The German low-cost airline headquartered in Düsseldorf and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Lufthansa Group Eurowings is the first air carrier to resume partially regular operations after a break of more than six weeks.
Airbus A319 took off from Düsseldorf, Germany yesterday at 18:25, and landed in Prague on Sunday, May 3 at 19:17.
At the moment, Eurowings schedules two flights a week, except on Sundays on Thursdays. From June 1, the carrier expects two flights per day.
Another carrier is returning to Prague tomorrow: KLM’s Embraer E-175 will arrive in the morning and fly to Amsterdam every day.
Other carriers, on the other hand, continue to postpone the start of flights from Prague.
British Airways, which originally planned to resume flights on May 1, will start selling tickets on June 1 at the earliest.
Ryanair and easyJet postponed the launch to May 22, although the companies announced over the weekend that a larger number of flights is not expected until July.
Only Belavia to Minsk and Bulgaria Air to Sofia maintained regular flights in Prague during the pandemic.
