Sheremetyevo Alexander S. Pushkin International Airport (Russian: Международный Aэропорт Шереметьево имени А.С. Пушкина; IPA: [ʂɨrʲɪˈmʲetʲjɪvə] Sheremet'yevo Aeroport Mezhdunarodnyy imeni A.S. Pushkina) (IATA: SVOICAO: UUEE) is one of four international airports that serves the city of Moscow. It is the busiest airport in Russia. Sheremetyevo was a military base which became a civilian airport in 1959, and in a 2019 contest, was named after Russian poet Alexander Pushkin.

The airport had six terminals: four international terminals (one under construction), one domestic terminal, and one private aviation terminal. It is located in 29 km (18 mi) northwest of central Moscow, in the city of Khimki, Moscow Oblast.
