In connection with the large number of aircraft arrivals at Pulkovo 1 Airport during the Forum, it is imperative that the strictly coordinated slots for aircraft arrival and departure to/from Pulkovo 1 Airport be filled. In the event the slot is violated, the airport has the right not to receive the aircraft and to direct it to a backup airfield to await a possible time to permit arrival on a first-come, first-served basis. We will be able to ensure and service for arrival and departure no more than 8–10 Forum participant aircraft per hour. In connection with this, we ask that you coordinate your flights well in advance.

We also recommend that participants who are arriving on charter flights use Helsinki-Vantaa Airport in Finland. You can leave your aeroplane in a hangar at one of the airport’s terminals and then make use of the road or rail links to St. Petersburg. More information about airport car rental is available here. More detailed information on the facilities available at Helsinki International Airport can be found here.
