Moscow Vnukovo Airport

Russia flag

Moscow Vnukovo Airport is located 28km southwest from Moscow and belongs among major Russian airports. It is the oldest Moscow’s airport opened for military purposes during the Second World War and has been reconstructed into a civilian facility after the war.

Vnukovo Airport handles around 20 million passengers a year, serving mostly to smaller or low-cost airlines on flights not only from/to post-Soviet Union countries or domestic flights but also welcomes flights from many European destinations, Middle-East, Dubai, Bangkok or China.

It is a hub to UTAir and Pobeda airlines.

There are spacious and comfortable waiting rooms, shops, food outlets or VIP Lounges available at the airport.

The most appealing might be direct flights (up to 4 hours journey) from London Luton with WizzAir with one of their deals (for instance £36 for a return ticket).

Other airlines only operate flights with atleast 1 layover and significantly longer journey times. In those cases you might consider flying to a different airport in Moscow.

The airport is open 24/7.

Moscow Vnukovo Airport Transit

You do not need a visa if you transit between 2 international flights booked on the same ticket and do not leave the transit zone (also with bags checked to the final destination). The airport is well sign-posted, however, leave an extra time of at least 1 hour to catch your connection flight (international->domestic).
