Sheremetyevo International Airport is an international airport located 29km north-west of Moscow, Russia. It is a hub for the passenger operations of the Russian international airline Aeroflot, and one of the three major airports serving Moscow along with Domodedovo International Airport and Vnukovo. It is the second largest in Russia ; in 2007 it handled 14.04 million passengers.


Sheremetyevo International Airport is the joint-stock company that owns the airport. It was formed in 1996 from the publicly-owned operation that had controlled the airport since 1959. Although all the shares in the airport company are owned by the federal government, the city authorities of Moscow are eager to take a share of the airport revenues. They are arguing their case on the basis of disputed ownership of land that is used by the airport. Disputes over ownership may threaten the entire project if they are not resolved at an early stage. The most significant danger is to the third runway, which will need to use land that the airport does not own.

More than 60 airlines operate on a regular basis in Sheremetyevo, among them such major international airlines as Aeroflot, Air France, JAT, Lot Polish Airlines, Alitalia, Turkish Airlines, British Airways, Delta Airlines, KLM, Lufthansa, Finnair, Malev, Austrian Airlines and many others.
