    The "Siberia Airlines" and the "Transaero" operate their flights from the Domodedovo Airport of Moscow, while all the flights operated by the "Aeroflot" depart the Sheremetyevo 1 (domestic terminal).

Also, there are direct flights from the following cities:
    Dubai, Beijing, as well as from other CIS cities, such as Baku, Vladivostok, Erevan, Irkutsk, Krasnodar, Samara, St. Petersburg, Tashkent, Khabarovsk, Yakutsk.

    Novosibirsk has an excellent railroad connection, too, having been situated right in the Trans-Siberian railway.
    Trans-Siberian railway is the world's longest and the most famous train route that goes through Russia. It crosses the whole continent, starts in Moscow, passes through the European Russia, crosses Urals mountains (which separate Europe and Asia), continues into Siberia's taiga and steppes, and finishes in Vladivostok — the Russian Far East coast on the Pacific Ocean.
    The Trans-Siberian is an immense route: along more than 10000 kilometers of its length you will see different landscapes, meet many different people and cultures (especially, if you hop off the train at few points), experience magnificient Siberian Baikal lake, and just enjoy the trip in the train.
    So it is possible to reach almost all the cities, situated either to the east or to the west of Novosibirsk: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Ekaterinburg, Omsk, Irkutsk, Ulan-Ude, Ulan-Bator, Beijing, Vladivistok and the others. Please contact us for any additional information and schedule.
