The Aeroexpress train in Moscow.
Before we left for Russia I came across information about the Aeroexpress speed train that links Domodedovo Airport to Moscow city.
At the time I didn`t have any first hand information available so I decided to write a separate article about how the Aeroexpress train works after our visit.. It is in fact a very comfortable and affordable way to get into the city.
Leaving Domodedovo Airport to get into Moscow with the Aeroexpress Train.
Domodedovo Airport is marked and signs to the train is clearly visible. Tickets can be bought at the ticket office inside the airport terminal. There are also electronic ticket machines available where you can buy your tickets with a credit card. Trains depart every 30 minutes to the city.
After you have purchased your ticket make your way to the train platform. You will be issued with a bar coded ticket and this you have to insert into one of the electronic machines. It is the only way to get access to the platform. After you have inserted your ticket, the doors will open and you can enter the platform. Please note that the train is very busy and if you have a lot of luggage then it can be complicated to manoeuvre through the gates.
The train doesn`t make any stops and goes directly to Paveletskiy station in Moscow.
The train is brand new and very comfortable. Your ticket doesn`t get checked again and you can put it away. Don`t dispose of it because you will need it again to leave the terminal. Most business people use the Aeroexpress train because they avoid the busy Moscow traffic. Staff will come round and offer beverages and something to eat. This is not included in the price of the ticket.
Journey time is 45 minutes.
Leaving Paveletskiy station to Domodedovo:
Tickets can be purchased at the station. We battled to find the ticket office because it wasn`t marked properly. Allow for extra time if you are unfamiliar with Paveletskiy station. Exit the ticket area and you will find the platform where you will get the Aeroexpress train.
How mush does a ticket on the Aeroexpress train cost?
A ticket for adults cost 320 Rubles one way. Children aged 5 to 7 pay 100 Rubles. There is no cost for children under 5 years old.
