About the Airport

Airport Pulkovo Saint Petersburg is the third busiest airport in Russia after Moscow’s Domodedovo and Sheremetyevo airports.

It is located 23 kilometers away from the central Palace Square of the city. City bus number 39, 39A and “marshrutka” minibus number K39 run between the nearest Moskovskaya metro station and the airport. You also can take advantage of taxi or your personal car.

Airport code of LED1 derives from the city’s previous name under USSR — Leningrad.

There are almost 4000 people employed at the airport.

Since 2009 the airport is managed by NCG (Northern Capital Gateway) under the private-public partnership agreement among three parties — the City of St. Petersburg, Pulkovo Airport Company (100% owned by the City) and NCG. This private-public partnership is the first one in the Russian airport industry.

The companies participating in “Northern Capital Gateway” are Russian VTB Capital, member of state-owned VTB Group, German Fraport AG, which manages and operates the airport of Frankfurt and many other international airports, and Horizon Air Investments S.A. member of the Greek Copelouzos Group.

The airport is located at Pulkovskoye Shosse, Building 41, lit. ZA, Saint Petersburg, Russia.
