What is the difference between the systems for flights inside and outside the Schengen Area?

Notice

Current information and recommendation for passengers:

Thank you for protecting yourself and other travellers at the airport by wearing a face mask, keeping a safe distance, washing your hands frequently and using hand sanitizers.
We recommend checking the entry requirements of the country you are travelling to and the measures taken by your airline.

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

Information on the airport's protective measures can be found HERE

Within the Schengen Area, you can travel with just a valid ID card (you do not have to have your passport with you) and, therefore, you do not need to go through passport control. Check-in is immediately followed by security control, and only then do you enter the transit zone of the Airport with its duty-free shops, restaurants and other services. Passengers traveling within the Schengen Area are checked-in in Terminal 2. Passengers flying outside the Schengen Area also have to pass through passport control before entering the transit zone of the Airport. Security control takes place only once you are directly at the gate, therefore please make sure you reserve enough time for boarding the plane. Passengers traveling outside the Schengen Area are checked-in in Terminal 1.
