Austrian Airlines and SAS, Star Alliance members, can possibly start flying from Vnukovo said Russian newspaper 'Vedomosti' today. SWISS is also studying Vnukovo's offer.

Vitaliy Vantsev, co-owner of the Vnukovo airport, said about negotiations between VKO and Singapore Airlines in december.

It seems Star Alliance has some big plans about its presence in Vnukovo.

I think VKO can accommodate European or Middle East flights, but I can't imagine it operating long-haul flights. Anyway, it seems that only the question of time when Utair will join the Star Alliance.

Exactly.


TransAero is also looking into it. However they are a big player in the charter/vacational segment.

I don't think the move is that smart. VKO is surrounded that has no room to expand, but DME has plan which have up to 9 runways.

Forgive me for absence of a source but i have read that they are staying in SVO and increasing the amount of flights. DME will retain some flights as well. TransAero will serve all 3 Moscow airports. Obviously their expansion is restricted in all 3 yet they are able to achieve more with this model. They are more of a vacational/charter airline and they are not focusing on transfer pax that much at all. They are not Aeroflot.

Are you sure? I remember that VKO handled Il 86 of Atlant Soyuz. The A333 of Vladivostok Avia where handled too. Where should be a problem handling A/C like this?

I agree. For long term developement VKO has the worst possibillities. There may be enough space for Star Alliance, but not for much more.

I think terminal B can be enlarged ... I don't worry about terminal capacities, more about runway capacities. Two runways, both cross, no space for additional runways.

Actually, there is some space for third runway potentially: on the other side of Kievskoye shossee (M3).

It is a common practice to exceed that. Look at Heathrow for example.

Domodedovo Airport to Invest over 2 Billion Rubles in IT-projects


The presentation of Moscow Domodedovo Airport "Future Technologies: DME IT-projects", held February 1 at the Technology Centre "Digital October", started outside the box: journalists and bloggers were welcomed by a holographic image of Victor Ponomarenko, Chief Officer for Information Technologies, Moscow Domodedovo Airport. After changing the holographic counterpart, the speaker presented the most interesting IT-projects of the airport, some of which are unique not only in Russia but also in the world.

‘Today over 100 projects are under implementation at Domodedovo,’ - Victor Ponomarenko told the journalists. – ‘In 2011-2012, the airport’s total investment in IT infrastructure will be more than 2 billion rubles.’

Unconditional requirements for IT-projects of the airport are the innovation, reliability and customer focus. Thus, the project of digital video surveillance and video analytics is unique in the world in its technical features. The system includes 1,500 high-definition cameras and analyzes hundreds of scenarios, such as crossing the protected perimeter, detection of the belongings left or passengers crowding.

Smart Fence, another project, makes it possible to prevent undetected unauthorized entry in the airport’s airside. Smart Fence is equipped with motion and vibration sensors, CCTV cameras and infrared range detection system. Upon detection, the sensors transmit the signal on the screen of the operator indicating the place of violation, as well as providing video signals from the camera and thermal imager. The analytical system determines the degree of threat and generates further action.

In order to increase the fault-tolerance and disaster recovery of the airport’s IT-infrastructure a new data processing centre has been put in commission, two routing centres have been upgraded together with telecommunication facilities, which are responsible for data transmission. All these facilities are supplied by the first special category of power, which means connection of two power lines from independent substations operating on a standalone power source.

‘Such an architecture of the IT-infrastructure ensures the fail-free operation even in adverse conditions,’- said Victor Ponomarenko.

Information technology is one of the most important tools of the airport business. As the participants of the press conference could see, Domodedovo is using the most advanced technologies in its work and is implementing projects, some of which have no analogues in the world.

"Future Technologies: DME IT-projects" is a continuation of a series of presentations in which the largest airport in Russia and Europe is presenting Russian and foreign journalists and bloggers its development plans. For example, last year, journalists learned how important it is for Domodedovo and the whole Moscow Aviation Hub to export air transport services (July 2011), and in September they had an opportunity to get familiar the Domodedovo Aerotropolis.

Moscow Domodedovo Airport is the largest airport in Russia and Europe in terms of passenger traffic, according to the ACI classification. Following 2011, the airport has served 25.7 million people. Moscow Domodedovo Airport has been chosen for flights to Moscow by members of the world's leading aviation alliances - Star Alliance and oneworld. Since 2010, Moscow Domodedovo Airport has been on top of the list of the best airports in Eastern Europe in terms of the service quality, according to an annual survey by the independent research company Skytrax Research (UK).

I am sure there were probably not happy about sitting next to each if it would have happened a few years ago when Okulov was running Aeroflot.
