Air Astana transfers Moscow flights from Sheremetyevo to Domodedovo

Air Astana has transferred flight operations from Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport to Moscow Domodedovo Airport with effect from 27 October 2019.

The transfer of flights will be carried out without any interruption to the Kazakhstan airline’s schedule. This change of airport is for services from both Nur-Sultan (11 weekly services in winter) and Almaty (14 weekly services in winter).

The change of airport in Russia’s capital is linked to the recent signing of a codeshare agreement with S7 Airlines, with Domodedovo Airport being the Russian carrier’s operational base in Moscow.

Moscow Domodedovo Airport served 29.4 million passengers in 2018. It’s the base airport for the largest global airline alliances, OneWorld and Star Alliance; with 50 scheduled airlines operating to 202 destinations.

Air Astana launched flights from Almaty and Nur-Sultan to Moscow in September 2002. Since that date, the airline carried over 3.5 million passengers and more than 26,000 tonnes of cargo on the routes.
