How does Sheremetyevo Airport
• How does Sheremetyevo
He says the author of the informative community LiveJournal Aslan Shauey: "A year ago, the day of my birth Sheremetyevo Airport now bloggers and active users of the site review" Flamp "invited guests. During the tour of the closed to the general public Sheremetyevo places we have had the opportunity to personally see and learn about the functioning of the international airport. "
Walk in concealed from the passenger seat and see how it works Sheremetyevo.
In the first place we looked "Aeroexpress" in the office, which arrived at the airport, where the staff provide the schedule of trains running. We were told that before traveled by Aeroexpress Savelovsky station, but it was uncomfortable due to the fact that is not in the ring, and the train moved on Belarusian.
At the Airport, and various modifications to the trains go to Domodedovo. This is due to the difference in the dimensions of runs in both the airport. Trains walk in Domodedovo Sheremetyevsky compact, but at the end of this year will go to Domodedovo Aeroexpress floors.
However, trains rarely stop on the line, if the Aeroexpress train was late for 15 minutes, then you can at the information desk to write an application and you cancel the ticket for travel. And if aeroexpress late for 30 minutes, then cancel the ticket price. For example, during one of the events, when the train was late by no fault of their own, the company paid to passengers about 600 thousand. Rubles.
If for some reason stops Aeroexpress, in this case at Sheremetyevo always ready buses, which will be sent after you and take you to the airport. Operate these buses only close to the airport, as in Moscow to leave, they can not physically because of the enormous time that may be required for standing in traffic jams. By the way, the staff Aeroexpress constantly monitors congestion at the airport.
surveillance cameras installed very much, so there is a problem: the camera can see everything, but where to find so many people to watch the images from all the cameras on monitors? It is physically impossible, but there is a solution.
For example, the cameras are equipped with a function of reaction to the running man. If the speed of a person higher than the average crowd speed, the camcorder into which he fell, responds instantly and displays your image with this man on the central monitor to the security officer could take a closer look at what is happening there and to take the necessary measures, for example by calling police. Data from all cameras are stored for 1 month.
We go on to find out all the details of getting luggage on the plane. On the way, we do surveillance. Smoking is harmful!
This year I have twice passed through this corridor, but now unfortunately will not fly.
Beautiful sky at Sheremetyevo.
What are some secret ways get into the baggage equipment area in the southern terminal complex (terminals D, E, F) - the largest in Russia and Eastern Europe. We spoke about new technologies five-level baggage screening system shown in Sheremetyevo its accessories, as well as looking for lost belongings of passengers.
Luggage, passengers sit at the front desk, where the suitcases and bags were weighed and attached a label with a bar code. Information about the passenger and the baggage enters an information system. At this stage of the path of the passenger and luggage diverge, bags are sent on a conveyor belt and sent to a passenger traveling light.
Rules of carriage may vary depending on the airline, mainly concerned the maximum weight of luggage that you can take with you, but there are rules that are binding on all. Excerpts of them hanging around the reception area. Handing over baggage, the passenger is obliged to comply with them - it is impossible to transport explosives, firearms, and much more.
After descending down the luggage falls into a huge mechanism that quickly and accurately distributes all suitcases and bags on the dates of flights. The correct name of the mechanism - automatic baggage sorting system (ASSB). The total length of lines of the system - about 3 kilometers.
All baggage passes scan for explosives and prohibited items. Inspection is also automated, the process is further controlled by the people. At each step of sorting each piece of luggage passes by special scanners that identify it by barcode.
If you think that every suitcase neatly fit into the container, then you are wrong. Do not carry anything valuable and fragile in suitcases. Based on my experience with them is not very ceremony.
On the way luggage is checked by using the "Yantar" system for dangerous for transportation of components. But the system detects potentially dangerous bagyzh no automatic way.
Here, there are special sections where the check every bag moving on the conveyor belt.
They have only 15 seconds to make a decision: to miss your suitcase on the plane or to arrange a further test with an addiction, if there is something suspicious.
After inspecting the luggage travels tapes. Some just go to the next flight, some go to the storage system. This is to cater for passengers who are registered and hand luggage is not 2 hours before flight departure, and for 6 or even 24.
Use of the automatic baggage sorting system allows you to increase the capacity and speed of processing. In order not to complicate the system, it is strongly recommended that before the delivery of luggage at the front to pick off the tag from other airports.
If the system detects two distinct barcode baggage go to the manual check. Much worse would be if the case will go to the wrong flight, aviation, and there are such cases. By the way, in addition to a large tag on the bags glue from different sides three more small with the same barcode.
From the conveyor belt baggage gets in special compartments in which luggage is going to the correct flight. Such a compartment called slide-ways. Each slide-ways hanging screen, which displays information about the flight. From the moment of delivery of the suitcase before it reaches the slide-ways takes a few minutes.
Also it sorted incorrectly baggage.
work for longshoremen mountains here!
Slide-ways of the luggage is loaded into containers or trolleys that are transported to the aircraft. Using containers accelerates the loading and unloading, but the selection method of transportation is to airline's discretion.
After the overloaded luggage on trolley, it clings to such electric vehicles and driven to the aircraft. There he was loaded into the luggage compartment. All luggage must be loaded on board 12 minutes before departure. For each flight, a list of luggage, it is indicated, in which the container, which are the suitcases. This information helps with unloading luggage to determine the priority issue in those cases when the baggage removed from the flight.
We find out all about the luggage, go now on the airfield to see how airplanes fly.
Here, "Aeroflot" quite a lot of planes, Sheremetyevo airport is considered the home of the airline.
As we stood and hunted iron birds everywhere cries strange bird. We explained that it was the cry of merlin, recorded and played back for scaring birds, which can get into the various parts of the aircraft, including the engine. At the Airport operates a birdwatchers department whose task using a variety of means to force the birds to stay away from the airport. Moreover, in the Sheremetyevo they experience various new means of bird control. In addition to the sounds of the merlin raznosyaschihsya vzlotnym field, recently began to put more shiny balls. They say these balls also repel birds.

Further, our path lies in the airport control center - TSUA, opened in 2011. Here the CWP, which controls everything that happens in Sheremetyevo. With its creation, the experience of the leading airports in the world, such as London and Zurich.
It should not be confused with TSUA dispatch center coordinating flights. Here, a smooth functioning infrastructure is Aeroportovskaya.
