Almost 700,000 passengers passed through Prague Airport in August, which represents 102 percent compared to last August. Most of them go to typical holiday destinations, specifically in Greece, Italy and Spain. Of the specific destinations, however, the most popular was the Bulgarian Burgas, where almost 46,000 passengers went.
During August, more than 7,500 takeoffs and landings will take place at Prague Airport, which represents 39 percent compared to last August. These statistics collectively include scheduled, charter, private and cargo flights. Most passengers went from Prague to Burgas, Amsterdam and Rhodes during August. Destinations such as Hurghada, Marsa Alam or Antalya were also popular.
“In August, our forecasts of strong outbound tourism were confirmed. Year-on-year, there was more than 100% monitoring in the number of checked-in passengers, but compared to August 2019, this is a 65% decrease. In connection with the gradual relaxation of the measures, there was also a slight recovery in tourism from selected countries such as Israel or the United States of America, “says Jaroslav Filip, Director of Aviation at Prague Airport.
The resumption of direct flights continues during September. For example, SAS renews its route to Stockholm, SkyUp Airlines offers a new route to Kiev, Transavia France renews flights to Paris and Eurowings to Hamburg. Aeroflot and Czech Airlines have increased the number of connections on the Prague-Moscow route, and it is possible to fly to St. Petersburg more often with Rossiya Airlines. Smartwings has renewed their connections to St. Petersburg.

Recommendations before departure
Passengers should also leave at the airport during the current season with additional advance so that they have enough time to go through the entire check-in process. All passengers who have a scheduled flight must always verify all currently valid conditions for travel to their destination and for return to the Czech Republic before the trip.
At check-in, passengers should present:
- a completed country entry form, if required by the destination,
- printed confirmation of a negative test result, proven vaccination or illness, if necessary,
- valid travel document.
They should inform their airline of all measures in force on board the aircraft measures at Prague Airport. As part of the measures on passengers, we strongly urge that:
- it was mandatory to wear an FFP2 respirator in all indoor airport applications,
- observe the distances from other passengers,
- paid attention to hand hygiene and continued to disinfect regularly
