Northern Capital Gateway
Airport Pulkovo Saint Petersburg is the fourth busiest airport in Russia after Moscow’s airports.
It is located 23 kilometers away from the central Palace Square of the city. City bus number 39, 39Ex 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 2010 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 is the first public-private partnership project in the Russian airport industry.
The airport is located at Pulkovskoye Shosse, Building 41, lit. ZA, Saint Petersburg, Russia.
