Low-costs quietly closing some Prague routes26 September 2006
While airlines opening new routes to Prague are making headlines, many have been compelled to limit their operations to the summer months â?? or to even close them down permanently.
Slovak low-cost airline SkyEurope is one of three airlines with a base in Prague after national air carrier Czech Airlines (ČSA) and Smart Wings (operated by Travel Service). It has 11 destinations, started since last spring, from the Czech capital â?? including its latest line, to begin this December, Prague-Grenoble, Italy. As of the winter schedule, starting Oct. 28, Sky Europe will reduce its Pragueâ??Amsterdam schedule from the current seven flights a week to three. Also, its Pragueâ??Barcelona, Spain route will be reduced to three times a week from its current four flights.
