Václav Havel Airport has new winter destinations

The new schedule has direct flights to Liverpool, Xi'an and Keflavík, among others

Václav Havel Airport Prague, as of Oct. 29 will have regular connections to 112 destinations, some eight more than at the same time last year. Compared to the previous year, the new winter schedule has 11 new destinations including Xi'an, China. The winter schedule will be in effect until March 24.

Some 61 airlines will fly passengers to 41 countries. “In the coming months, we will offer not only connections to 11 new destinations but, compared to the previous winter, we will welcome five new passenger carriers,” Letiště Praha chairman Václav Řehoř said.

The 11 new destinations compared to last winter are: Aarhus, Denmark (Czech Airlines); Liverpool (Ryanair); Doha (Qatar Airways); London City (BA Cityflyer); Ejlat, Israel (Wizz Air); London Southend (Flybe); Kaliningrad, Russia (Rusline); Xi'an, China (China Eastern Airlines); Krakow (Ryanair), Tbilisi, Georgia (Georgian Airways); and Keflavík, Iceland (Wizz Air).

The UK has the largest number of places with regular connections from Prague, some 15 destinations. This is three more than last winter. Russia has 10 destinations, followed by France, Spain, and Italy with nine each.

London will have the most service in the winter, with up to 13 flights daily. Other busy destinations will be Moscow with up to nine flights daily, followed by Paris, Amsterdam, and Frankfurt with up to seven connections daily.

Flights from Prague will now go to all of London's international airports. There will be service to London City Airport six times a week by BA Cityflyer, a subsidiary of British Airways. There will also be a new connection to London Southend Airport.

Irish carrier Ryanair also has eight new routes for winter, though some are to places that had service last year or have service from other carriers. Ryanair will head to Barcelona, Málaga and Madrid, Spain; Bologna, Italy; Budapest, Hungary; Edinburgh, Scotland; Eindhoven, Netherlands; and Krakow, Poland. All new flights will be serviced by Boeing 737-800 aircraft with the capacity of 189 seats. Service to Liverpool will continue from the summer schedule and is new for winter.

China Eastern Airlines is starting service to Xi’an in central China, known for its terracotta army. An Airbus A330 will stop over in Xi’an before continuing to Shanghai. Some flights will still go directly to Shanghai without the stopover. Xi’an will become the fourth Chinese destination, alongside Beijing, Shanghai, and Chengdu, with a direct scheduled connection from Václav Havel Airport Prague.

Already launched service to Doha, introduced in summer, will continue and is new as a winter destination. Doha offers connections to further destinations in Asia.

Iceland is new to the list of countries compared to last winter, with service to Iceland's main hub, Keflavík International Airport by Wizz Air.
