Prague Airport

With an excellent location with respect to its short distance from the centre of Prague and also within the European area, Prague Václav Havel Airport is no stranger to winning awards as it garnered its first award in 1937 for the technical conception of the central airport, primarily the architecture of the check-in building (nowadays known as Terminal 4) designed by architect Ing. A. Beneš. Terminal 4 is now the oldest part of the airport. Although the airport continually serves more than 10 million passengers a year, it is only ranked the 32nd busiest airport in Europe, with Great Britain, France and Germany as its top destinations

Prague Václav Havel Airport has 2 main passenger terminals, 2 general aviation terminals and a cargo facility. The North Terminals are Terminal 1 and 2 and handle most of the flights including scheduled flights for the non-Schengen area and Schengen area respectively, while the South Terminals are Terminal 3 and 4 handle the more irregular flights such as private, charter and VIP flights. Terminal 1 and 2 are closely located within a walking distance of 8-10 minutes.

There are a number of ways to spend your free time at the airport. One which may excite history buffs is the Airport Museum. Located at Terminal 2 Departure Hall, travellers will be able to learn about the airport through large format photo galleries, period maps, and documentary films. A replica of the Avia BH25 aircraft is also available for visitors to sit on. Nearby, there is a viewing terrace where you will be rewarded with an exceptional view of the airport runway and the aircraft parked on it. From there, the preparations for departure or approach of the boarding bridge upon arrival can all be seen. Interestingly, there are several holes in the airport fencing surrounding its restricted area to allow a clear view of the aviation fans. Additionally, airport tours to behind the scenes operational areas are available.

In addition to the shopping and dining facilities that adults will definitely enjoy, Prague Airport has various attractions for children. In the public area of Terminal 1 and in the restricted area of Terminal 2 in Pier D, there are paid mechanical toys ready to rock and amuse your children as well as large climbers, slides and toys in the children’s play areas. Various restaurants also offer discounts and set meals for children. As long as you see the bee mascot, Mr. B, you can be assured that your children will be well taken care of in those areas!

Various relaxation venues are available for those who have slightly longer waiting times. The REST & FUN CENTER offers various refreshments, shower facilities and even private entertainment rooms for you to play the X-box or watch a movie. Otherwise, those with lounge access should make use of the lush cushions and wide variety of food at the many lounges around the airport.

Those arriving at Prague or leaving Prague without a travel itinerary can also book a tour at the various travel agencies located at the airport.
