CSA Czech Airlines, one of the key airlines in Eastern Europe, is expanding its presence in Ukraine. On April 27, 2011, the company announced the launch of new flights on the route Prague-Lviv-Prague. It is worth noting that it is the second route in Ukraine, which was opened by CSA Czech Airlines. Prior to that the airline introduced a new route, which connects Prague and Donetsk.
CSA Czech Airlines flights will be carried out 4 days per week. For the main Czech airline new flight to Lviv was a return to the lost positions. In 1992-1994, the airline took the niche vacated after Aeroflot left Ukrainian market.
Another restored route for CSA was re-opening of flights to Poprad, Slovak city and the capital of the High Tatras region. CSA presented this route on May 1, 2011. Prior to CSA Prague-Poprad-Prague direction was served by low-cost carriers: former SkyEurope and Air Ostrava.
Opening of new CSA routes was a part of major restructuring of the airline. Currently under consideration is inclusion of CSA in the same state holding company that manages the airport of Prague in Ruzyn.
As part of the reorganization CSA Czech Airlines stopped a number of flights. So, the company left the UK market, which was its seventh market by passenger traffic. Czech Airlines also refused to service flights to Turkey and Ireland.
To date, three major markets for the Czech Airlines in terms of traffic are Germany, Russia and Italy. And for the past year Russian and Italian routes showed growth, while Germany's position weakened.
