Everything you need to know before flying with Czech Airlines

Czech Airlines in a nutshell

Krystof Hajek updated 4. 8. 2023

Czech Airlines is the fifth oldest and still operating airline in the world. They have their main hub at Prague PRG Airport and currently operate only 2 routes to Paris and Madrid.

The airline's turbulent period began at the turn of the millennium when the fleet had to be halved within a few years and after the takeover by Smartwings, the fleet and destinations served have been steadily shrinking. The final blow came with the Covid-19 pandemic, when the airline almost went bankrupt and operated with only one aircraft.

Today they have 2 aircraft on lease with OK registration.

CSA are a member of the Sky Team alliance and operate the OK Plus frequent flyer programme.
