With the completion of the first stage of the project for the reconstruction and development of Pulkovo Airport, the new building became the basis for a centralized passenger terminal. Today, the airport complex includes a new terminal, a reconstructed building of the former Pukovo-1, and a northern boarding gallery. The total investement of Nortnern Capital Gateway LLC, the operator of St. Petersburg airport, into the first phase of Pulkovo reconstruction and development project, including the construction of the new terminal, amounted to 1.2 billion euros.
