My family and I will arrive at Leningradsky station (Moscow) from St Petersburg using the overnight Red Arrow Express / Grand Express. To be precise, the Red Arrow № 001А «Красная стрела» arrives at 0756 Hrs, the Grand Express № 053Ч «ГРАНД ЭКСПРЕСС» arrives at 0814 Hrs.
My outbound flight is from Domodevedo airport at 1235 Hrs. Which leaves me roughly 4h30m to reach Domododevo airport. The plan is to exit the station and leave directly for the airport.
Can you folks advise me what would be the best way to reach Domodedevo airport ? As I see it I have 2 options:
1) Take a taxi from Leningradsky station. Since it is around 0830 Hrs, I expect peak time traffic. How long will it take me to reach the airport by taxi?
2) Take a metro to Paveletskaya station, and then the aeroexpress to the airport. This means dragging 3 heavy suitcases (and self) through the turnstiles and the heavily crowded metros.
So amongst these 2 options, which is the best option? Is there a third option?
