St. Petersburg Russia Airport

Pulkovo Airport Basics…

The primary airport in St. Petersburg Russia is the Pulkovo Airport.  It is currently (2013) the 3rd largest in all of Russia, behind Sheremetyevo and the Domodedovo Airports in Moscow.  Serving around 6 million passengers per year, the airport is broken into two different terminals – each situated on opposite sides of the runway system. 

Terminal 1 is primarily used for non-international traffic, while Terminal 2 is used almost exclusively for international traffic.  While they are a “stone’s throw” away from each other, they will need to be accessessed via car – which is a 5 km drive.

Pulkovo Airport Car Rental…

As mentioned above, the Pulkovo Airport is cut into two different terminal areas.  Each terminal has its car rental agent situated within the terminal.  For Terminal 2 you will find that the car rental agents are located near the entrance/exit.  For the Terminal 1 you will find that the car rental agents are located both on the second floor and the first floor – depending on the rental car company that you have pre-booked with.

Cars are parked outside of each terminal.  Just make sure to ask the agent of exactly where the cars are parked.  Also, make sure that where you return the rental vehicle is where you picked it up, too.

When heading out of the airport to St. Petersburg, you first need to loop around a couple of times before you get on the primary road to St. Petersburg.  If you don’t speak Russian, you will need to refresh yourself on the language before traveling out.  We can’t really help you here except that you need to watch for this word - САНКТ ПЕТЕРБУРГ.  This means St. Petersburg and watch these series of letters on the blue signs taking you into the city.

Gas Stations Near the Pulkovo Airport…

There are a couple of good gas stations not far from the Pulkovo Airport.  In fact, there is one on the corner of a road that connects the two terminals.  The station is about 2 km from both terminal 1 and terminal 2.

There is really one quality hotel near the Pulkovo Airport in St. Petersburg.  It is the Crown Plaza St. Petersburg Airport Hotel.  For you GPS’ers it is situated at Startovaya Street 6, 196210 Saint Petersburg.  The hotel sits across the road from Terminal 2, so if you’re flying into Terminal 1 you’ll need to somehow get to the Terminal 2 to get to the hotel.
