The Russian carrier UTair now connects Berlin-Tegel with Moscow Vnukovo airport, on a daily basis. The flight time between the two capitals takes just under two and a half hours. UTair is Russia’s third-biggest air carrier. The airline runs chartered and scheduled flight services, within Russia and to select international destinations. Moscow-Vnukovo Airport is its most important hub.
Moscow-Vnukovo Airport (VKO) is located around twelve kilometres southwest of Moscow, being the airport in closest proximity to Moscow’s city centre. An express train brings passengers and guests within 35 minutes to Kiyevskaya Railway Station, a transport hub in the centre of Moscow. The connection is an attractive addition for holidaymakers, as well as city and business travelers.
Moscow with over 11 million residents is one of the country’s most important travel hubs. Some of the most famous attractions can be found on Red Square, replete with Saint Basil’s Cathedral and its nine internal churches, the Kremlin, Lenin’s Mausoleum, the Bolshoi Theatre, numerous museum and galleries, along with the country’s biggest department store (GUM) – not to mention the city’s impressive metro stations.
