Father Frost puts holiday travellers in party mood

Moscow's airports are packed with people on their way to hundreds of destinations to celebrate the New Year. And sending them off with a good holiday feeling has become a top priority. Music, clowns and Father Frost are on hand to get the atmosphere right

Almost 850,000 people are flying out from Domodedovo this holiday season. That's a 25 per cent increase on last year's figure.

Dancing around a Christmas tree, playing recorders, painted faces and extremely excited children.  Not a typical scene for an airport. But it's what Moscow airports look like at this time of year.
