Czech Airlines launches new Russian route to Ufa from Prague

As Czech Airlines arrived in Ufa, the Russian city got a link with a destination in the European Union. The SkyTeam carrier is the third airline from outside the CIS to serve Ufa. Celebrating the launch were Andrey Bykovsky, Deputy-Chairman of republic of Bashkortostan Transport State Committee, and Irgi Svoboda, Czech Airlines’ Regional Director of Sales for Russia and CIS.

  • CSA Czech Airlines continued expanding its Eastern European network by adding its sixth Russian destination on 28 March. The SkyTeam airline now flies twice-weekly from its Prague (PRG) hub to Ufa (UFA), the capital of the Bashkir Republic west of the Ural Mountains, with 128-seat A319 aircraft. This makes Czech Airlines’ the third non-CIS airline to serve Ufa after Turkish Airlines and flydubai. With the new route, Prague also becomes the only point in the European Union with a scheduled link to Ufa. Jiří Marek, Czech Airlines’ VP Sales and Marketing, commented: “We have declared repeatedly that Czech Airlines will increasingly focus on markets in the post-Soviet region, where there is significant long-term potential.” He continued: “The new route between Prague and Ufa is the next step in the fulfilment of our strategy and the transformation of our carriage network.”
