When you book a flight from St. Petersburg to Bangkok with Qatar Airways you’ll be in for a real treat. We specialise in making air travel a delight, with all the comforts and luxury facilities you expect from an award-winning airline. Dine on delectable cuisine and choose from a fine selection of superior services from the comfort of your spacious, seat on your flight to Russia’s old imperial capital.
Built up from literally nothing in the middle of a swamp by Peter the Great, St. Petersburg today is a dazzling, multi-faceted metropolis and home to great artistic and cultural treasures. Fine-tuned down the centuries by Europe’s leading architects, its magnificent buildings include the famous Hermitage museum and Marinsky Theatre. With 342 bridges, the Venice of the North is also supremely beautiful in its own right, and packed with great shopping precincts and brimming with restaurants, beautiful theatres and centuries-old monuments.
23km south of St. Petersburg city centre is where you’ll find the newly refurbished Pulkovo Airport. This expansive location is the third busiest airport in Russia and an internationally important departure and arrival point for leisure and business travellers to one of Russia’s key cities.
Book a flight from St. Petersburg with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover that this is a pleasant and friendly airport where staff go out of their way to make the start of your journey memorable and enjoyable.
In 2014 a new terminal opened, increasing the airport’s capacity and providing new facilities, particularly for business travellers.
Transportation and parking
Transport to and from the airport into the centre of St. Petersburg is well served by a network of public transport and taxis. City buses number 39, 39A and minibus K39 run from the airport to the Moskovskaya metro station, where passengers can connect to Metro line 2 running to and from the city centre.
The K39 minibus also stops at the Aeroport commuter rail station, where passengers can take a train to Saint Petersburg's Baltiysky Station. Taxis are plentiful and prices are fixed depending on the zone you are travelling from. The journey from the city centre to the airport can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and a half, depending on the time of day you travel.
Peak time traffic can be terrible, so allow yourself extra time if you are travelling during the morning and evening rush hours.

Not only a beloved destination by the adventurous travellers and ‘backpackers,’ but it’s also a wonderful destination for the more discerning, luxury travellers.
Whether you’re looking for ancient temples, bustling markets, lively nightlife or absolute luxury, you’ll find it in Bangkok.
Many of the city’s best known sights can be found in the historic centre within the Rattanakosin district.
The most spectacular attraction is the Grand Palace, which was once home to the King of Thailand and today offers visitors a rich mixture of history and architectural splendour.
Within the palace grounds you’ll also discover Thailand’s holiest temple, Wat Phra Kaew. Other highlights in Rattanakosin include the large reclining Buddha statue at Wat Pho and the Thai-European fusion of Wat Ratchabophit.
Other popular districts worth exploring during your trip to Bangkok include Siam Square for sheer high-end luxury shopping, and Silom for its bustling entertainment venues.
For a very different perspective on the city and a more relaxing way to see the sights, go for a cruise down the Phraya River.
