Czech Airlines Celebrates 95th Anniversary with Special Round Trips

This year, Cezch Airlines commemorate the 95th anniversary of the company’s foundation and launch of operations. The first flight on the Prague – Bratislava route departed Prague/Kbely airport on 29 October 1923 at 12:35 pm. However, the original plan was very different. The Bratislava flight should have been handled a day earlier, on the occasion of the 5th anniversary of the foundation of Czechoslovakia. The weather on 28 October 1923 foiled the plans. Therefore, instead of the originally planned flight, Czech Airlines only performed a symbolic flight around Kbely.

On the occasion of the 95th anniversary, Czech Airlines not only want to symbolically repeat the historical events of the autumn of 1923, but also to offer you even more, so they have prepared a series of flights to remember around Prague at a low cruising altitude.

All round trip flights will be piloted by the most experienced captains at cruising altitude of around 800 metres above the surrounding terrain, which is the lowest cruising altitude for any common commercial passenger aircraft flights with customers on board. Czech Airlines will make a loop around Prague and Křivoklát, Točník, Karlstein and Český Šternberk castles as well as the chateaux of Zbiroh, Konopiště and Kostelec nad Černými Lesy along with the Slapy and Klíčava reservoirs, and the Sázava monastery, Ondřejov observatory and other interesting places.

The tickets can be purchased only on Friday, 20th April. You will be able to select your seat on board free of charge and check-in for the flight online 36 hours prior to departure. Round trip flights will take place in any weather conditions which permit their safe performance.
