Discovering Prague and its surroundings from the top
“Due to the great interest in our first series of scenic flights around Prague at a low cruising altitude on the occasion of the Runway Park event hosted by Prague Airport, additional flights have been added to our schedule. The additional flights will be operated on 18 July at 2:00 p.m. and 19 July at 10:00 a.m. The universal ticket price is CZK 1,490, including all charges and taxes,” wrote on Instagram Czech Airlines.
The Czech flag carrier is repeating its campaign from two years ago when on the occasion of the company’s 95th anniversary they offered low-level flights over Prague. This year once more a number of adventure flights with 70 passengers each will allow the locals to rediscover the beauties of their own country from a bird’s-eye perspective.
Passengers will have the opportunity to experience flights with the symbolic number OK 97 – symbolic due to the fact that CSA is turning 97 in 2020. The ATR 72 turboprop aircraft will take off from Terminal 3 of Václav Havel Prague Airport and the entirety of the flight will take about 30-40 minutes and will be piloted by veteran captains.
The route will take on the form of a sightseeing circuit around Prague, which will lead over the castles Křivoklát, Točník, Karlštejn or Český Šternberk, around the castles Zbiroh, Konopiště or Kostelec nad Černými Lesy, through the Slapy and Klíčava reservoirs, around the Sázava monastery and the Ondřejov observatory and other famous sites.
The aircraft will fly to the lower limit of the controlled airspace which corresponds to an altitude of approximately 800 meters above the ground.
