First Direct Flight from Prague to Abu Dhabi Took Off on February 1
On February 1, 2024, the first flight of a new charter route from Prague to Abu Dhabi took off at 10:20 from Václav Havel Airport.
Operated by Smartwings with a Boeing 737 MAX, the route is for Der Touristik group, encompassing travel agencies Fischer and Exim Tours. The weekly flights to the United Arab Emirates capital will run until early May.
The UAE is a popular destination for Czech travelers, with over 100,000 passengers using the connection last year.
Der Touristik considers Abu Dhabi, known for its safety and attractions like the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and entertainment parks, a valuable addition to Prague’s airport offerings.
“The United Arab Emirates has long been very popular with Czech passengers: last year more than 100,000 people used the air service between the UAE and Prague. The new connection with the country’s capital will expand the offer to another interesting destination from our airport,” said Jaroslav Filip, spokesman for Prague Air Harbour.
The flight duration will be about 7 hours.
It is not possible to buy tickets for the flight. They are available only as part of FISCHER or Exim Tours packages.
It should be noted that today direct scheduled flights between Prague and the UAE are operated by Emirates, Smartwings and flydubai.
All of them fly to Dubai. In turn, FISCHER Tours also offers charter flights to the emirate of Ras al-Khaimah. Now Abu Dhabi has been added to these destinations.
