Vnukovo Airport (VKO)

18 miles south of Moscow is the city's oldest operating airport, Vnukovo International Airport (VKO). Discover how to get to Moscow after landing!

Vnukovo Airport is one of Moscow's four major airports and the third busiest in Russia. While it services a number of international destinations, it is noticeably smaller than Sheremetyevo and Domodedovo. Despite having two runways, only one terminal is used for both domestic and international flights.

The bus is the cheapest option, although it does not reach the city centre directly and takes a lot longer than other options, so it is not our most recommended mode of transport.

Aeroexpress Train

The train runs between Sheremetyevo Airport and Kievskaya Station, which is on metro line 3 (blue line). From there, you can reach Red Square in less than 10 minutes by metro. The Aeroexpress operates between 6 am and midnight, takes 35 minutes and costs 420 RUB.


The journey from the airport to the centre takes between one and a half and two hours depending on traffic, and the estimated taxi fare varies from 1000 RUB booked in advance, to 2500 RUB from the official taxi desk in the airport.
