Most visitors from abroad come to Moscow by air. There are three major airports in Moscow area: Sheremetyevo (served by Air France, Aeroflot, Lufthansa, Finnair, etc.), Domodedovo (serverd by Transaero, British Airways etc.) and Vnukovo (served mostly by local carriers.) Don't use taxi to go to/from airport - they are way too expensive (unless you call for a taxi pickup in advance.) All airports are served by buses and minibuses that goes to/from nearest subway (metro) station. Airports Domodedovo and Vnukovo are served by express trains that connect them respectively with Paveletsky Railway Station and Kievsky Railway Station (bot have convenient connections with the subway system's Ring line.) Sheremetyevo constructs its own express train system, but so far you have to go to the Savyolovsky Railway Station, take the express to Lobnya (35 miles north from Moscow) and continue some 4 miles by bus (bus fare included in the express train fare.)
