CSA Czech Airlines expands in the Ukraine; connects Prague with Lviv
CSA Czech Airlines arrived in Poprad-Tatry with its ATR42, connecting the Slovakian airport with its Prague hub.
- CSA Czech Airlines continued rearranging its network as the airline launched two new routes from its Prague (PRG) hub in the last week, both with its fleet of 46-seat ATR42s. Following the airline’s most recently launched Ukrainian route to Donetsk last week, the SkyTeam airline on 27 April added Lviv (LWO) in western Ukraine to its network. Flights now operate four times a week to the airport that currently is going through works on the runway and, as a consequence of the restrictions therefore applying, recently has seen capacity reductions and route withdrawals. On 1 May, the airline launched flights to Poprad-Tatry (TAT) in the mountains of neighbouring Slovakia, close to the border to Poland. The three weekly flights are currently the only scheduled commercial services at the airport. Both of the two routes have been operated by CSA Czech Airlines before. The airline served Lviv 1992-1994, having taken over the route after Aeroflot pulled out. Air Ukraine also operated between the cities in 1993-1994, but the route has remained unserved since. Prague was last connected with Poprad-Tatry in 2002-2003 when the route was operated by SkyEurope and prior to that in 1996-1997 by Air Ostrava, which took over the route after CSA Czech Airlines’ withdrawal in 1995.
