Also found that information on the VKO site kind of hidden in the press area without any reference as to what this step means to VKO. Do you know if there is an official new date for the opening of the entire terminal and movement of most flights there? As far as I understand, it was oriinally to be fully operational by mid 2010?

Well, true.. Boarding gallery isnt yet finished fully, so only a half is functioning, it was a soft opening in summer 2010. Problems are with all infrastructure around the building, because all works for renovation of airfield right around the terminal are supposed to be financed by state, but it was late, from here we have all problems and delays. Boarding bridges are not working because of that. But i really hope works will continue faster, because new terminal is really good and spacy. Although its mostly charter, lowcost and domestic flights airport, i still hope that after costruction will be finished it will turn into a good airport for international regular flights aswell. Today VKO had its 9 million passenger in 2010, so we see a growth. DME is expecting 22 million, SVO - 18 million passengers. In total Moscow is expecting to serve around 49 million people in 2010, its a goo growth.

From my point of view VKO should be an interesting airport for foreign network carriers, UTair has a good domestic and CIS network, they serve routes nobody else does.
But it has to be finished.
Well, their fleet is growing, perhaps they plan to launch international routes into the EU.

^ Correct, VKO has only few connections to the EU, most notably the Germanwings connections to Berlin, Cologne, Hannover and Stuttgart. Other EU routes go 'new' memberstates, like Brno and Riga. Being from Berlin, I always liked the fact that I could choose between SVO, VKO and DME for CIS connections. I am sure that the new Terminal will help to attract additional carriers, especially with a better layout than the old new terminal (checkin -> passport -> shops -> security -> nothing). However, I think that VKO will continue to be more attractive to budget than network airlines. SVO and DME offer the main CIS routes but international connections as well.

I just landed in SVO from JFK and it used Terminal D. So whatever problem there was, it's solved now. I did, however, walk all the way to Terminal F for free WiFi. The only bad thing is that I can't find a power outlet. I should've charged the battery!

Aeroflot to buy 16 Boeing 777 jets

Aeroflot, Russia's flagship airline, said Thursday it plans to buy 16 long-range aircraft from US aerospace giant Boeing in a deal reportedly worth some five billion dollars.

According to a preliminary agreement, state-run Aeroflot will buy eight B777-200ER and eight B777-300ER planes for delivery between 2012 and 2017, a spokeswoman for the company told AFP.

Aeroflot may also purchase four B787 Dreamliners to fly passengers to Russia for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games that Moscow is preparing to host in the Black Sea resort of Sochi.

The company did not give a value for the deal but a report in the Vedomosti financial daily said it could be worth nearly five billion dollars.

Aeroflot is also waiting for delivery of additional 10 new Airbus 330-300 starting 2011, 22 B787 Dreamliners starting 2016, 22 Airbus 350 XWB also starting 2016, but now Aeroflot is negotiating with Boeing to deliver 4 B787 before Winter Olympics in Sochi in 2014. At the moment Aeroflot has 100 planes, mostly A320 family, A330 and B767.

What's the point of buying Boeing if they have already "specialized" themselves in the Airbus - fleet? I guess this only means a lot of extra costs with almost no extra benefit.

ErFrt, they didnt specialized themselves to Airbus for a long haul product, 22 B787 Dreamliners were ordered before, and these new 777 will fill a growing demand until 787 will arrive. Many airliners use mixed fleet, Emirates, Qatar, Cathay, i dont think they have same problem?

They did. They bought a number of A-330 in adition to the already huge A-320 family they have. A-Planes are highly unified, so there is (or was) clear spezialisation pattern by Aeroflot until now.

This was a private intiative of one of the stock-owners, as far as I know, who went hysteric because of the whole "should we order A350 or B787" story. Doesn't it?

There are mostly political reasons behind those decisions, i guess. Are there any fundamental reasons to want to diversify at a pretty huge cost? I'm not sure. Anyway, with a fairly small extension of long-haul routes it makes even less sense for Aeroflot. To be consistent they should have started by diversifying the short-haul fleet, which is much more important to them. But they don't. So this really makes no sense.

Yes, it's true that they initially skewed towards an Airbus fleet but like China, it's very easy to come up with some easy conspiracy theory or political reason behind any decision.

The real reason, however, can be summed up in one word - competition, or rather, Transaero. Aeroflot is finding that on routes that it competes, Transaero is flying much larger aircraft; this is already a loss to SU in terms of passenger seats.

In the first picture,the current longer runway(3800m) will not continue to be there,the new runway in red is in a different position.It moves up a little.I suppose this is a big work,I wonder if it will happen.
