    let me know if

    Can you please check a part of my letter?

    "Please let me know, if you are leaving Moscow for St.Petersburg and back, while your stay in Moscow from Dec 1 to Dec 22. If yes, then please send me your travel details to pick you up from the airport."

    The situation: My friend is coming to Moscow in December. She told me, that maybe she would travel to St. Petersburg in the middle of December. I will be there on my vacation and we may meet.

    Re: let me know if

    So, i will put it down as follows:
    "Please let me know if you are leaving Moscow for St.Petersburg and back when you stay in Moscow from Dec 1 to Dec 22. If so, then please send me your travel details so that I can pick you up from the airport."

    one more question: Can I say "...during your stay in Moscow..." instead of "...when you stay in Moscow..."?

    In other contexts, yes. Not here, because your friend is not arriving and leaving during the stay, but at the beginning and end of it.

    Re: let me know if

    Is there any difference between "from the airport" and "at the airport" ? The second makes more sense to me.
    Thank you very much !
