Václav Havel Prague Airport is a modern and spacious international airport located on the northwest edge of Prague less than 20 km north of the city. All international flights arrive here and there is no other civil airport in Prague. Terminal 1 is mainly for Inter-Continental flights including flights to the United Kingdom, Ireland, North America, Middle-East, Africa and Asia while Terminal 2 served for flights within the EU Schengen Agreement member countries and other European destinations. Terminal 3 is used only for Charter, cargo and private flights.
Getting from the Airport is easy and the journey to the city centre takes around 25 to 30 minutes, or around 50 minutes by public transport. Taxies parked airport terminal will take you to the town centre for about 650 CZK. Alternatively, use the CEDAZ minibus service that runs every half hour between the airport and Náměstí Republiky but only from 7:30 am to 7:00 pm. Tickets cost 150 CZK and are sold by the driver. But best way is to pre-book reputable taxi from Prague Airport Transfers, which will take you directly to your hotel for a bargain price. The cheapest but less comfortable way to get into town is by public transport. Take bus number 119, which goes from the airport to Nadrazi Veleslavín metro station in about 20 minutes. From there it is four to six stops to the centre of town. Buy a 32 CZK transport ticket at the transport information desk in the arrivals hall or from the card and coin-operated machine at the airport bus stop.
The airport has good choice of restaurants (including Starbucks, Costa Coffee and McDonald), duty-free shops, VIP lounges, conference rooms, several travel and accommodation agencies, Billa supermarket, Vodafone mobile shop and a post office. Cafés and bars are in public and transit areas of the Airport are barrier-free suitable for wheelchairs. Special assistance for disabled passengers can be ordered when booking the air-ticket through your specific airline. Alternatively, you can phone Prague National Airport Authority’s Assistance Service
