St Petersburg Pulkovo (LED) Airport

St Petersburg Pulkovo LED Airport Overview

Saint Petersburg Pulkovo International Airport LED is one of the Russian Federation's most important airports and also serves as a transfer point for travelers between the East and the West.  It is busiest during the summer season when visitors flock to the spectacular sites of the historic city of St. Petersburg. Pulkovo, which celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2013,  is managed by Northern Capital Gateway, an international consortium.

LED Airport is located 10.6 miles (or 40-60 minutes by car), from downtown St. Petersburg (and near the border of Finland), accessible directly from both motorways E95 & M20.

Pulkovo Airport has year-over-year passenger increases, and has a yearly estimate of 12.5M passengers. With two long runways it is served by a host of national and international airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe.

NOTE:  Arrive at the Airport at least 2.5 hours prior to scheduled departure time.  You can considerably reduce waiting time by using either self-check-in counters in the departure area or check in online.

On-Airport Hotels:
1. The new on-Airport four-star Radisson Park Inn Hotel can be reached from the extended area of the new terminal.
2. The new Park Inn by Radisson - accessible by enclosed walkway from the passenger terminal (T1).

Pulkovo International Airport has now a new integrated passenger terminal.  Parking is available at Garage P1 and parking lots P2, P3, P4 & P7.

Future Airport Developments:
1.  New  Terminal 1 is officially open & has now completed its airline transfers of both domestic & international flights; however, it will still be under construction for quite some time thereafter, integrating the old 'Pulkovo 1' and adding many other features.   (Both the old Pulkovo 1 & 2 terminals have been shut down.)
2. Under consideration are the construction of (a)  Western High-Speed Diameter and (b) above-ground express line & electric train railway.
