I swore after my first trip to Russia that I would never use this airport again but unfortunately I had to use it three times on this trip (domestic only so not having to transfer may have been a bonus). At least the AeroExpress from the city is a big plus but despite what is advertised the free bus transfer works only one way - it's provided by the airport so travels inside the security perimeter to the domestic terminals. Of course when you arrive on a domestic flight you end up outside the terminal and therefore outside the secure area so you have to get the marshrutki shuttle (60 roubles) back to the AeroExpress terminal. Security and check-in for my first flight was very quck and easy and I thought that perhaps things had improved in the last four years. That impression was very quickly ruined by my second visit - baggage took 40 minutes to arrive causing me to miss check-in for my connecting flight. AviaNova staff moved mountains to get me on the plane but it meant going through security 3 times with all the rigmarole of shoes off and on even though the security staff had already seen me go through the next scanner 10 metres away and then out of their own secure zone! At least there is now no smoking in the "No Smoking" area of the departure lounge. To top it all off when I arrived on my last flight the baggage was on the carousel when we got into the terminal - talk about Jekyll and Hyde!
