Our corporate philanthropy policy primarily focuses on the airport’s immediate surroundings and local communities. However, we also wish to use our resources in support of projects outside the area. In the non-profit sector, we see our contribution in partnerships rather than passive subventions. We place great emphasis on the active involvement of our employees in the decision-making process, thus showing them our appreciation of their contribution to successful operations of the company, the vital condition for all Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities.
People in Need Organisation – Our Long-Term Partner
People in Need, helping those in need both locally and internationally, has been our long-term partner in our support of the non-profit sector for their guarantees of well-invested aid and transparency. There are several aspects to our continued partnership. Every year, a collection is held among employees, with the employer matching the amount of each individual employee contribution and directed towards one of the organisation’s development projects. We also provide airport space for promotional activities of the organisation, for example by hosting exhibitions mapping their activities or placement of promotional banners. We also contribute funds towards selected one-off projects.
WINGS OF HELP Grant Programme
A financial assistance programme, ‘Wings of Help’, supports selected humanitarian, social and medical projects selected by an internal committee. Since 2016, employees have been involved in the decision-making process.

Public Collections and Coin Banks
Airport premises are an attractive location for holding public collections. Thus, we support selected non-profit organisations in this way. The proceeds from four Coin Banks are divided among 7 organisations carefully selected to represent a wide range of worthy causes.
Traditionally, at the beginning of the year, we join the largest public collection in the Czech Republic, the Three Kings Collection. Proceeds from the event organised by the Czech Catholic Charity are used for help to the ill, handicapped, seniors, mothers with children in need and other socially-challenged groups.
CSR is not only about money. Often, a price tag cannot be put on time. Our employees may dedicate the equivalent of a day’s work to a non-profit organisation.
