Ryanair to Launch Six New Routes From Prague

Ryanair is set to introduce a fourth aircraft at Prague Airport for the upcoming winter season, along with the launch of six new routes.

During the winter season, Ryanair will extend its routes from Prague to include Catania, East Midlands, Gdansk, Malaga, Seville, and Tirana. It will also boost the number of flights on 12 other routes, such as Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, and Rome.

The company’s addition of a fourth aircraft to its Prague Airport base represents an investment of approximately CZK 2.3 billion and will generate 30 new jobs.

Jiří Vyskoč, the Executive Director of Air Business Development at Prague Airport, expressed enthusiasm, stating, “Prague Airport is delighted with Ryanair’s expansion in Prague, offering new destinations and additional based aircraft. We are particularly pleased that this growth continues into the winter season, providing passengers with more direct flight options to and from our airport.”

Ryanair’s Jason McGuinness also commented, saying, “Ryanair is delighted to offer Prague customers even more choices and lower fares this winter, with 27 routes, including six exciting new ones.”

Winter Season in the Czech Republic

Smartwings has also recently unveiled its plans for the winter season, which will include direct connections from Czech airports to over 20 destinations.

From Prague, travelers can expect routes to destinations like Dubai, Spain, the Canary Islands, and now Antalya, Turkey. According to spokesperson Vladimíra Dufková, Smartwings currently has 25 aircraft based at Czech Republic airports.

Additionally, CSA, part of the Smartwings group, will begin flying to Yerevan, Armenia, from October.

In the first half of this year, Prague Airport handled 5.8 million passengers, marking a 36% year-on-year increase. However, despite this growth, the airport has not yet matched the figures from the pre-pandemic year of 2019 when it served 7.8 million passengers in the first half of the year.

According to Czech Air Traffic Control, there was a 12.2% growth in traffic, with 268,765 flights in the first half of the year.
