Aeroexpress Trains to Sheremetyevo Disrupted in April

Passengers traveling to Sheremetyevo Airport from Belorussky Station should bear in mind that the Aeroexpress schedule will be disrupted for the rest of the month by ongoing repair works.

The airport's press service said in a statement that repair works between April 15 and 20, April 22 and 27 and on April 29 will mean that trains to Sheremetyevo from the city center will be cancelled at 10:30 p.m., 11.30 p.m. and 00:30 a.m.

But despite the reduced service, airport authorities on Monday advised Muscovites to use the Aeroexpress in order to alleviate traffic congestion on routes leading to the airport.

The airport's Twitter account said: "Due to congestion on the overpass leading to the International Highway, we recommend using our Aeroexpress service."

Last week, Aeroexpress canceled all its morning trips from Moscow’s Paveletsky Station to Domodedovo Airport and back for for two days after a truck rammed into a railroad bridge, damaging train tracks.
