In Prague, Ryanair’s Chief Commercial Officer, David O’Brien said:
“Ryanair is pleased to add 2 more based aircraft at Prague (4 aircraft in total) as part of our biggest ever Prague summer schedule with 30 routes, including 15 new routes to and from exciting cities such as Copenhagen, Marrakesh and Pisa, which will deliver 2.1m customers p.a. as we continue to grow Czech routes, traffic, tourism and jobs.
To celebrate we are releasing seats for sale on these new routes from 529Kč for travel in April 2019. This offer is available for booking until midnight Friday (28 Sept). Since these amazing low fares will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com and avoid missing out.”
Prague Airport CEO, Vaclav Rehor, said:
“We welcome Ryanair’s decision to extend the number of flights offered from Prague during the 2019 summer schedule, primarily the introduction of services to the new destinations of Billund, Bournemouth, Pescara and Zadar, which are not currently served directly from Prague. Alongside the previously announced new routes to Amman and Marrakesh, Ryanair significantly extends the offer of direct flights for Czech passengers and at the same time brings Prague and the Czech Republic within reach of foreign visitors from the respective markets.”
