To fly directly to Krasnodar from abroad, one would use Austrian Airlines or Pegasus Airlines with flights landing directly in Krasnodar International Airport and thus bypassing the Moscow hub in Sheremetyevo International Airport. This option is usually more expensive and most travelers opt for cheaper flights with Moscow layovers, the cheapest of which are Aeroflot flights by the national Russian airline company. When flying through Moscow, one has to change terminals between Sheremetyevo I (international) to Sheremetyevo II (domestic), which can take several hours due to permanent heavy congestion in the city of Moscow.
