Many air­lines fly di­rect to St. Peters­burg’s Pulkovo air­port from the UK and Europe, in­clud­ing Bri­tish Air­ways, KLM, Air France, Swiss Air and Aeroflot. If you are com­ing from Amer­ica, Canada, Asia or Aus­tralia, you will have to fly via Moscow or a Euro­pean city. The air­port lies 17 km south of the city. For an in­de­pen­dent trav­eller, the safest way to get to your ac­com­mo­da­tion is to get an au­tho­rised taxi – the Pul­v­cho firm is rec­om­mended. They have a large desk as you come through cus­toms, and there is a smaller booth out­side on the pave­ment. They of­fer a ‘limo’ ser­vice and a ‘reg­u­lar’ one which is cheaper. Costs in 2016 were €20 or 1600 Rou­bles.
