Getting to St. Petersburg


St. Petersburg is served by twin airports Pulkovo 1 and Pulkovo 2. The latter, located 10.5 miles south of town, handles most international flights. The official IATA airport code, LED, is a reminder of the city’s Soviet-era name, Leningrad.


There are no nonstop U.S. to St. Petersburg. Russian Aeroflot connects “Piter” to New York, Los Angeles and Washington through Moscow. European carriers like Air France or Lufthansa serve St. Pete from the U.S. via their national hubs.
