This Monday, October 16, Czech national carrier Czech Airlines (ČSA) celebrated its 85-years anniversary. Today the airline operates scheduled flights into many major European cities and into transit airports located in North America, North Africa and Asia – in total about 70 destinations in more than 40 different countries of the world. It also provides cargo and charter services.

ČeskoSlovenské Aerolinie was founded on October 6, 1923 according to decision of Czechoslovak government. The first flight – from Prague to Bratislava – was performed in the end of October the same year. And the first international flight – from Prague to Zagreb – took place in 1930. In 1939, when Czechoslovakia was occupied by Nazy Germany, the company’s evolution was disturbed and was renewed only in the late 1940s.

Since 1937 ČSA is based at Ruzyně International Airport, which is now one of the largest hubs in Europe (in 2007 it received over 5.6 million passengers). Czech Airlines 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.
