Sheremetyevo restores runway capacity after Superjet accident

Moscow Sheremetyevo airport is restoring normal traffic capacity after the removal of wreckage from the Aeroflot aircraft which suffered a landing accident on 5 May.

The airport had issued a NOTAM on 6 May stating that capacity had been reduced to 42 hourly movements, and that the restriction would remain in effect until early the following day.

Sheremetyevo’s operator states that the wreckage has been transferred to a remote parking zone, and that two-runway operations have been restored.

“Over the coming days the airport will re-establish its regular schedule of flights,” it adds.

Sheremetyevo is nearing completion of a third runway, construction of which is due to be completed in July.
