Allegro double formation train to depart from St. Petersburg to Helsinki on 29 April 2017


In order to meet the increased demand for transportation between Russian and Finland in the run up to the May 2017 holidays, Russian Railways will be laying on a double-formation international high-speed Allegro train with twice the normal number of carriages from St. Petersburg to Helsinki.

On 29 April 2017, high-speed Allegro train No. 781 will depart with a double formation from St. Petersburg at 06:40 and arrive in Helsinki at 10:07 later the same day.

Four pairs of Allegro trains normally run daily between St. Petersburg - Helsinki:

  • 781 departs from St. Petersburg at 06:40 and arrives in Helsinki at 10:07;
  • 783 departs from St. Petersburg at 11:30 and arrives in Helsinki at 14:57;
  • 785 departs from St. Petersburg at 15:30 and arrives in Helsinki at 18:57;
  • 787 departs from St. Petersburg at 20:30 and arrives in Helsinki at 10:07.

The Allegro consists of 7 carriages and has a maximum operating speed of 220 kph. The train employs tilt technology, which allows the train to lean 8 degrees from the vertical to enable it to take curves without reducing speed and neutralise the effect of centrifugal force on the passengers.

The train's equipment meets the technical requirements of the EU and Russia.

On the territory of Russia, tickets go on sale for Allegro services 60 days before train departure. Passengers can buy tickets at all specialised ticket offices and terminals working with international trains.

All border and customs formalities are carried out on the Allegro train en route.

Passengers crossing the state border between Russia and Finland must have a valid passport and visa.
