Vnukovo International Airport presented a model of the airport complex and a metro station project at the Transport of Russia exhibition
Vnukovo will be the first airport in Moscow, which can be accessed directly by the metro. In 2022, passengers will have the opportunity to choose the most convenient form of transport: aeroexpress, buses, trolleybuses, taxis, car-sharing, or subway.
The Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya line will run along the Aeroexpress route, bypassing the village of Vnukovo. Tracing is provided along the Borovsky highway. The metro is fully integrated into the airport infrastructure for the maximum comfort of passengers. Station "Vnukovo" will be above ground and will be located on the territory of parking lots. The subway will become closer to 170 thousand residents of the capital, and the quality of transport services will increase for Vnukovo Airport, taking into account the increase in passenger traffic by 1.5 times.
To cope with the growing passenger flow and prevent heavy traffic around the airport complex, the airport is developing a new scheme of movement and stops for vehicles, as well as prepared a project for multi-level parking. Its area will be 64 thousand square meters, capacity - 2,000 parking spaces. An indoor passage will lead from the parking lot to Terminal A. The facility is scheduled to be commissioned in 2022.

Among them are federal agencies, state corporations, Russian and foreign private companies, educational institutions whose activities are related to the transport sector. The Russian regions also presented their projects in the field of transport infrastructure.
