Major Airports in the Czech Republic

The Czech Republic is a very popular tourist destination, so naturally it attracts crowds of people arriving there not only using terrestial means of transportation but also by air. The largest Czech airport is situated in Prague, not only because it is the capital city of the country, but also due to the fact that the majority of visitors start their Czech vacations namely in Prague.

Prague Ruzyně International Airport (PRG), which means that it has customs and immigration services to handle foreigners, who has to pass visa control, is a modern facility having a capacity to receive up to 100,000 passengers per week. Both domestic and worldwide flights are made from this airport. It is located to the north of Prague and consists of three terminals – North (the main one), South 1 and South 2. Buses, minivans and people carriers shuttle from the airport to the city, taxis are also easily available. There is also a railway station there and four-star hotel for transit passengers and business travelers.

There are two more airports in the Czech Republic receiving European and international flights - Brno-Turany Airport (BRQ) opened in 1958 and Karlovy Vary International Airport (KLV) built in the early 1930s. They are not so important as Ruzyně International, but nonetheless they operate quite many tourist destinations especially during summertime and have rather good prospects.

There are some minor airports in the country as well - Mariánské Láznì Skláře (MKA), Olomouc (OLO), Ostrava (OSR), Přerov (PRV), Prešov (POV), Zabreh Benesov (ZBE) and others – but they are used mostly for domestic and cargo carrying purposes and do not operate regular international flights.

The national carrier called Czech Airlines (ČSA, České aerolinie) was founded on October 6, 1923. Nowadays it is based at Ruzyně International Airport and operates scheduled flights to 69 destinations in 41 countries, including most large European cities and transit airports in the Middle East and North America. Czech Airlines also provide charter and cargo services. Its fleet (as of June 2008) consists of 4 Airbuses A310-300, 5 Airbuses A319-100, 8 Airbuses A320-200, 2 Airbuses A321-200, 10 Boeings 737-400, 10 Boeings 737-500 and other jets.
