Scheduled passenger flights started after WWII. The airport was renamed to Pulkovo Airport in 1973. Nowadays it is a hub for Transaero and Rossiya Airlines.

The interior of the airport is impressive, with the curvy ceiling symbolizing the water surface of the Neva River and Angel sculptures shaped as girls with plane wings on their backs.
