Moscow Domodedovo Airport gave a new life to the left behind books

15 February, 2019. Domodedovo, Moscow region. Moscow Domodedovo Airport has made books left behind in its terminals by passengers freely available in the departure area. Now travelers can enjoy the reading & bookcrossing* zone in one of Russia’s busiest airports.

Usually, airport security services check lost items and deliver them to the lost property office. The lost items are stored for a month and then destroyed. However, Moscow Domodedovo Airport has made an exception for books. Now passengers awaiting their flight in the Priority Pass Lounge can read a book as well as take or replace it with their own.

“We’ve breathed new life into these books”, - said Moscow Domodedovo Airport PR Director Daria Korshunova. – Every year the airport sees passengers with diverse interests representing different countries and cultures. That’s why browsing our shelf one can find works of the classical Russian writers as well as books in German, Spanish, Chinese, etc. Our collection contains books of various genres from Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s story on to Zac Gorman’s comics”.

The Priority Pass Lounge is the most popular among five business lounges operated by Moscow Domodedovo Airport. Last year it saw 280 000 passengers. Over 600 000 people visited the airport’s business lounges in 2018, a 12% increase on 2017 figures.

Business lounges are available for passengers round-the-clock in departure areas for both domestic and international flights. Passengers are welcome at the airport's business lounges regardless of their travel class.
