The winter flight schedule at Vaclav Havel Airport becomes effective. It will provide flights to 114 destinations in 42 countries.
“Despite the dense network of existing direct flights from Prague, we will introduce several new and attractive destinations that will be included in the upcoming winter flight schedule. These are Amman in Jordan, Marrakesh in Morocco and Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates. New flights to these destinations prove that we have been successfully expanding our network with destinations outside of Europe, which is the path that we want to continue taking in the future,” says Vaclav Rehor, the Chairman of the Prague Airport Board.
Sixty airlines will operate regular flights from Prague during the winter season and two of them, Air Arabia and Cyprus Airways, will appear on Prague’s winter schedule for the very first time.
The busiest country with regard to the number of destinations, even in winter, is the UK, where 16 different destinations are offered, including all major international London airports, which are serviced by direct flights from Prague. The second busiest country is France (10 destinations), followed by Italy (9 destinations), Spain (9 destinations) and Russia (8 destinations).
New destinations in the 2018-2019 winter season schedule include: Kutaisi (Wizzair), Marrakesh (Ryanair), Amman (Ryanair), Belfast (easyJet), Sharjah (Air Arabia), Pisa (Ryanair), Split (CSA/SmartWings), Dubrovnik(CSA/SmartWings), Paris/Beauvais (Ryanair), Larnaca (Cyprus Airways).

As usual, the largest number of passengers traveling from Prague went to UK. The country with the highest increase in the number of checked-in passengers was Spain and for individual destinations, it was Barcelona.
