Moscow Domodedovo Airport ( Moskovsky Aeroport Domodedоvo) is an international airport located in Domodedovsky District, Moscow Oblast, Russia, 42 km (26.1 mi) south-southeast of the centre of Moscow. Domodedovo is the largest airport in Russia in terms of passenger and cargo traffic (22.25 million passengers used the airport in 2010, which is a 19.2% increase over 2009), and is one of the three major Moscow airports along with Sheremetyevo and Vnukovo.

In 2003 the airport began an expansion programme designed to obtain approval for wide-body aircraft operations. The runway, taxiways and parking areas were enlarged and strengthened. In March 2009 it was announced that the approval had been granted, making Domodedovo Airport the first in Russia approved for NLA operations such as the Airbus A380. The approval signifies that its operations areas comply with size and strength requirements of ICAO Category F standards.

On 24 January 2011, the airport was the target of a terrorist attack. As a result, increased security measures have been taken at the airport.
