Ryanair Launches Rescue Fares As Wizz Air Closes Prague Base

19 Jan 2018

Ryanair, Europe’s No.1 airline, today (19 Jan), launched €19.99/529CZK rescue fares on its Prague-Milan Bergamo route to accommodate customers affected by Wizz Air’s closure of its Prague base in June of this year.

Ryanair opened its own Prague base in October 2016 with 2 based aircraft, and has reported record bookings on its Prague summer 2018 schedule which will deliver growth of 76% at Prague and includes new summer routes to Barcelona (daily), Bologna (4 wkly), Budapest (5 wkly), Edinburgh (4 wkly), Eindhoven (4 wkly), Madrid (4 wkly), Malaga (3 wkly), Krakow (2 wkly) and London Stansted (16 wkly).

Ryanair customers can fly to and from Prague on the lowest fares, with the most on-time flights and most reliable service, and can look forward to further improvements, as Ryanair continues its “Always Getting Better” programme, which includes more new routes, new digital features, connecting flights and even more low fares.

These €19.99/529CZK rescue fares are on sale now on the Ryanair.com website, for travel between Jan and June 2018, but must be booked by midnight Tuesday (23 Jan).

Ryanair’s Denis Barabas said:  

“Ryanair customers can continue to enjoy the lowest fares and most reliable service to and from Prague and we’ve released rescue fares to assist customers affected by the closure of Wizz Air’s Prague base and the cancellation of this Milan route.

Customers can fly between Prague and Milan Bergamo at fares starting from just €19.99/529CZK between now and June and these rescue fares are on sale now until midnight Tuesday (23 Jan), only on the Ryanair.com website. Customers should book quickly because these fares will be gone very soon – just like Wizz Air’s base at Prague.”
