Prague's Václav Havel Airport has exciting news for travelers this summer season. Starting this weekend, the airport will add an additional 11 new flights to its 2023 schedule, including two new long-haul routes to Seoul and Taiwan. The new flights will give Prague's airport a total of 152 destinations worldwide via 65 different carriers.

This summer, Prague's airport will reach about 80 percent of its record pre-pandemic 2019 offer in terms of the number of destinations and carriers. For Jiří Pos, Chairman of the Board of Directors at Václav Havel Airport, this year's flight schedule is a huge success.

“Compared to last summer season, we will offer passengers more connections, despite the fact that there are still no destinations served in Ukraine and Russia. For comparison, in the record year of 2019, there were flights from Prague to 190 destinations. This year, we are at 152," Pos states in a press release.

"At the same time, we managed to resume the long-haul route to Seoul, South Korea, with Korean Air, and starting this July, we will connect Prague with Taiwan with direct flights thanks to China Airlines. These are big milestones and a huge success.”

There will also be increases in the number of frequencies on nearly 40 routes, including the five most popular cities: London, Amsterdam, Paris, Antalya, and Frankfurt. Passengers can also expect a higher number of connections to destinations such as Riga, Chisinau, Dublin, Málaga, Athens, Barcelona, Warsaw, and Rhodes.

But the best news is that Václav Havel Airport Prague will offer a variety of new destinations this summer. Korean Air will resume its route to Seoul, South Korea as of March 27, and China Airlines will connect Prague with Taiwan from July 18.

Icelandair will also debut in Prague, connecting the Czech capital with Reykjavik four times a week from June 1. That's especially good news for travelers headed to the United States, as Reykjavik offers connections to 14 destinations across the states.

Other new destinations travelers can visit from Prague's Václav Havel Airport this summer include popular holiday locales such as Bilbao and Seville in Spain, Dubrovnik in Croatia, Skiathos in Greece, Armenian capital Yerevan, Gdansk in Poland, and the city of Muscat in Oman.

Jaroslav Filip, director of Prague Airport Aviation Business, is optimistic about a strong summer season, with traffic forecasts looking positive. The airport can handle over 13 million passengers this year, and there is a higher demand for outbound tourism to holiday destinations compared to the past three years.

Together with CzechTourism and Prague City Tourism , the airport is also providing intensive support for inbound tourism to Prague, which is expected to greatly increase during the summer months.
