Northern Capital Air Gateway consortium has commenced preparations for the construction of a new terminal at St Petersburg Pulkovo Airport, to replace terminals 1 and 2 (The St Petersburg Times, 01-Oct-2010). The new terminal is expected to be completed by Dec-2013. The consortium is also in talks with at least 20 international airlines to launch flights from the airport in 2011. Consortium head, Sergei Edmin, stated the 70 airlines that operate from the airport are not enough for the city. It plans to introduce a system of discounts for airlines to operate flights outside peak hours and launch services to particular destinations.
