Flydubai flight FZ918 aborted the takeoff at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport after commencing the takeoff without clearance. At the same time, another aircraft was crossing the runway.
The aircraft, a Boeing 737-800, taxied onto runway 06R at 06:54 and began rolling for takeoff. At the same time Aeroflot flight SU151, an Airbus A330-243 (VQ-BBF) was crossing the runway via taxiway A4. The aircraft had just landed on runway 06C after a flight from Havana, Cuba, and was taxiing to the terminal.
Since the tower controller had not yet issued a clearance for takeoff, flight FZ918 was instructed to abort. The aircraft then vacated the runway via taxiway A3 and taxied to a parking spot on the apron, where it arrived at 07:26 UTC.
About 09:00 UTC the aircraft left the parking spot and taxied to runway 06C, from where it took off normally at 09:27 UTC.

Taxiway A4 crossed runway 06R at 2770 m from the runway threshold. At the time of crossing, there was a separation of about 2050 m between the two aircraft.

Weather about the time of the incident (0654Z) was poor with visibility decreasing from 4000 m at 0630Z to 1700 m at 0700Z due to snowfall:
