Domodedovo is Moscow's only privately owned airport, believed to be owned by Russian businessman Dmitry Kamenshchik.


In 1845, the Russian Emperor Nicholas I issued a decree on afforestation of the Kalmyk steppe. The first landings were made by the forest department in 1853 in the south of Ergeni and in the Elista gully. To increase the area of ​​forest plantations, labor was needed, so the forest department petitioned the Ministry of State Property to organize the settlement of the Elista Forest Plantation. Kumo-Manichesky scientific expedition under the guidance of scientist Kostenkov outlined in 1859-1861 years 15 places for the formation of settlements along the Crimean tract between the station Krestovskaya and Astrakhan, including in the Elista gully.

Before the formation of the first settlement, Kalmyks camped in the Elista girder, wandering around Manych. Kalmyks called this place Elstoy (Kalmy sandy) for the fact that the entire left-hand northern slope of the girder was friable sands. This name was fixed and for the village that arose here. The founder of Elista is the former Russian serf farmer Stepan Prokopievich Kiikov, who, on the advice of Kolya Bolya in the spring of 1862, built the first dugout in the Elista-Sale beam. By the autumn of 1865 there were 15 households in the village. This year is considered the year of the founding of the city. Elista's largest fame was brought by the largest cattle fairs in the Kalmyk steppe.

And now Elista is one of the most beautiful eastern cities in the world, many monuments, many things for which it is worth to fly! Welcome to the airport of Elista! We made it for you!
