International travel options from Prague should open up a bit from next week as Czech Airlines resumes flights to London and Amsterdam, Zdopravy.cz reports based on information provided by Smartwings Group.

From Monday, November 30, Czech Airlines will resume service to London's Heathrow Airport and Amsterdam's Schiphol, parent company Smartwings Group spokesperson Vladimíra Dufková confirmed to the server.

"We will adjust the offered capacity according to the situation," Dufková added.

The flight to London-Heathrow will run daily from 11:40 a.m., returning to Prague from 1:35 p.m. London time.

Currently, only RyanAir operates flights from Prague to London, running twice per week and flying to Stansted. British Airways and easyJet have suspended all flights between the destinations.

The Czech Airlines flight to Amsterdam will daily except Saturdays from 5:25 p.m. Currently, KLM also offers flights from Prague to Amsterdam.

Additionally, Dufková confirmed that the airline would be adding a pair of additional international flights from mid-December. Starting December 17, Czech Airlines will also resume routes to Rome and Odessa.

Since the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in October, international flights from Prague have been drastically reduced. Currently, Czech Airlines flies to Paris, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Moscow and Kiev.

The additional flights added over the coming weeks will roughly double the number of international destinations the airline serves, while London and Amsterdam serve as major hubs for travelers continuing their journey to destinations outside of Europe.
