New Astana, Tallinn, Florence, Verona Flights from Prague Airport

Prague Airport announced that it will increase its primary relationship networking starting from the last day of March, introducing innovative locations including Astana, Tallinn, Florence, and Verona. This summer trip plan will be served by a total of 68 companies, providing services to 167 sites. Additionally, Prague Airport will launch new connections to sought- after vacation spots like Brindisi, Izmir, La Palma, and Ponta Delgada.
Prague Airport will provide almost 90 % of the travel options and carriers for the most recent year in 2019. In the upcoming year, Prague Airport will be focusing on expanding air connections to Asia and North America, with negotiations currently underway with airlines to establish regular routes to Hanoi, Beijing, Delhi, Bangkok, and New York. These locations have strong potential for both inbound travel and various traveler segments, including business and cargo transportation.
Prague Airport intends to increase the frequency of flights on over thirty routes. Maximum of 93 weekly flights to London and 59 connections to Antalya will now be handled at the airport. Passengers will have the option to choose from up to 57 flights to Paris, up to 54 flights to Amsterdam, and 40 weekly connections to Milan. Additionally, direct routes to destinations like Barcelona, Oslo, Marseille, and Copenhagen will have an increased number of connections.
More Capacity
Qatar Airways will enhance its regular connection to Doha, Qatar by deploying the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, resulting in a significant increase in the number of weekly flights ( 10 times ) and seat capacity. This summer season, there will be over 12.8 million seats available, marking a 16 percent growth compared to the previous summer season. Korean Air will resume its four weekly flights between Prague and Seoul starting in April with a cutting-edge Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
By the end of 2025 or early 2026, airport is anticipated to have a capacity of more than 1.5 million passengers this year, and the airport is projected to return to pre-pandemic passenger levels. However, due to the war in Ukraine, over 1.5 million passengers are still missing and the connectivity of sixteen destinations from Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus is disrupted. Taking this into account, the airport’s performance can be considered at 100 percent of the 2019 figures.
New Carriers
This summer, Prague Airport will have more than 100 new airlines joining its network. Qanot Sharq Airlines will establish a connection between Prague and Tashkent, SCAT Airlines will launch direct flights to Astana, Arkia will fly to Tel Aviv, and KM Malta will offer flights to Malta.
Airport Charges
Due to the busy summertime flight schedule, Václav Havel Airport Prague’s departure passenger service fee has also been changed. In 2023, despite increasing inflation, the airport charges remained unchanged. However, in 2024, there has been an overall increase of approximately five percent on average. Specifically, the Departing Passenger Service Charge has increased by 5.8 percent, from 659 crowns to 697 crowns, which already includes the PRM charge of 15 crowns. Higher operating costs, such as those incurred by inflation, and higher personnel costs, according to this increase. Despite these adjustments, our airport fees are still below the market average in comparison to 20 other airports in Europe.
