Ural Airlines has announced a new direct connection between Prague and Rostov-on-Don to fly every Friday effective from 21 February 2020. The carrier will use Airbus A320 aircraft in a 162-passenger configuration. According to Prague Airport’s estimates, the service could be used by as many as 10,000 passengers in both directions every year. Starting in February, Ural Airlines’ destinations from Prague will increase to five. Besides Rostov-on-Don, passengers can also regularly fly to Ekaterinburg, Zhukovsky International Airport near Moscow, Perm and Krasnodar.
Effective May 30, 2020, the new route between Prague and Izmir will be operated each Saturday using modern and efficient Boeing 737-800NG aircraft with 189 seats. SunExpress has already been offering service to Antalya from Prague since last June and will increase its frequency on this route to three weekly flights next year following a growth in passenger demand. “After we started our operation to Prague with our Antalya service last summer, we are very happy to not only have expanded that to three services a week, but also to add flights to SunExpress’ second biggest base Izmir. Flights to the beautiful vacation gateway at the Turkish Aegean coast will operate every Saturday, while Antalya will be served Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays. This gives Czech holiday makers plenty of attractive options for their next trip with us”, Wilken Bellmann, Head of Network Planning and Scheduling at SunExpress, commented.
