Domodedovskaya

Domodedovskaya (Russian: Домодедовская) is a Moscow Metro station in Orekhovo-Borisovo Severnoye and Orekhovo-Borisovo Yuzhnoye districts, Southern Administrative Okrug, Moscow. It is on the Zamoskvoretskaya Line, between Orekhovo and Krasnogvardeyskaya stations. It located at the intersection of Kashirskoye Highway and Orekhovy Boulevard.

The station opened on 7 September 1985.

Domodedovskaya is named after Domodedovo International Airport, which is located some 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) to the south of the station along the Kashirskoye Highway. There is a regular shuttle bus service from the station to Domodedovo, as Domodedovskaya provides the fastest ground access to the airport.

The station was designed by architects N. Aleshina and N. Samoylova. Like many other stations built in the 1970s and 1980s, Domodedovskaya has a decorative theme related to the local surroundings. Appropriately enough, the theme here is aviation. The pillars are faced with white marble with inlays of darker marble, and the walls are decorated with plaques depicting Soviet aircraft.
