Sheremetyevo Alexander S. Pushkin International Airport (Russian: Международный аэропорт Шереметьево имени А.С. Пушкина, IPA: [ʂɨrʲɪˈmʲetʲjɪvə] Mezhdunarodnyy aeroport Sheremet'yevo imeni A.S. Pushkina) (IATA: SVO, ICAO: UUEE) is one of four international airports that serves the city of Moscow. It is the busiest airport in Russia. Sheremetyevo was a military base which became a civilian airport in 1959,[2] and in a 2019 contest, was named after Russian poet Alexander Pushkin.[3]

The airport had six terminals: four international terminals (one under construction), one domestic terminal, and one private aviation terminal.[4] It is located in 29 km (18 mi) northwest of central Moscow, in the city of Khimki, Moscow Oblast.
