Ruzyně Airport To Be Sold Next Year

The Czech News Agency (ČTK) informed yesterday that the Prague Ruzyně International Airport (PRG) management intends to invest more than Kc 2.3 billion into development of its infrastructure and extension of its capacity. Spokeswoman Eva Krejci reported that the management would purchase land and premises needed for expansion.

It is expected that such enhancements will raise the airport’s value on the eve of its privatization (denationalisation) scheduled for the second half of 2009. The director of the airport Miroslav Dvorak said: "Representatives of firms that are interested in the purchase of the airport welcome the fact that we increase its potential and the quality level.”

Ruzyně International (home to the national carrier Czech Airlines) is the largest airport in the country operating both international and domestic flights. It is able to receive up to 100,000 passengers per week. But nonetheless, recently there occurred the strong necessity to construct a new runway, which is very important for the airport’s development in the nearest future.
