I don't understand why Terminal C was built at the north side of the runways. Wouldn't it have been better to move all passenger movements to the south? There is much space next to Terminal F that can be used for it. The Airport wouldn't need buses or people mover ...

I read that Terminal B shall be used for domestic services by Vladivostok Avia.

Terminal C is used for Charter Services and "special" flights like Ariana Afghan. Why wasting space in the south for that?

@dase:
It think in the opposite way: Image terminal C was build on the south side and connected to the other terminals. Capacities could be better used by the major airlines. Running an empty or poor used terminal costs money too, same with the bus service or the future people mover.
Space at the north could be used for future cargo activities, general aviation and, if needed, a new maintenance area.

BTW: See you at the airlines.de board

British Airways to upgrade service on Moscow route

BA will operate a four-class B747 jumbo on one of its three daily flights between London and Moscow from next April.

The carrier currently uses a mixture of two-class B767 and A320 aircraft on the four-hour route, fitted with BA’s Euro Traveller and Club Europe product.

But from next April the carrier will introduce one of its four-class B747 jumbo aircraft on to the route, offering increased capacity and more comfortable World Traveller, World Traveller Plus, Club World and First seating.

Schedules have not yet been finalised so it’s not clear whether the jumbo will feature on the morning, lunchtime or evening flight from London Heathrow. The two other daily flights will be operated by B767 aircraft.

As well as offering point-to-point customers an upgraded service on the London-Moscow route, BA will hope to encourage more Russian passengers to connect in London onto transatlantic flights using the new B747 service.

BA already uses aircraft fitted with long-haul seating to serve routes of a comparable length to the London-Moscow flights, including Tel Aviv and Cairo, both of which have a flight time of around four hours forty minutes and are operated with B777 aircraft.

Earlier this year BA and fellow Oneworld member S7 Airlines commenced a codeshare agreement on BA’s flights between London and Moscow, and selected S7 routes from the Russian capital.

BA also changes flight numbers to/from Moscow:

LHR-DME-LHR

872/873 => 233/234
874/875 => 235/236
880/881 => 237/238

more:

British Airways has announced it will introduce its First and Club World classes on flights to Moscow next year. The airline announced the changes during the UK trade delegation in Russia, which is being led by Prime Minister David Cameron. In the announcement the carrier said it will be the first airline to offer premium class options to flights from Heathrow to Moscow. The new options will be available in April next year. “It [Russia] is an important and growing market for us and we want to reflect our commitment to the region and our customers by enhancing our services and increasing the number of seats that are available to Moscow,” said Sir Martin Broughton, chairman of BA.

The airline’s fleet has 88 modern aircrafts, including 25 long-haul A330-300s and A340-300. The rest ones are the medium-and short-haul aircrafts, such as A320 Sun (A319, A320, A321) and Avro RJ 100.

Moscow Domodedovo Airport is the largest airport in Russia. Over 10 years, passenger traffic has increased almost 10-fold, from 2.8 million passengers in 2000 to 22.3 million passengers in 2010. Moscow Domodedovo Airport has been chosen for flights to Moscow by members of the world's leading aviation alliances: Star Alliance, Oneworld.

From Wikipedia:

Operators like to stress the fact that, due to its location 28 kilometres (17 mi) southwest from the centre of Moscow, the flying time for Western airlines is 10 to 20 minutes shorter than to the other Moscow airports, Sheremetyevo and Domodedovo. Thus each aircraft flying from Vnukovo will burn less fuel.

Of the three Moscow airports, Vnukovo is the highest (204m above sea level) and hence in case of fog it has frequently served as an alternative airport

I think its a part of a strategy regarding Moscow, Vnukovo now has new big terminal and i think Lufthansa got very good bonuses to start flying there. Also there are rumors that UTair will start talks to join StarAlliance, so i think its also because of that, they will try to make more flights to Moscow VKO in future, UTair will bring passengers from other russian cities for LH flights. Transfer options in VKO are good now so i think that is the reason. In total for the summer period LH has daily 5 flights to Moscow DME and 2 flights to Moscow VKO from Frankfurt. I just checked new schedule and departing from VKO is a great option, i will use it when i need, morning flight to FRA is very convenient in term of transferring in FRA.

Great news! VKO is fairly empty and therefore very comfortable for passengers.

I think UTair in the Star Alliance is a good idea, the Star Alliance can benefit from UTs good network to russian cities, unlike all other major carriers they have a good regional network too.

Any Idea when international flights will move to terminal A?
What shall happen with the old domestic terminal?

C-Falke, regarding international flights that will move to terminal A, all flights will be moved, when international sector will be opened

Old domestic terminal will be demolished, so that second phase (left wing) of Terminal A could be built. Currently if you look at facade you will see that its asymmetrical, but now all domestic flights are moved to T-A, so soon they will demolish old building.

Here how it looks like and what i meant:

Okay, then I hope that the international sector of Terminal A will be finished soon, in July and August there was a lot of work left to be done. So I am looking forward that A and B will be connected.

Unfortunately Germanwings lost its Moscow-Berlin route, it was taken by LH, so from next summer there will be 2 daily LH BER-VKO and no 4U service anymore ) Anyway i am very glad that LH will start VKO flights!

I am not really sad about the replacement of germanwings, I prefer Lufthansa. LH is offering special prices for the Berlin route, in competition to the home carrier Air Berlin.
