Aeroexpress took part in organizing a unique event on January 20, 2011, in Sheremetyevo International Airport: Aero-Opening Day.

Sheremetyevo International Airport

Aero-Opening Day was made up of several programs linked by the idea of Service as Art, and served as the start of a new tradition – organizing and developing a series of art projects in the airport’s terminals and in the Aeroexpress train terminal. Sheremetyevo plans to become an interactive cultural site for passengers and airport guests.

The Aerojazz festival took part in the Aeroexpress railway terminal for the first time, and will now regularly please passengers on weekends and holidays.

The Aero-Opening Day event also featured the opening of the SVOy World with GEO photo exhibition. The exhibition had 70 photos taken during the September photo-spotting in Sheremetyevo and the Aeroexpress train terminal by professional photographers, bloggers, and children from the charity project “We live on this Earth.” Six authors who contributed their most interesting works were given special prizes from Sheremetyevo Airport and GEO travel magazine.
