Pulkovo airport Saint Petersburg Reviews
Small fast and not beautiful Nov 15, 2010
It was my first time in Polkovo airport and a couple of things struck me; it was much smaller than I anticipated and also a lot faster in all their services than I ever would have dared to guess.
Since 2007 Pulkovo is the 4th busiest in Russia after Moscow's Domodedovo, Sheremetyevo and Vnukovo airports. There are two passenger terminals: Pulkovo-1 for domestic flights and Pulkovo-2 for international flights and there is also one cargo terminal. The airport has two main runways; the first runway is 3782 m long and 60 m wide, and the second runway is 3410 m long and 60 m wide.
I was visiting the international terminal that was small and old fashion but extremely efficient; the luggage came fast, the entry passport control worked perfectly and even the taxi service in to the centre of Saint Petersburg.
When we left again the check-in when easy and so did the security control. The duty-free was large and prices were cheap and in euro.
