Munich Airport’s Alexander Schroll, Director Traffic Development, welcomed the crew operating Czech Airlines’ inaugural service from Prague with traditional gingerbread hearts. The Czech airline last operated to the Bavarian capital more than two years ago.
- Czech Airlines, which dropped its last long-haul service in October 2009 and last Far Eastern route in May 2006, returned to the long-haul market last week with the launch of twice-weekly services on the route from its Prague (PRG) hub to Seoul Incheon (ICN) on 1 June. A330-300s are used to operate the route, on which Czech Airlines competes with fellow SkyTeam member Korean Air’s four-weekly flights. In addition, on the same day, the carrier commenced flights on the route from the Czech capital to Munich (MUC) in southern Germany, a route it previously served until October 2010. Czech Airlines now offers 18 weekly flights using ATR72s in this market, competing with Lufthansa’s four-daily schedule.
