A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at Aarhus Airport on 11 May, officially opening Czech Airlines’ new service from Prague. Among those taking part in the celebrations on the apron at Aarhus were: David Surley, Head of Airline Relations, Aarhus Airport (left); Peter Høgsberg, CEO Aarhus Airport (third-left); Jiri Brodsky, Czech Ambassador to the Kingdom of Denmark (second-right); and Claus Wistoft, Mayor of Syddjurs Municipality (right), along with part of the first flight crew. Facing no direct competition, the 729-kilometre route will be flown four times weekly.

  • Czech Airlines has added a further two European airports to its string of recently added destinations from Prague (PRG) this week, with the SkyTeam member starting flights to Aarhus (AAR) and Lisbon (LIS). Launched 10 May, flights to the Portuguese capital will be flown on the airline’s A319s, while Aarhus, which commenced on 11 May, will be flown on the carrier’s ATR 72-500s, according to OAG schedules. While flights on the 729-kilometre sector to Aarhus will face no direct competition, the carrier’s new 2,227-kilometre link to Lisbon will go head-to-head with TAP Portugal which already offers eight weekly flights.
