Climate Protection

Notice

Current Information and Recommendation for Passengers:

Information on the airport's protective measures, prevention, testing and other important information for travelling can be found HERE.

ALERT: According to the Czech Government regulation, please wear a FFP2 respirator when inside the airport. Thank you for protecting yourselves and those around you.

If you are flying from Prague, you can travel to the airport through different districts of the Czech Republic based on the exception for travelling outside the country. However, you must present an official form by the Czech Ministry of Interior together with a flight ticket reservation, a boarding pass or a confirmation of accommodation.

We ask passengers flying to Amsterdam who wish to undergo a mandatory antigen test to arrive at the airport at least three (3) hours before their scheduled departure. More information HERE.

To review all conditions to travel to the Czech Republic, please visit the Ministry of Interior of the Czech Republic’s website.

Airport Carbon Accreditation

The main objective of the Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) initiative is to support airport operators in their attempts to minimise the production of greenhouse gases from airport activities. Currently, 173 airports worldwide are certified under the ACA programme, annually mapping their carbon footprint and implementing procedures aimed at its reduction. A carbon footprint is the total set of greenhouse gas emission caused by an entity expressed as carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalent.

All airports are not equally active in their attempts at reducing greenhouse gas emission from their operations. Therefore, the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme is divided into four levels, such as mapping of the carbon footprint, its reduction and management towards a reduced carbon footprint, optimisation involving third party engagement and carbon neutrality, i.e. a zero carbon footprint.

Advancing into Level 3 of the programme, Prague Airport has joined the group of 22 important European airports, including, for example, Frankfurt, Munich, Zurich, Copenhagen and Athens.

Implemented Projects

Letiště Praha se v roce 2012 zavázalo do roku 2016 snížit svoji uhlíkovou stopu o 9 % oproti roku 2009. Proto určilo projekty s potenciálem úspory energií – emisí CO2.

Carbon footprint is observed in three SCOPES:

SCOPE 1 = direct emissions from airport operations, e.g. fuel and natural gas consumption, emissions from wastewater treatment, losses of coolants during AC use, etc.

SCOPE 2 = indirect emissions from electricity consumption originating outside of the airport as a direct result of airport activities.

SCOPE 3 = additional indirect emissions originating as a result of airport operations, but not subject to airport ownership and control, including emissions produced during individual flight phases – approach, landing, taxing and take-off (i.e. the LTO cycle), emissions from transport of passengers to/from the airport, employee business trips, use of airport ground machinery, apron operations, etc.
