Sheremetyevo solves transportation problem

Sheremetyevo airport seems to have solved the problem of transportation collapse, caused by road works begun on Leningradskoye highway. A free shuttle transfer has been organized for the passengers, departing from the 1 (B) and C Terminals and arriving to Terminal B. They are transported there from the E terminal, which is situated next to the Aeroexpress station.

Aeroexpress is for a moment the only one responsible way to get to the airport without coming too late. It arrives to the station, which is situated next to Terminal E, but rather distant from other terminals. The transfer is organized for the passengers of such air carriers as Avia Nova, Belavia, Aersvit, Dniproavia, Nordwind Airlines, Armavia, some international charter flights, flying from the Terminals 1 (B) and C.

To get to the transfer shuttles, the passenger should walk through the Terminal E buiding following the orange signs “Shuttles to Terminals B and C”. However, the transfer back is availiable from the Terminal B only.
