From October 28, 2018, British Airways will begin operating one of its three daily services to Sheremetyevo International Airport (SVO) instead of Domodevo International Airport (DME), giving customers easy access to the north of the city.

SVO is located 18 miles northwest of central Moscow, while DME is 26 miles southeast from the center of the city.

British Airways’ timetable gives fliers the option of taking an early morning or mid-morning daytime flight or an overnight flight from Terminal 5 to the Russian capital.

The new SVO flight will be operated by an Airbus 321.British Airways is investing £4.5 billion for customers over the next five years, including the installation of the best quality WiFi and power in every seat, fitting 128 long-haul aircraft with new interiors and taking delivery of 72 new aircraft.

The airline is also investing £600m specifically in Club World, including outstanding catering and luxurious White Company bedding - plus, from 2019, a new seat with direct aisle access.
