    Pulkovo - LED etc

    one would assume so. because codes are international. and i do not think the traffic controllers around the world will want to learn everything new. but what about the pilots?

    well it looks like the Russians are just following other airports....https://kurier.at/wirtschaft/soll-de...ssen/400514386 and instead of - Vienna International Airport- I might be flying to - Niki Lauda Airport-. Did not even know that an AUSTRALIAN *no typo* investment consortium had their money there...

    well, i do not smoke so i am no expert. but i have read that is not the ,clean, tobacco that would be the killer. but all the chemicals in the cigarettes, the Aceton in the filters. and the other gunk they put in there to make it good smelling and not - stinking-.

    Not so much the pronunciation, just the name itself. Its not as if Krasnodar has more than one airport. I also wonder (briefly) why they chose as the new name Екатерины II when they could have used the historical name Екатеринода́р. Still, what is life without change.
