Domodedovo Airport (IATA: DME). Domodedovo -
Moscow airport with the largest passenger traffic. It consists of a
single, ever-overloaded terminal. It is located 23 km south-east of
Moscow Ring Road, named after the city of the Moscow Region of the
same name, however, it is located relatively far from it.
The terminal has two floors. On the first floor in the center of
the reception, on the left (if you look from the station square)
arriving international lines, on the right - arriving internal lines
and Aeroexpress station. Minibuses and buses drive up to the
terminal itself, its central part. With the exception of a fairly
spacious international arrivals area, the first floor is always
filled with people and contains nothing useful except for a couple
of tiny cafes, mobile phone racks, and paid sockets. Nowhere to sit.
The second floor is occupied by numerous cafes and waiting
rooms, where compared to the first floor is quite free. The best
food option is the Mu-Mu dining room, hidden in the far right corner
(next to access to sector D). Prices are almost the same as in the
city, you can fully dine for 500-600 rubles (2015). In a similar
format, the Yolki-Palki tavern, located approximately in the center
of the terminal, operates. Its advantage is the presence of sockets
next to the tables along the wall. The rest of the cafes are
significantly more expensive, although it is more comfortable in
places, and the chances of finding an outlet in them are higher.
Next to the "Mu-Mu" children's corner (450 rubles / h). In the
center of the hall is a Megaphone stand with internet access (250
rubles / h), the ability to print and sell SIM cards. Free Wi-Fi

a DVD Cinema bar - these are sofas in front of TVs showing films
(600 rubles / person).

basement under the arrival halls. There are also showers, 350 rubles
The departure zone is divided into four sectors,
but really A and B are two escalator-connected compartments in the
left wing of the terminal (international departures), and C and D
