Ryanair announces winter schedule for Prague

Five new destinations including Marrakesh have been added

Low-cost carrier Ryanair published its Prague flight timetable for the 2018 winter season.

The Prague winter schedule will offer five new lines: Amman (twice weekly), Eilat Ovda (twice a week), Marrakesh (twice weekly), Paris / Beauvais (three times a week) and Pisa (three times a week). The Amman and Pisa routes had been previously announced.

Ryanair has 19 lines in total, including Brussels / Charleroi (twice daily), Dublin (daily) and London / Stansted (three times a day).

Both Czech and foreign passengers can now book flights until March 2019.

“We are pleased to launch the Prague flight schedule for the winter season 2018 with five new lines and 19 in total, which will transfer 1.6 million passengers to Prague per year and increase operations at Václav Havel Airport by 45 percent. Both Czech and foreign customers can book flights for the winter season 2018 already,” Ryanair Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Kenny Jacobs said in a press release, adding that ticket prices were falling.

“We will celebrate the publication of the Prague Winter Timetable for 2018 by selling places from only Kč 439 for a trip to May 2018. Flights for these prices can be booked by midnight, Sunday, March 11. The spots will definitely sell out quickly,” he added.

Václav Řehoř, chairman of the board of airport operator Letiště Praha, was pleased with the new destinations.

"The new Ryanair lines will expand the range of destinations from our airport in the 2018 winter season with two fully new lines. There is a direct regular service to Marrakesh, thanks to which a direct connection with Morocco returns after years. In both directions, we expect approximately 32,000 passengers per year. The second new destination in the airport offer is an already announced line to Amman,” he said.

“At the same time, we are pleased that thanks to the Ryanair news, we will continue to offer direct regular connections between Prague and Eilat [in Israel], where we expect about 14,000 passengers in both directions during the winter season. We will also get a year-round connection to Pisa, which was still a seasonal destination, and with a new line to Paris to Beauvais Airport, our passengers will be able to choose among three Paris airports," he added.

Ryanair is an Irish low-cost airline founded in 1984, headquartered in Swords in County Dublin, Ireland. Its primary operational bases are at Dublin and London Stansted airports. It is the largest European airline with scheduled passengers flown and carried more international passengers than any other airline.

The backbone of the Ryanair fleet is the Boeing 737-800, which accounts for 419 of the carrier’s 420 planes. The other is a Boeing 737-700 used for charter flights and training.

The carrier recently announced green initiatives, including a commitment to going free of non-recyclable plastics in five years.

Václav Havel Airport Prague saw more than 15 million passengers for the first time in 2017, making it the most successful year ever.

In the future, the airport hopes to increase its capacity to 21 million people per year.
