Wikipedia shows that SCAT Airlines flies from MCX to Aktau, Kazakhstan, which technically is in Asia (despite being only 300 km away, it's on the other side of the Caspian Sea). These flights didn't seem to show up on Kayak, but it may be that SCAT doesn't sell tickets through Kayak. All the other flights listed are within Russia.

Just about any major European airport with connections to both Russia and Mexico should allow sterile transit. To be able to use this facility, you have to make sure that you have a single layover in the Schengen area (no Mexico-Frankfurt-Vienna-Russia but only Mexico-Frankfurt-Russia or Mexico-Vienna-Russia) and that you buy the whole trip as a single ...

You do not need a visa for flying over a country. Even better, for connecting flights you can often even land at an airport and change the plane without a visa of the country the airport is in - although this does seem to depend on the airport and the terminals used by the flights in question and it's prudent to verify this with the carrier or the airport in ...

I've never heard of any situation in which you need a visa of any kind to fly over a country. You would only potentially need one if the flight was planning to land in Russia, in which case it would depend on your precise itinerary, citizenship, whether you needed to leave the transit area, etc. Imagine the confusion if you had to apply for transit visas ...

Can I take the train, instead of going by car? Would this cause me any trouble later during the trip, especially regarding visa issues? It will not be a problem as long as your 'invitation' still sync's up with your travel dates. Also, it will not prevent you from getting visas in the future.
