Moscow Gains Fourth Airport

Moscow Gains Fourth Airport
Ryan Boyd

Zhukovsky International Airport (ICAO: UUBW), formerly Ramenskoye Airport, officially opened in Moscow May 30, becoming the fourth international airport to offer service in the Moscow region. The airport’s first flight is scheduled for June 20 and will be performed by Kyrgyzstan carrier Air Kyrgyzstan. A new 15,000 square meter terminal capable of serving four million annual passengers was officially opened during a ceremony on May 30. The new airport was introduced due to increasing numbers of Moscow passengers and overcrowding at Moscow’s three existing airports, Sheremetyevo International Airport (SVO), Domodedovo International Airport (DME) and Vnukovo International Airport (VKO).
