Reviews – What People Are Saying

I’ve been reading a lot of reviews coming from the airport’s customers, and I’ve noticed that the airport is always ranked as an average airport that provides good services and facilities. Sheremetyevo might not be the best airport in Moscow–as far as these reviews are concerned, but it can still give its customers the satisfaction they need. Here are some of the reviews:

Sheremetyevo International Airport Inside 1

Great Airport. But the terminal C of the landing which is very small. It is not intended for long-term stay in it. Relax before a long journey will not turn out. border control staff is not friendly, do not greet. Behave politely. This terminal is usually landing on flights to the United States and Mexico. In this direction, fly aircraft such as the Boeing 777, the same as big the destroyed Russian military passenger plane Malaysia in Ukraine in the summer of 2014.”

“Airport itself is good – lots of WC, various cafes and shops. But as for everything else related to flights – long as hell queues – on passport control, on luggage check, etc. Not always though, sometimes you might get lucky. But most of the time on my trips here its been long as hell both ways, in & out. Probably my most hated airport due queues.”

Everything was perfect, and i made my flight and everything.”

    A very convenient airport, the place was clean and has a lot of shops, restaurants and even comfort rooms. I was there a year ago and it was okay, except–perhaps some of their staff which were obviously having a bad day. Overall, it was a good airport.
