Prague Reconnects with Beijing: Direct Flights Resume After Four Years

After a four-year hiatus due to the global pandemic, Prague has restored its direct air link with Beijing.

This route will now operate three times a week, all year round, as announced by Prague Airport spokeswoman Klára Divíšková.

In 2019, over 1.7 million tourists from Asia visited the Czech Republic, but that number dropped to 776,000 last year.

“I firmly believe that the renewed direct route to Beijing will stimulate inbound tourism from China. The connection to Beijing offers a great opportunity for Czech tourists to explore not only the Chinese capital but also the rest of China and Asia, thanks to connecting flights,” said Jiří Pos, Chairman of the Board of Prague Airport.

Hainan Airlines will operate flights to Beijing on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays using Airbus A330 aircraft.

Tourists from distant destinations, including China, often travel around Europe. From the Czech Republic, they visit Austria, Germany, France, and Italy. “It’s logical; if they are already taking a long flight, they want to experience more destinations. This direct connection will ultimately benefit European tourism as a whole,” added the Director of the Czech Tourism Centre – CzechTourism.

Hainan Airlines, established in January 1993 in Hainan Province, China’s largest special economic zone and free trade port, is one of China’s fastest-growing airlines. It aims to provide passengers with comprehensive, hassle-free, and high-quality services.

“Currently, Hainan Airlines operates more than 40 international and regional routes from China, serving passengers from Beijing, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Haikou, Chongqing, Xi’an, Changsha, Taiyuan, Dalian, Guangzhou, and Hangzhou.
