Zakhaev International Airport (Russian: Международный аэропорт Захаев) is an airport in Moscow, Russia. The airport is named after Imran Zakhaev, considered to be a national hero after the Ultranationalists gained power in Russia.
The airport is the setting for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 single-player mission "No Russian" where it suffered a major terrorist attack led by Vladimir Makarov that sparked World War III, the multiplayer map Terminal, and a Special Ops mission also named Terminal. It also makes an appearance in Blood Brothers in the flashback scene.
