Air Astana has announced it will transfer its Moscow flights from Sheremetyevo airport to Terminal 1 at Domodedovo from 27 October.

The airline says the move will be made without any disruption to operations and affects its services to Moscow from Nur-Sultan and Almaty.

The transfer comes after Air Astana signed a codeshare agreement with S7 Airlines, with Domodedovo airport being the Russian carrier’s operational base in Moscow.

Domodedovo is situated south of the city and served 29.4 million passengers in 2018. It is also the Russian base airport for both Oneworld and Star Alliance. The airport operates as an “Under One Roof” hub, meaning international and domestic flights are operated within a single terminal, which Air Astana says saves time for passengers on connecting services.

The airport is connected to Moscow via a high-speed train service called the AeroExpress, which transfers passengers to the city centre in 40 minutes.

Air Astana will operate 11 weekly flights to Moscow from Nur-Sultan in its winter schedule and 14 from Almaty.
