@ Maxi_Moscow: you can easily get from Moscow to Vilnius with Air Baltic for 170 EUR. From Moscow To Riga you can get flights with Transaero from 140 EUR. On Aeroflot, I paid less than with a normal Kupe in the train on flights to Barnaul and to Nizhniy, both times booked around 2 weeks before the flight.

Additionally, Avianova and Skyexpress offer a product similar to Easyjet and Ryanair which has consequences for the prices beeing offered by competing Airlines on the same destinations. A few years ago, it was normal to pay around 300 Euro for a return flight (one and half an hour) from Moscow to Nizhnekamsk on Tatarstan, now that Avianova, UTAir and Ak Bars Aero offer flights as well, it's pretty easy to get a return for around a hundred Euro.

Concluding, I guess you're doing something wrong in your booking procedure

Regarding the traffic numbers - it's not only the competition by the trains - societies in Russia or Japan and the States are not that easily comparable. Russians tend to travel less.

@ Dase

1. My booking for Vilnius always happens last minute and usually around major holidays. I have never came across anything cheaper than $400.00 which is absurd.

2. I am not denying the fact that Russians travel less. They travel less but they do travel and numbers are increasing.

Hahaha, are you kidding? But that is the answer, sorry but its everywhere the same, hot dates like public holidays + last minute tickets! I can add its an absurd to wait for good prices 2 days before the flight during major holidays. I am surprised that you are surprised with that.

And you can find UTair ticket from VKO to Vilnius RT for around 205 EUR 2 weeks before the flight, for the only existing direct flight i guess its a normal fare. For the same duration (1:40) you can fly to Helsinki for 150 - 200 EUR, and it doesnt surprise anyone..

Royal Jordanian Airlines - 5 years with Moscow’s Domodedovo airport

“Moscow - Amman is one of the most exclusive destinations of Domodedovo airport, which is in constant demand from passengers,” said Igor Borisov, director of Moscow’s Domodedovo airport. “During the period of our cooperation, we have become reliable partners to each other, maintaining the tradition of providing high quality service to our customers.”

“We are very appreciative of the level of services, which we have received at Domodedovo from the first day of our work,” said the General Representative of Royal Jordanian Airlines in Russia. According to Mr. Ibrahim Al Mahadina, during the five years of cooperation, Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport has made great progress and is changing right before our eyes. The airport has a good prospect of becoming the world's largest international hub.

Domodedovo Airport and Royal Jordanian Airlines, marking their five-year collaboration, greeted passengers of the anniversary flight with a noteworthy event. A festive mood was created for passengers at the start of their journey, thanks to souvenirs, champagne, and an anniversary cake with national symbols, along with check-in counters decorated with balloons.

Royal Jordanian is a member of the “oneworld” global alliance, with its Moscow base at the Domodedovo Airport. It actively cooperates with the Russian member of this alliance, S7 Airlines. The airlines fly from Domodedovo on a code-share agreement to the destinations of St. Petersburg and Amman.

SriLankan launches flights to Moscow



Establishing a landmark in Sri Lanka’s aviation history, SriLankan Airlines’ makes its maiden flight to the historic city of Moscow, commencing a twice-weekly scheduled service between Colombo’s Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) and Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport today.

SriLankan’s VIP delegation includes the Ambassador for Russia in Sri Lanka, Vladimir P Mikhaylov, SriLankan Airlines’ Head of Commercial Operations, Mohamad Fazeel, and Regional Manager for Russia/ Middle East & Africa, Lal Perera including other representatives of SriLankan Airlines. The flight is scheduled to operate via Dubai and arrive in Moscow at 1640hrs the same day. The UL 531 departs the BIA at 0720hrs.

Vladimir P. Mikhaylov said: “The new air services connecting Colombo and Moscow is a link that will not only facilitate travel but will be the impetus for building closer bilateral business connections as well as in social, cultural, sports and other spheres, better understanding of the historic heritage of the peoples of Sri Lanka and Russia”.

Upon arrival in Moscow, the SriLankan delegation was welcomed by Moscow’s Airport Authority Officials and the Sri Lankan community members in Moscow, who have waited eagerly for the commencement of this service.

“This is a significant air link for SriLankan Airlines as we connect to the largest country in the world also known as one of the greatest cultural and historic destinations. We are eagerly waiting to welcome the Russian visitors in Sri Lanka and passengers on board our flights to Russia” said the Head of Commercial Operations, Mohamad Fazeel.

Russia, with a population of 140 million, is thought to be a potentially lucrative market for Sri Lankan tourism. It is estimated that over 19 million Russians travel abroad every year with each tourist spending USD 2,200 on average.

“We have been promoting Sri Lanka as a destination to Russia for the last two years now. We believe that direct flights from Moscow have great potential and will contribute greatly to the country,” said Vipula Wanigasekara, Acting Director General, Tourism Development Authority.

Wanigasekara went on to say that at present, the island sees something like 13,000 Russian tourists into the country, which is expected to increase to about 20,000 over the next year.

Senaka Fernando, Senior Manager Planning, SriLankan Airlines said that the company plans to price itself competitively with regards to the direct flight from Moscow. According to Fernando, such pricing will likely drive other carriers to lower their own prices. Such a reduction in prices would likely result in more Russian tourists choosing to visit Sri Lanka.

Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport is Russia’s largest, in terms of passenger traffic and is reputed as the largest and the most promising Russian airport. The total passengers handled in 2010 amounts to 22,254,000 which is a 19.2% increase compared to 2009. Located 22 km southeast of Moscow, the Domodedovo Airport Terminal was the first passenger airport terminal in Russia to be certified under ISO 9001:2000. It is equipped with the world’s most advanced technology.

SriLankan’s new service will operate twice weekly, initially with flights on Wednesdays and Saturdays on a brand new state-of-the art Airbus aircraft, configured to business and economy classes with plush leather seating and personal TVs with Panasonic’s latest eFX Audio Video On Demand (AVOD) entertainment system.

True. However, i am always successful on finding a reasonable fair even on holidays on my most popular flight routes (L.A. - New York, L.A. - Moscow). I just can not see myself paying 300 euros for Moscow - Vilnius flight. I just dont accept it. Maybe Aeroflot should throw a SSJ on this route with reasonable price. Good price + proper P.R. = traffic and profit.

Moscow is attracting a lot lately and it should.

My favorite Sheremetyevo needs to catch up to Domodedovo.

For DME development till 2018 they plan to spend over 4 billons $ including new 3d runway, since 2001 for modernization already spent over 1 billion $. Regarding new terminal in VKO, it cost around 1,2 billion $, new terminal D at SVO had a long story and they were building it for quite long time due to finance problems, they planned to spend around 380-400 million $, but after completing it got out to be over 1 billion $ too, terminal E at SVO cost as far as i remember around 200-250 million $.

cubanito92, pictures 1,3 and 4 are in the left international wing of DME, currently this sector has low ceiling (arrival hall is under what you see on this pics), but after all will be done, arriving passengers will have this high spacy area. Picture 2 shows some corridor on the 3d floor along the terminal building, soon there gonna appear offices and shops. All in all DME terminal will be a 4 storey building after construction works end. As they say, it will happen in 2012.

Some more photos
