“Our annual flight schedule is being revised, we are still working on it,” said the airline’s spokeswoman Olga Pavlonka.
Flights to Bologna, Liverpool, Manchester, Eindhoven, Bournemouth, Barcelona, Oman, Paphos, Corfu, and Rhodes have disappeared from the airline reservation system.
Among the other 23 routes remained, for example, connections with Copenhagen, Denmark, Thessaloniki, Edinburgh, Scotland, or Bergamo.
The global covid-19 pandemic, which has been going on for a year, brought aviation into crisis last year. As a result, airlines face challenges around the world due to significant travel restrictions. Last year, Vaclav Havel Airport carried 79 percent fewer passengers than in 2019.
In June, the Czech group Smartwings announced layoffs that should affect up to six hundred CSA employees. German Eurowings has agreed with unions to guarantee job retention in exchange for a slight reduction in wages.
Throughout the course of 2020, a total of 3,665,871 passengers passed through the gates of Václav Havel Airport Prague.
The operation of the airport was unprecedented due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in particular the related restrictions on travel and the worldwide decline in demand for flying. As a result, 79% fewer passengers were handled in Prague compared to 2019.
