Domodedovo Airport Turns 50!

7th of April, 2012 the Moscow airport Domodedovo turned 50! It’s big, comfortable and modern. Each day the airport is changing for the better. It was the first airport to accept Aeroexpress trains. It was the first to begin reconstruction and become the most modern airport of Russia. One year ago it set an absolute record of flights sent off. 425 planes left the airport with 51 000 passengers.

25 March 1964 was the day of the first passenger flight by TU-104 from Moscow to Sverdlovsk. On 20 May 1964 they opened the air-terminal complex. Regular flights have been performed since 1966.

Today we are going to show you some archival photos of the airport and some modern ones.

  1. We have a small problem here! The first flight wasn’t until 25MAR64. That makes the airport just over 48 years old.
