Domodedovo International Airport is one of three airports serving Moscow, along with Sheremetyevo and Vnukovo Airport. Domodedovo is with over 30 million passengers a year the second busiest airport in Russia.
The airport opened in 1965 and was build mostly to handle domestic long-distance travel within the Soviet Union. After the collapse of the Union the airport was party privatized and is still the only private airport of Moscow. The new owners invested a lot in new terminals, improved facilities and floor space attracting many foreign airlines, causing a growth of 3 to 22 million passengers in ten years time and making Domodedovo one of the busiest airports in the country.

Domodedovo Airport is located about 45 km southeast of Moscow.
Domodedovo Airport has its own railway station making by train the quickest way to get into central Moscow.
