This exquisite European city will be an extremely popular destination for both business and leisure travellers, providing our passengers the opportunity to experience the unique beauty of the city. The launch of this new service comes at a time when we are expanding our presence in Eastern Europe, as part of our efforts to extend our reach globally. We are tremendously excited to be able to provide passengers the opportunity to visit this magnificent city.”

Vaclav Rehor, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Prague Airport, said: “The proposed schedule, at two different times of operations, will support connections within the carrier’s network via Doha to Asian and Australian routes.
