PRIVATE JETS AT PRAGUE AIRPORT

Prague Vaclav Havel Airport has two dedicated FBOs (private jet terminals) which offer 24 hour operations for private jet flights to and from Prague.

The two operational runways allow all sizes of private aircraft to take off and land at Prague Airport - from helicopters, turbo props, small and medium jets, long range jets and private airliners.

PRAGUE AIRPORT HISTORY

The original Prague Ruzyne airport began flight operations on 5 April 1937, although Prague Kbely airport (an alternative private jet airport for Prague), opened years earlier in 1919.

The airport was designed by architect Ing.A. Benes, and has won several awards for its technical construction.

On 10 August 1968, Soviet paratroopers seized control of the airport, allowing the invasion of Soviet troops into Czechoslovakia.

The airport was featured in the James Bond Film Casino Royale, but in the film the airport is appearing as Miami International Airport.

The airport name changed from Prague Ruzyne Airport to Prague Vaclav Havel on 5 October 2012, named in honour of the last president of Czechoslovakia, and the first president of the new Czech Republic. Havel died in December 2011.

PRAGUE AIRPORT EXPANSION

Prague Vaclav Havel Airport currently has two concrete runways in service and an asphaltic concrete runway used for taxing and parking only. There are also three helipads.

Plans are underway to develop a further runway, south east of the main runway. This will allow greater take-off and landing capabilities in difficult weather conditions, as well as reducing noise levels due to a new runway and air traffic system.
