Most likely there is no direct flight from your city to Elista, so you will have to fly through Moscow. Please note that there are 3 international airports in Moscow: SVO, DME and VKO. All three are in the same distance from the city center.
The most convinient way to get from Moscow to Elista is a direct flight from VKO by this local airline
. There is one daily flight from Moscow at 11:00 am and at 13:45 from Elista. Since it's only one daily flight, we advise to book asap!
When you will go through the passport control, you will receive a migration control card. Don't loose it, you may need to show it when you leave the country. TRANSFER
If you fly not to VKO, make sure you have enough time to go through passport control, pick your luggage and transfer to VKO (can take 2 hours or more). We recommend to use Aeroexpress train
to get from any airport to the city center, as it's cheaper and usually faster (45 minutes) than by taxi. If you prefer taxi, use Uber or Gett apps. Unfortunatelly there is a chance that a taxi driver at the airport will try to take advantage and ask too much money for the ride.
Same for Elista, we advise to use Uber/Yandex app there.
