A new VIP Terminal A has been opened at Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow. The terminal will be operated by Avia Group, a subsidiary of Sheremetyevo Airport. Terminal A is expected to receive its first passengers in January 2012.
The construction of a new terminal was first announced in June 2010. The area of the new terminal, located in the north-eastern part of the airport, is 2,700 m2. In addition to the standard departure and arrival areas, the terminal has 2 VIP waiting rooms, 2 meeting rooms, as well as a conference room. The bar overlooks the airfield and serves refreshing drinks and a variety of meals from Café Gallery SVO.
The development of the business aviation sector at Sheremetyevo was not limited to the construction of the terminal. Also, two hangars were built to store the maintenance of business aircraft. In the future, it is planned to build a helipad next to the terminal.
