Saint Petersburg Russia Flights-Airport

Saint Petersburg's major airport is Pulkovo Airport (LED).

International flights arrive at Pulkovo-2 terminal, while domestic flights arrive at Pulkovo-1. The two terminals are separated by a 20 minute bus trip.

Pulkovo Airport is about 17 km south of St Petersburg city center. Taxies are available, but expensive, especially if you are limited in your knowledge of Russian. If you decide to take a taxi, try flagging a taxi from the road instead of cabs waiting outside of the arrival terminal. Taxies serving incoming flights tend to be inflated in price.

A quick, convenient alternative is the marshrutki (mini-buses) which take you to the nearest metro station. Alternatively, if time isn't an issue, take bus № 13, located between the separate arrival and departure buildings of Pulkovo-2 terminal. It will take you to Moskovskaya metro station.
