One year on: Domodedovo probe complete

24 January, 2012



A year after the deadly Domodedovo attack, the investigation into the tragedy is complete, with four men charged. 37 people were killed and 173 injured in the blast carried out by a suicide bomber in the Moscow airport arrivals hall.

Russia’s Investigative Committee (IC) has announced the four people charged are members of the organized criminal group Caucasus Emirate – they are brothers Islam and Ilez Yandiyev, Ahmed Yevloyev and Bashir Khamkhoyev.
The Yandiyev brothers are said to have driven suicide bomber Magomed Yevloyev, 20, to Domodedovo airport. Magomed’s brother Ahmed helped him prepare, and dropped him off en route to Moscow. Magomed traveled the rest of the way by bus. Ahmed deliberately checked that none of his relatives or friends would be on board, for fear Magomed might change his mind about the suicide mission after talking to them. Khamkhoyev helped with Magomed’s training, and sent people to meet him when Magomed arrived in Moscow from Ingushetia.

The final indictment will be presented as soon as the defendants and their attorneys, as well as those affected by the attack have studied the case material, official IC spokesman Vladimir Markin says.

The attack took place on January 24, 2011, at 16:30 Moscow time, in the international arrival zone at Domodedovo airport. Yevloyev set off a homemade explosive device on his belt, equivalent to 2 – 3 kilograms of TNT, and stuffed with small metal particles and shrapnel. The explosion killed 37 and injured 173 Russian and foreign citizens.
Witnesses recall their shock and horror in the first minutes of trying to deal with the tragedy and help the injured.

Alex, from a car hire company, was in the arrival hall at the time of explosion and later helped to evacuate the wounded on luggage carts.“One of them was missing part of his leg, another part of his hand. But the most terrible thing at that moment was how quiet it became. Only those who were trying to find their loved ones were screaming," he recalls.
Another witness, businessman Oleg Konovalov, was saved by his friend’s intuition. The friend suggested they step back from the arrivals and departures board – just minutes before the blast.

"He said ‘Let’s move away to the wall, there are too many people here,” says Oleg. Minutes later “a man wearing a dark jacket and cap rushed in, pushing everyone out of the way. Then the room was alight with a bright flash, and we heard a muffled clap."

The attack was followed by an increase in security levels at all transportation hubs across the country. At Domodedovo itself, a complete security check has been introduced for those entering the airport, the number of officers working with sniffer-dogs has been doubled, and the airport’s police force has been increased by one third.

TransAero is moving to Vnukovo while retaining minority of flights from DME and SVO.

DME doesnt come up with the Transaero's expansion plans. Especially with long-haul fleet B747 and B777.

As well all know DME is for sale. Asking price for the entire lot is $5.5 bil. Highest bid is at $3.5. People who are trying to buy are co-owners (or just people who are in the picture) of Vnukovo. They offered "better" conditions for TransAero". Obviously DME is loosing in price after loosing a lot of Lufthansa, TransAero and all of Turkish traffic. VKO benefits from it as a potential buyer. Cost of fuel, airport charges are primary expenses for airlines and VKO offered lower prices than DME. Simple math.

Vnukovo is now spacious and very nice airport. Lufthansa jumped in it.


TransAero was in talks about joining Star Alliance with BMI/Lufthansa and seems like VKO will become a Star Alliance hub with Turkish coming in addition to Lufthansa.

DME is totally full. It just can't hold more flights while it's expanding has been delayed for several years. At the same time the huge and empty VKO proposes extremely lovely nice conditions hardly to refuse.

But anyway Transaero will not move all flights to VKO, in my opinion they will try to open more domestic flights from VKO to suggest cooperation to LH. Although LH has Utair now, but seems like Transaero would like to compete now, i think they will leave all international long- haul flights in DME and short and mid- haul in VKO. And of course Vnukovo is not enough to serve their amount of 747&777, around 30 wide body jets they have now.

As for me, VKO is ideal for european flights, plus travel time is around 15 min less, than other airports.

Here is VKO Terminal A map, right side will be international and left side will be domestic

Good that it will be not divided in 2 parts totally, 3 storey main square with cafes and shops at the end of a gallery will be accomodated in international part, it can be seen here.

The only thing i can not find the answer for is will UN leave existing flights at SVO or not? I think they will as Aeroflot is trying to kick everyone out of SVO except for SkyTeam members.

I think UN will continue from SVO too, because they told about it as a strategy, to use all 3 city airports. And they dont disturb Aeroflot, UN flights from SVO are actually charter flights to Asia and India, so i think they will stay in SVO. And Aeroflot is not the owner of Sheremetyevo, they cant decide whether airlines will use SVO or not )

True but you are missing one thing. Aeroflot is without a doubt a major player in SVO and their wishes will always be considered and for the most part fulfilled. Aeroflot is jammed in SVO.

Right but airports fees are paid not per flight but per passenger and it takes a lot of people to fill up jumbos. TransAero does transport a lot of people from/to SVO.
