The low-cost airline easyJet plans to resume operations from Prague Airport in July.
The carrier should start flying again to Amsterdam from 13 July, to Manchester from 16 July, to Edinburgh from 17 July and a day later to Milan Malpensa.
Gradually, direct flights to other destinations from Prague should be resumed: Basel, Venice, Naples, Bristol, and London Gatwick Airport.
The budget carrier has enforced strict new social distancing measures for passengers, having grounded services back in April after the coronavirus crisis swept the globe.
The airline is planning to ramp up services as the summer progresses and by August has said it will be flying about three-quarters of routes but at a much lower frequency than last year.

Capacity will be at about 30% of usual in the busy July-to-September season, easyJet said. Its bigger rival Ryanair plans to be flying 40% of capacity by July.
“Thanks to our intensive negotiations with airlines, Prague Airport is gradually succeeding in resuming direct flights. At the moment we have confirmed a total of 55 destinations. Airlines are returning to their routes from Prague in line with the relaxation of traveling measures and, above all, in response to the demand for flying shown by passengers. It is this demand that will be key to the success of the resumed air connections in the coming weeks and months,” says Václav Řehoř, Chairman of the Prague Airport Board of Directors.
