You'll need to break up the journey from Moscow to Manila because there are no direct flights on this route. Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines and Emirates offer the best alternative — a flight with just one stop.
It's a considerable distance from Moscow Airport (DME-Domodedovo Intl.) to Manila Airport (MNL-Ninoy Aquino Intl.) — in fact, 12 hours and 20 minutes at least. But your time in the air doesn't have to be a drag. Be prepared and step on the plane with the essentials like a few toiletries and a pillow.

Moscow is the sixth most populous city in Europe with a population of over 11.5 million, and it is served by five airports: the Sheremetyevo International Airport, Bykovo Airport, Vnukovo International Airport, Ostafevo International Airport and Domodedovo International Airport. The airport used for most international flights from Moscow is the Domodedovo International Airport, located 26 miles from the city center, with the rest primarily handling domestic flights to other Russian destinations and flights to former Soviet states. International carriers operating from Domodedovo include Aeroflot, Air China, Korean Air, British Airways and Delta Airlines. Seats on many of the flights can be reserved online through Orbitz.com.
Short-term parking is available near the passenger terminal starting at $1.50 per hour. Long-term parking can be found at the long-term car park for around $18 a day.
Domodedovo Airport is linked to Moscow by a speedway, allowing quick transportation from the city to the airport by car, taxi or bus. The airport also operates the Aeroexpress railway service. The Aeroexpress train takes between 20 and 25 minutes to make the trip from Moscow to the airport at a cost of about $10. The express bus takes about 30 minutes but is less expensive at $3.00. Taxis can be booked anywhere in the city, with costs varying according to starting location.
A quick meal before departing from Moscow can be eaten at the low-cost fast food restaurants located within the airport. Kroshka-Kartoshka specializes in foil-wrapped baked potatoes with tasty fillings, while Sbarro offers dishes such as lasagna, calzone and stromboli. Indian dishes are available at the Paprika restaurant and Uzbek cuisine at Uzbechka. Several other restaurants are available as well, offering travelers a hearty meal before catching their flights from Moscow.
When you book cheap flights to Manila, you'll likely arrive at Ninoy Aquino International Airport, which is also known as Manila International Airport. It is about four miles south of the country's capital, Manila, and it is southwest of Makati City's business district. Some of its carriers include CEBU Pacific Air, Air Philippines, and Cathay Pacific Airways. Orbitz.com can help you choose the ticket that best fits your needs.
There is a taxi service available from Ninoy Aquino International Airport to all of the main areas of Metro Manila. Taxis charge approximately 150 to 200 pesos, which is around $6 to $8. An airport bus runs every 15 minutes, and the city bus service stops outside Terminals 1 and 2. It will take between 20 minutes and an hour to reach Manila from the airport.
Manila's temperatures stay within a small range most of the year. Plan for temperatures to average between 71 and 93 degrees Fahrenheit, no matter what time of year you go to Manila.
Manila is the capital of the Philippines, so there is plenty to see and do. The National Museum has exhibits with sunken treasures and a Manila galleon from the 1600s. There are many ornate churches, including the San Agustin Church, because many people in the Philippines are Catholic. To book flights to Manila and tickets to activities, visit Orbitz.com.
