As of Sunday, October 28, 2018, the winter flight schedule at Václav Havel Airport Prague becomes effective. It will provide flights from the airport to 114 destinations in 42 countries. New additions will include Belfast, Marrakesh, Amman, Sharjah, Pisa, Split, and Dubrovnik. Altogether, Prague Airport will fly to 10 new destinations during the winter season.
“Despite the dense network of existing direct flights from Prague, we will introduce several new and attractive destinations that will be included in the upcoming winter flight schedule. These are Amman in Jordan, Marrakesh in Morocco and Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates. New flights to these destinations prove that we have been successfully expanding our network with destinations outside of Europe, which is the path that we want to continue taking in the future,” said Vaclav Rehor, Chairman of the Prague Airport Board.
Sixty airlines will operate regular flights from Prague during the winter season and two of them, Air Arabia and Cyprus Airways, will appear on Prague’s winter schedule for the very first time.
In addition to opening new lines and destinations, Václav Havel Airport Prague will also increase the frequency and capacities of existing lines. Qatar Airways will operate one of its daily flights to Doha in a long-haul Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which will increase the overall capacity by approximately 46%. The frequency will be increased on flights to London/Heathrow, London/City, Moscow and Riga.
The busiest country with regard to the number of destinations, even in winter, is the UK, where 16 different destinations are offered, including all major international London airports, which are serviced by direct flights from Prague.
