I am thinking of flying from Warsaw to Moscow. The problem with the cheap airline air Baltic is that it arrives at 2:00 in the deep night.

Is there still subway to the downtown?

    Arrival in the late night is not specific to "cheap" airlines. Also "expensive " airlines arrive in the middle of the night (e.g. Lufthansa). Personally I made the experience that this is not a disadvantage in Moscow. – Maître Peseur Sep 27 '15 at 18:51

    The Metro doesn't reach any of the airports. The last Aeroexpress trains connecting airports to the city depart at 0:00 or 0:30 depending on airport. The Metro opens at 5:30 and closes at 1:00. – ach Sep 27 '15 at 19:26

    Which airport? There's a train out of Domodedovo -> Paveletsky, but no way it runs at 2 AM. – Gayot Fow Sep 27 '15 at 20:14

At that hour, I presume you are flying Air Baltic BT 416 from Riga to Vnukovo (VKO). You can see the routes on this route map, enter Moscow on the left and pick Sheremetyevo (SVO) or VKO to see the flights. The only bus is 611 which does not run per this 611 timetable this late. The express bus is even more limited per this 611s timetable.


If your flight arrives in Sheremetievo (BT426), then you may use the H1 (it's russian N letter) night bus. It goes right through the city center, and at night there will be no traffic jams.

Judging by the timetable, the first bus leaves the airport at 03:00, which should give you the time to pass the customs, then every half hour.
