Letiště Praha, a. s. (hereinafter referred to as “Prague Airport” or the “Company”), is a business entity which performs the role of the operator of the most important international airport in the Czech Republic. Concurrently, Prague Airport associates companies active in the field of air transport and related ground-handling services within the area of the Prague/Ruzyně international airport.

Václav Havel Airport Prague enjoys the status of one of Europe's fastest growing airports in the category of 10 to 25 million passengers handled. Pre-pandemic, this international air hub used to handle over 15 million passengers annually. Currently, due to the COVID-19 disease, there are over four million passengers handled per year. Throughout the year, passengers are able to choose from the offer of almost 50 airlines connecting Prague directly with more than 120 destinations around the world. Furthermore, eight regular cargo carriers and dozens of companies providing charter flights operate from the airport. Prague Airport employs approximately 2,300 workers, with an estimated more than 14,000 additional people being employed by companies active at the airport or linked to its operations.
Prague Airport, joint stock company, was established in February 2008 as part of the privatization transformation from the state-owned company Správa Letiště Praha, s.p. From 2011 until 2018, Prague Airport, joint stock company, was incorporated in the holding structure of the Czech Aeroholding Group. In 2018, the Group structure was simplified. Within the framework of a merger, selected holding companies, including Czech Aeroholding, were dissolved and their assets were transferred to the successor company Prague Airport. The Company bodies comprise a four-member Board of Directors and a six-member Supervisory Board.
In its activities, Prague Airport works closely with the Ministry of Transport of the Czech Republic, the Civil Aviation Authority, the Air Navigation Services of the Czech Republic, air carriers, public authorities inside and outside the aviation sector, and other users of the airport. Last but not least, it also works closely with the Capital City of Prague and with the municipalities situated in the vicinity of the airport.
