Moscow Domodedovo Airport is starting to build the second segment of the airport complex, which will increase the capacity of the passenger terminal and enhance the service level.
The airport has concluded a contract for construction of the second segment of the passenger terminal; its deadline is December 2016. Upon completion of the works
the airport complex area will be broadened nearly double by 235,000 square meters and, taking into account the ongoing project aimed at expanding the first segment of the passenger terminal, will make up to 500,000 square meters.
The project for expanding the passenger terminal area of Moscow Domodedovo Airport is being implemented taking into account the existing architectural concept of the terminal, which is designed on the principle UNDER ONE ROOF: a single terminal allows to make the best use of transfer opportunities of the airport complex. New terminal facilities will be put into operation in the eastern part of the passenger terminal.
This project opens up new service opportunities for guests of the air hub. The new segment of the Moscow Domodedovo Airport passenger terminal will include about 100 check-in counters and more than 40 self-service check-in kiosks. It is also planned to furnish the facility with additional aircraft parking stands meant for boarding bridges, including for passenger superliners such as Airbus 380.
Moscow Domodedovo Airport passenger terminal is the largest facility in Russia made with glass on polygonal structure: the facade of the building is an expressive aesthetic solution followed in the new segment of the terminal. The architectural look of the passenger terminal, familiar to millions of travelers around the world, takes on new features. One of such specific features will be an atrium in the controlled area: a round part of the gallery with a glass dome with business lounges, different cafés, bars, restaurants and duty-free shops along the perimeter.
Moscow Domodedovo Airport is the largest air hub in Russia, and in 2013, its total passenger traffic amounted 30.76 million people. It is the best airport in Russia and the CIS as rated by Skytrax. Domodedovo is the base airport in Moscow for member airlines of the largest global airline alliances – Star Alliance and oneworld.
