William Pearson, Birmingham Airport’s Aviation Development Director, said: “Prague is a brand new route from Birmingham so we are delighted that Czech Airlines has confirmed they will launch services from Birmingham and also introduce this key destination for both business and leisure travel, and to connect onwards beyond Prague to Czech Airlines’ network.
“We know from CAA data that 30% of the passengers travelling to Prague from our one hour catchment travel for business reasons so we’re pleased that Czech Airlines will offer business class on the route.”
