As of Sunday, 27 October 2019, the winter flight schedule becomes effective. It will provide direct flights from Václav Havel Airport Prague to 121 destinations in 46 countries, to six more destinations than over the same period last year. New destinations that have been added this winter include Lviv, Kharkiv, Chisinau, Florence, Beirut, Nur-Sultan and Keflavik. Prague’s winter flight schedule will feature a total of 15 new destinations. In terms of destinations, the largest number of fights will head to London, from countries to the UK.
During the winter season, 60 airlines, of which 13 are low-cost carriers, will operate regular direct flights from Prague. This means that Prague Airport has continued to maintain a very good balance between traditional and low-cost airlines.

“The increasing number of destinations in the upcoming winter season confirms that Prague is an attractive destination both for airlines and for tourists. Czech passengers will also benefit from this interest, as new options for travels abroad will open up. In addition to new destinations in Eastern Europe, passengers can also take advantage of service to places with traditionally only summer seasonal flights from Prague, such as Iceland and Malta,” says Vaclav Rehor, Chairman of the Board of Directors at Prague Airport.
