Czech Airlines About Czech Airlines

Czech Airlines, the largest airline company in the Czech Republic, has a very young and modern fleet. The airline is flying from the capital Prague to major European capitals and major destinations in North America. It was founded in 1923 and is the fifth oldest airline company in the world. The first flight was from Prague to Bratislava. Václav Havel Airport uses Prague as a hub.

In 1930, the first international flight was made from Prague to Zagreb, then to Bucharest in 1933 and Moscow in 1936. After ceasing its operations during World War II, Czech Airlines renewed its fleet, notably with the acquisition of its first jet aircraft: the Tupolev Tu-104A, and launched its first transcontinental routes in February 1962. The multiplication of the number of destinations, as well as the renewal of the fleet, allow Czech Airlines to gradually become one of the most successful airlines in Europe. In 1995, the company officially adopted its current name. Czech Airlines became a member of the SkyTeam alliance in March 2001. From 2004 to 2007, Czech Airlines won the “Best Central and Eastern European Airline” award for four consecutive years. In October 2017, Travel Service (now known as Smartwings) acquired Czech Airlines.

The airline attaches great importance to flawless service and customer friendliness. There’s even a frequent flyer program for kids: the Jetsters Club. The adult program, on the other hand, is called OK Plus. In addition to conventional awards such as bonus flights or admission to the Cristal Lounge at Prague Airport, there are also unusual gifts such as a flight in a hot air balloon. Czech Airlines is also involved in culture and is an official sponsor of the Prague Spring Music Festival.
