Czech Airlines commences Prague quartet

Czech Airlines commenced services to Birmingham from Prague on 22 April, a route which will operate five times weekly. To celebrate, the airport welcomed the inaugural flight with a fantastic cake depicting the Charles Bridge which is located in Prague. Showcasing the culinary delight are David Vitásek, Area Sales Manager for Czech Airlines and William Pearson, Aviation Development Director for Birmingham Airport, along with the crew of the inaugural flight.

Zagreb Airport welcomed the arrival of Czech Airlines’ inaugural service from Prague on 27 April. Posing with the crew on arrival are: Dalibor Malek, Regional Manager, Czech Airlines; Adam Poustak, Czech Airlines; and Igor Hrenčević, Zagreb Airport Duty Manager. Cutting the cake is: Lea Nosetić, GSA for Croatia; Ivana Akmadžić, Zagreb Airport Ground Handling MD; and Malek.

Czech Airlines launched services from Prague to Odessa and Kazan on 27 April. Both routes will be operated by the airline’s fleet of A319s according to OAG Schedules Analyser data.

  • Czech Airlines has inaugurated four routes from its Prague (PRG) base over the past two weeks, starting on 22 April with services to Birmingham (BHX). Commenting on the launch of services to the UK’s second city, William Pearson, Birmingham Airport’s Aviation Development Director, said: “We are delighted to welcome Czech Airlines as a new partner, serving Prague five times a week. This direct route, which was unserved from Birmingham, gives passengers the chance to visit this picturesque city, for either business or leisure at very reasonable prices.” The 1,138-kilometre sector will be operated onboard the SkyTeam member’s fleet of A319s. Czech Airlines’ only other route to the UK this summer is to Liverpool, a service it launched last July. Of the carrier’s four new routes, none will face direct competition. The average sector length of the routes is 1,330 kilometres. See how Birmingham Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
