Arrival & Transport

Václav Havel Airport Prague

Prague's airport is 20 km from the city centre. A taxi to the town centre costs around 600Kč. You can get one from the taxi ranks outside, Fix Taxi and AAA Radiotaxi are the airport’s official taxi companies. Alternatively, use the ČEDAZ minibus service (tel. 220 116 758, 07:30 - 19:00) that runs every half hour between the airport and V Celnici Street about 50 metres from Náměstí Republiky (F-2). Tickets cost 150Kč (including one piece of baggage, children under 6 free) and can be bought from the driver or from the booth in the arrival terminal.

The cheapest way to get into town is by bus: N°119 (2-8 times per hour between 04:18 and 00:10 with at least one wheelchair-friendly bus per hour) runs between the airport and the Veleslavín metro station (Line A, green) in about 15 minutes. Bus N°100 whisks you to Zličín (metro Line B, yellow) from the airport in 18 minutes. You can download maps of the public transport network from the transit authority website (dpp.cz). There is an Airport Express (AE) bus from Hlavní Nádraží which runs every half an hour, whizzing you across the city in about 30 minutes. Special fares apply to this bus, tickets can only be bought from the driver and do not allow any transfers nor can be used on other forms of transport. First & last buses from Hlavní Nádraží 05:15 & 21:45, from the airport 04:40 & 21:10.

A 32Kč transport ticket (plus a 10Kč one for big bags) will get you all the way into town or to the airport on all public transport except the Airport Express. Tickets can be bought at the friendly transport information desk in both arrival halls (open 07:00 - 22:00) or from the coin-operated machine at the airport bus stop, but not from the driver. You need to validate the ticket (once for the whole trip) in the machines on board the bus.

Prague’s Terminal 2 allows for at least 4 million more passengers a year to travel into Prague with the ability to expand to move even more. New bars, restaurants, shops and services ply their trade in this terminal which accommodates flights to and from Schengen countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Greece, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Greece, Spain & Sweden). Terminal 1 is for all other destinations.

There is a left luggage facility at the airport which doesn't close and costs 120Kč per item per day. Other bonus facilities include a branch of the Prague City Tourism Office, showers and a free cinema.
