Organization of passenger railway traffic St. Petersburg-Vitebsky - Pulkovo Airport

Project Status: 
Организация пассажирского железнодорожного сообщения Санкт-Петербург-Витебский — Аэропорт «Пулково»

The project of organizing the passenger railway communication St. Petersburg-Vitebsky - Pulkovo Airport was developed by Lengiprotrans in the 2010s.

The Aeroexpress route will run from Pulkovo airport to Vitebsk railway station with a mandatory stop at Kupchino station, which will help to include the blue metro line in the route. The travel time of the electric trains will be 25 minutes.

The project involves the construction of 8 km of new railways and the use of 16 km of existing ones. In the direction of the airport and back, at least 39 pairs of trains will be launched per day. The possible increase in passenger traffic at Pulkovo Airport by 2040 to 30-40 million people is taken into account.
