The airport stated that the measure was implemented due to the reduced passenger traffic, as well as the travel restrictions imposed on international air transportation.

The Government of the Russian Federation also issued an order to terminate the operations of regular and charter flights from Russian airports to foreign countries from 27 March to limit the spread of coronavirus in the country.

In the statement issued on 27 March, the airport added that the international departures and arrivals at Terminal D will be shifted to Terminal F, while domestic operations will be carried out at Terminal B.

Sheremetyevo Airport will accept the arrival of flights to evacuate Russian citizens to the country and the flights that received approval from the Government of the Russian Federation.

Passengers who arrive at Terminal F will undergo triple medical control.

In addition, preventive measures will be implemented on board aircraft. Passengers will be monitored by the employees of the sanitary and quarantine station of Rospotrebnadzor with the help of portable thermo-vision cameras.

Rospotrebnadzor is Russia’s Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing.

Moscow Department of Health, the Ministry of Health for Moscow Region, and Rospotrebnadzor employees will carry out final verification, passenger interviews and biomaterial sampling for analysis at the baggage claim area.

In cases where the passengers exhibit signs of illness, the medical unit personnel of Sheremetyevo Airport JSC will be alerted.

If a passenger is suspected to be infected by Covid-19, they will be shifted to the isolation ward in the health centre at Terminal F and later sent to the infectious diseases hospital.

Sheremetyevo Airport stated: “Sheremetyevo Airport will continue to comply strictly with all the instructions of the Government of the Russian Federation and the Emergency Operations Center for preventing the introduction and spread of new coronavirus infection in the Russian Federation under the chairmanship of Deputy Prime Minister T A Golikova.”
