Czech Airlines to resume flight operations next week

 Monday, May 11, 2020 


Czech Airlines has recently announced that it is looking forward to resuming flight operations starting May 18. The initial flights will fly to selected destinations across Europe. The carrier has planned to undertake a steady approach towards increasing its flight schedules. It will begin operations by providing services to Germany, France, Sweden, and the Netherlands. Later, it will also start the routes to Ukraine and Romania, towards the end of this month.

The airline has officially stated that it will operate Václav Havel Airport Prague (PRG) and Amsterdam Schipol Airport (AMS), commencing next week. The flights will be available two times every day and will be operated by Airbus A320. The plan comes after Czech Airlines suspended its services and grounded the majority of its fleet for one and a half months in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

The airline has constantly contributed and used its assets to help people in need throughout the pandemic. Towards the end of March, it brought one million face masks from China to Prague as well as volunteered to provide rescue operations in order to bring Czech nationals home from foreign countries. However, it is now eager to resume commercial flight activities and getting back in the sky while rebuilding itself to the best of its abilities.

The airline will also fly two Airbus A319 from PRG to Frankfurt Airport (FRA) three days per week. It is also planning to operate three Airbus A320 daily to Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG). In addition, it might also resume services to Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN) using Boeing 737-800. According to plans, one flight would be operated to ARN on Sundays and Thursdays for the month of May and daily flights might resume from June 4. Czech Airlines also hopes to offer flights to Kyiv in Ukraine starting May 24 as well looks forward to introducing flights to Bucharest in Romania from May 25.

The carrier has also decided to encourage standard personal protection practices and make flying comfortable for passengers. The airline said in a recent statement that urging passengers to cover their nose and mouth with sufficient protective gear like face mask before boarding the aircraft and throughout the flight is the most significant action to ensure flying is safe. It has also planned to promote social distancing by maintaining a two-meter gap between passengers during boarding and disembarking the aircraft as well as introduced contactless payments for purchases of in-flight refreshments. It will also continue to disinfect all parts of the aircraft cabin, including seats, tray tables, bathrooms, and overhead lockers.
