Vnukovo was built in order to expand airport capacity for Moscow. This was due to the Khodynka Aerodrome being operating at full capacity.
Construction started in 1937 and the airport opened in 1941 during the Second World War. It was used as an airbase for the military and didn’t host its first commercial flight until 20th April 1956.
Its second passenger terminal ‘Terminal B’ opened in 2004 handling international passengers only.
The airport is located 30km south-west of the city centre of Moscow, it takes approximately 28 minutes to travel there by car.
