Domodedovo Airport: Opening the World to the World for 50 years

06.04.2012

April 7, 2012, the largest aviation harbour of Russia - Moscow Domodedovo Airport – celebrates its 50th anniversary. For the airport, 50 years is the time to confidently look forward to the future, to which the airport brings thousands of people every day, linking cities, time zones, and continents.

Any History always Begins in 50 Years

Everyone has its own vision of Domodedovo Airport. Over half-a-century history, it has become an air bridge for 463 million people. Its history is woven from opening the first flights of new airlines, from the joy of meeting and light sadness, from parting short, expectations, anticipations, and polyphony of casual talks.

Over 50 years, Domodedovo Airport has opened skies for millions of passengers, including theater and film stars, famous public and cultural figures, and winners of prestigious sporting events.

Domodedovo’s history is inextricably linked with the succession of generations. For five decades, three generations of professionals has been working here and growing in their career, and for many of them the work at the airport has become a tradition. Now Domodedovo is employing over 13,000 people. And if we add to them airline personnel, government organizations and commercial companies, the total number of people working at the airport will be 30,000 people.

Even those who have never traveled by air and have never worked at the airport, know Domodedovo for its “appearances” on the big screen. “Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath”, “Adventures of Yellow Suitcase”, “Conductor” and other well-known films - Domodedovo has become a real favorite of renowned filmmakers and the audience.

Science Today is Technology Tomorrow

The airport is a living organism, the circulatory system of which is regularly regenerated with fresh ideas, accelerating technological progress and innovative technical solutions. Historically, Moscow Domodedovo Airport has assumed a pioneering role from the very beginning. It has become a testing ground for the pride of the Soviet Civil Aviation. The “long range” IL-62 and supersonic civil aircraft Tu-144 has carried out their first flights here. In modern history, Domodedovo has become the first airport in Russia, which has been certified to accept and has accepted the largest civil airliner in the world, Airbus A380.

In the post-Soviet period Domodedovo has always adhered to the innovation policy. It was here for the first time in the domestic practice, where the third category lighting equipment, according to the ICAO classification has been installed. Today, Domodedovo is implementing a project for the introduction of Advanced Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS), which is unique for Russia. The system will identify and locate moving objects at any weather condition and give this information to the controller. In 2012, the airport will also fully upgrade its digital high-definition video surveillance system. And if it will have no analogues in Russia in terms of the technical characteristics and the number of video channels (over 1500), its level and volume of analytics has no analogues in the whole world.

Domodedovo Airport is not only going with the material trends, but with virtual trends as well. The entire passenger terminal is a Wi-Fi coverage area. Thanks to this, it takes merely one touch of a finger to download the DME Live free application, created specifically for the breakthrough product of Steve Jobs, the iPad tablet. Having downloaded the DME Live game anyone can have a look at the opposite, not less interesting, side of the life of the largest airport in Russia from the airport staff’s angle.

Despite the fact that Domodedovo is the youngest airport in Moscow, it has always been a testing ground for innovative solutions, and this has fostered its leadership qualities and predestined superiority not only in the Moscow aviation hub and Russia, but also in Eastern Europe.

Work to Stay Young

Domodedovo is not only the largest aviation harbour of the country, but also the first private-run airport. In 2011, it served 25.7 million passengers, reaching not only its historic highs, but beating the record among all the air gates of Russia. This allowed Domodedovo enter the Big League of the largest airports in Europe, according to Airports Council International (ACI). Domodedovo serves 70,000 people daily, and more than 100,000 people in the summer season. Its throughput makes it possible to send and receive up to 90 aircraft per hour. According to this index, Domodedovo has no analogues among other Russian airports.

According to Skytrax, for several years in a row, Moscow Domodedovo Airport has been heading the top three airports in Eastern Europe in terms of the quality of the passenger service. Millions of passengers have given the airport the highest rates on 40 parameters. It is for the fifth year already, Domodedovo has been leading in the “Best Russian Airport” nomination of the “Travel.ru Star” award. In 2012, it won the most votes among the 18 applicant airports nominated for the award by tourists and travelers.

The potential for further development includes the reserved land, which eventually open up the possibility for the construction of nine runways. The area of ​​the passenger terminal, which is one of the main priorities in the possible formation of a hub, is 9,550 ha. Just to compare, it is almost 3 times the size of Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, and 5 times the size of the Frankfurt hub. By 2020, the area of ​​the single terminal will increase 9 times, compared with the current one, and on the basis of the airport and surrounding areas, it is planned to create the Aerotropolis, an aviation conglomerate of the future.

Hero of the Day

By April 7, Domodedovo Airport has prepared pleasant surprises to its passengers and guests. Commemorative flags will be ran up at the landside, arrival and departure halls will be decorated with balloons, and the airport’s visitors will have welcome refreshments and other surprises.

The fiftieth anniversary of the youngest and the first private airport in Russia is a momentous event not only for Domodedovo Airport, but for the entire aviation industry. Its development plans coincide with the modernization processes of Moscow and Russia, and its potential makes it possible for the airport to become the biggest hub in the world.

I'm coming this Saturday!

Is the passport control in Sheremetyevo terminal F as bad as the stories I've been reading? They say it can take up to 2 hours just to get through during peak periods. I'm just hoping 6pm isn't peak period for that terminal.

Thanks for that. I'm considering paying to use the fast track service, though $85USD seems steep.
