Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport aspires to become a major passenger and cargo hub: Part 1
In Oct-2016 Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport (MSA) announced plans to become one of the largest passenger and cargo hubs in the world, following the completion of key airport development work ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
The ambition is certainly there, but achieving it relies on the coming together of matters that are under the airport’s control – such as the construction of a new terminal and runway – and those that are not, among which are numbered the national economy, sanctions, the success or failure of the World Cup (which could still be taken off Russia), the future development of alliances and how other airports compete against Sheremetyevo.
This report examines the Russian Federation’s economy, that of Moscow itself, and then Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport (MSA), in the latter case by way of several sets of metrics. It then looks at the airports in Russia and elsewhere that are rivals to it, at the airport's construction activities and at its changing ownership.
