Qatar Airways’ first flight to Sheremetyevo International Airport (SVO) has touched down.
The airline has moved its services to Moscow from Domodedovo Airport to Sheremetyevo.
Qatar Airways group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “With our growing network, we can offer passengers from Sheremetyevo seamless connectivity to popular destinations in Asia, Africa, Middle East and the Americas, and top sunshine getaways like Maldives, Seychelles and Zanzibar.
