Prague airport is one of central Europe’s main airports. It is located only 18 km from the city centre. It was originally known as Prague – Ruzyně airport, today indeed it is named after “Václav Havel”, who has been Czechoslovakia’s last president and Czech Republic’s first one.
The airport is a modern and vast building. It offers more than 60 scheduled flights. Even though the city of Prague has three other minor airports, most of the national and international flights land at this airport.
In 2015 around 12 million passengers have passed through Prague airport.
The airport offers three diverse terminals: one designated only for charter, cargo, private, institutional and national flights.
Prague - Ruzyně airport’s construction began in July 1932 and was completed in 1937. This airport was immediately considered and recognized as one of Europe’s major airports.
During World War II, the airport was employed for military reasons. It was mainly a base offering practice for military pilots. Once the war was over, the airport re-opened to civil air traffic. Later on the structure was enlarged. Over the years the structure has been modified and new airstrips have been built.
At the beginning of the 90s, a new terminal was opened due to the increase of passengers’ numbers. During those years around 4,8 million passengers passed through that terminal. Consequently terminal 3 opened to private flights.
In 2005, as the airport counted more than 10 million passengers terminal 2 was built and designated only for flights within the Schengen area.
In 2012 Prague airport was named after “Václav Havel”.
