We have introduced our own sophisticated system for tracing and searching for contacts in the workplace. Therefore, I am extremely glad that the set protective measures work, health risks for travel and thus eliminate the safety of flying, “says Jiří Pos, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Prague Airport.
