“After a very successful and record-setting year in 2016, not only have we managed to keep a very broad offer of destinations, but we have even expanded it by nine new cities,” Václav Řehoř, Chairman of the Prague Airport Board of Directors, shared about the new flight schedule. He also noted that this year the airport expects that it might exceed the 8% year-on-year passenger number growth it generated in 2016.
Among the planned long-haul flights from Prague, there are 10 air carriers servicing connections to cities such as Toronto, Seoul, New York, Dubai or Shanghai.
At the beginning of May, the British air carrier Flybe will introduce flights to London Southend airport. As a result, Prague will gain a direct connection to the fifth airport in London, which will be serviced five times a week. Later in the same month, a Georgian air carrier, Georgian Airlines, will introduce a service with a direct scheduled connection between Prague and its home capital, Tbilisi. This route will be operated twice a week.
According to the International Air Transport Association, Václav Havel Airport Prague belongs to a group of the world’s most developing airports. It recorded a record 13 million passengers in 2016.
