Terminal and Infrastructure
The Domodedova Airport officially opened to traffic in the 1960s, and has seen several upgrades since. Last decade, an expansion program was begun, designed to make approval for widebody aircraft operations possible. Approval for larger airplanes for instance the Airbus A380 was announced in March 2009 making it the first airport in Russia to be so approved.
Domodedova Airport currently has one terminal building with a concourse for domestic Flights and a separate concourse for international Flights. There are 22 jetways in total. Construction was begun to add new extensions alongside the current terminal. With this construction the overall size of the terminal is expected to increase. All concourses will stay connected and will improve the efficiency of airport and passenger connections by means of ICAO and IATA transfer technologies.
