thus, Kalanchevsky Terminal will provide not only connection between Moscow airports, but also between the airports and the major Moscow rail terminals.

Are there really that many people changing flights between the 3 airports? This investment in a centralized aeroexpress terminal might not be worth the money. It seems the current system of 3 downtown aeroexpress terminals, one for each airport, is working well enough.

@ AlekseyVT: thanks for all the answers. I was under the impression that Moscow City was supposed to serve the weat and the Kalanchyovsky terminal the east, so thanks for clearing up the different purpose. The renders for Moscow City look like artist renditions and not like true planning, though

But this is already in existance since last year. You can walk directly from Aeroexpress to Terminal E and continue to terminal D without leaving the building. I am using it every month Or is there anything else planned?

@ Woonsocket54: In Germany we have a saying that goes like: "The better is the worst enemy of the good" VKO and DME continue to be better connected to most parts of Russia than SVO, so there definitely is a need. This will only grow if current rumours come true that because of the forseeable capacity constraints of SVO, Aeroflot might start to fly from DME again in the future. While the current transfer is already pretty straightforward, changing to the metro with lugagge is still a hassle. A central transfer point for all three lines would eliminate that. The added value of Komsomolskaya being connected to many russian cities by trainis of course welcome.

Thank you for comment. However, the word "new" is relatively in this case. Station in Vnukovo was built six years ago and "Gagarinskaya" was opened in 1992. So it looked before the renovation, devoted to 50-anniversary of Yury Gagarin's spaceflight (for comparison):

Really? With moving walkways? Sorry, I did not know about it.

So, in this case it's need simply to read it as "Aeroexpress plans to connect IBC and SVO".
