Ryanair to launch new flight connections from Prague

Unveiling its 2019 summer schedule, the world’s leading low-cost carrier Ryanair announced that it would expand its operations and launch new flight connections from Prague’s Vaclav Havel International Airport.

Addressing reporters during a press conference in the Czech Republic‘s capital, Ryanair’s Chief of commercial operations David O’Brien said that the airline would invest up to 200 million euros to double the number of aircraft based in Prague and launch 15 new routes to 9 different countries, bringing the total of its flight connections to and from the Czech capital to 30 routes and more than 130 flights per week.

The new routes include daily connections with Copenhagen (Denmark), four weekly connections with Venice (Italy), three weekly flights to Paris (France), Pisa (Italy), Riga (Latvia) and Stockholm (Sweden), as well as bi-weekly connections with Amman (Jordan), Bari (Italy), Pescara (Italy), Billund (Denmark), Bournemouth (U.K.), Gothenburg (Sweden), Marrakesh (Morocco), Marseille (France) and Zadar (Croatia).

Prague’s Vaclav Havel is among the fastest growing airports in Europe: it handled nearly 7.5 million passengers in the first half of the year, a 10% increase year-on-year, and is poised to set a new record this year, with officials expecting up to 17 million passengers for 2018.

A few weeks ago, Ryanair also announced new flight connections to and from Poland.
