Prague Airport is set to launch its new ‘Fly via Prague’ service – beginning April 1 – for select passengers transferring at the hub between flights operated by different carriers.

By purchasing a connection via Vaclav Havel Airport, customers will be entitled to multiple benefits which are included in the new scheme. Passengers are eligible to use the FastTrack service, which speeds up the security screening procedure and eliminates the need for queues.

Jakub Puchalsky, member of the Prague Airport board of directors, said: “Self-connect travelling was on the rise even before the current crisis, and the trend will continue, favoured in particular by the young generation of passengers who look for multiple travel options and value flexibility when travelling. We are pleased that we can join other airports which already offer similar services and that our first partner of the product is”

Customers will also be given a selection of discount vouchers – known as a smart pass – to use for airport shopping and those with checked baggage departing from Terminal 2 will have the option of using the self-service bag drop off.

Six routes can currently be used as part of the self-connect travel via Prague Airport. Fly via Prague signs are located throughout the airport, helping passengers navigate their way around.
