CSA Czech Airlines is increasing flights to Russia

Czech national air carrier - Czech Airlines (CSA) - increases flights to Russia: routes from Prague to Moscow SVO, St.-Petersburg and Samara will already be served by more planes this winter. Besides, new direct flight Samara - Karlovy Vary will be launched.

In 2012 Novosibirsk and Ufa will be connected also to Czechia by direct routes.

CSA vice-president Marek has noticed that "expansion of so-called east direction, including increase in number of flights to Moscow, is a priority for CSA". The Vice-president of the Czech airline has underlined, what even "at occurrence of any unforeseen situations - strikes or technical malfunctions - the direction to Moscow always will be priority". Currently CSA operates 28 direct flights from Prague to Moscow weekly plus has 3 Aeroflot codeshare flights daily.

The regular aircraft service between Prague and Moscow this year marks the 75th anniversary. At that time flight lasted for 10 hours, and the plane made five intermediate landings.

CSA Czech Airlines intend to open next summer flights from Prague to Novosibirsk and Ufa. After that the number of its Russian directions will reach seven: the company flies now to Moscow, St.-Petersburg, Ekaterinburg, Samara and Rostov-on-Don. More routes to Russia among the European carriers have only Lufthansa, Austrian and Turkish Airlines.

Besides, CSA is interested in possibility of flights from Prague to Krasnodar.

Why doesnt Moscow just build one huge airport instead of 3 medium to small sized ones? they all seem pretty small. And inconvenient if one has to transfer flights.

Why doesn't London build one airport instead of 5?

1. All 3 airports are being ran by 3 different organizations that keep wishing that one of them will recruit all airlines are other 2 will have to close.

2. What to do with the existing infrastructure that was recently and still being renovated?

3. To build one airport that is able to serve close to 50 million people and will be able to serve 100 million within next 10 - 20 years is ridiculously expensive. It would be cheaper to perfect those 3 existing ones.

4. Moscow is more or less circular city and a pretty large one with horrible traffic. You would have to build an airport right where Kremlin is in order for it to be convenient for everyone. Those 3 existing ones form (not perfect obvious) delta and it works for people from different ends of city.

5. Dubai example would not work. Moscow surrounding area is very dense and it would be a problem to obtain enough land for something that big. They would have to have at least 5 runways if not more if they want future growth. Assuming they will decide to buy out land from existing property owner, it would cost them ridiculous amount of money. Moscow has a very expensive real estate.

But isnt having airfield for 3 airports more of a waste than having bigger airfield for one or two big airports?

A lot of major airports are made up of terminals individually the size of one of these airports.

Certainly having one airport is more efficient and you have a humongous choice of connections but it is late when you have 3 airports already.

Look at London (Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton, City, Stanstead), New York (JFK, La Guardia, Newark), Los Angeles (LAX, Burbank, Long Beach, Irvine, Ontario), Tokyo (Narita, Haneda), etc.

But each of those airports are already bigger or equal to the three of the Moscow airports combined.

I agree that it would be a waste of money to build a whole new airport now, but in the future, maybe they should build one big airport.

You mean that each of those cities have bigger air traffic than Moscow? Pretty much you are right. But still, reality stays the same. There are far more important projects that needs to be done in Moscow besides building a brand new huge airport instead of those 3.

I suspected that Moscow would have almost as much air traffic as airports like JFK and Narita.

All together about 40 million in 2010 were served through Moscow Airports. But, keep in mind all the railroad traffic in Moscow. JFK does not have much. Moscow does. Most of the CIS traffic to Moscow uses railroad transportation. We do not have RyanAir and EasyJet and what i've discovered is that traveling from Moscow to Riga could cost at least $300 -400. Air Baltic and Aeroflot are smoking something. I needed to go to Vilnius and a flight from Moscow would cost $700.00. I took a train which cost me $160.00 RT.

Well domestic as well. Russian Far East for example. They have trains Moscow - Vladivostok. Travel time is 7 days so people usually fly. Air traffic is bound to everywhere with direct flights except for South America, Australia and Oceania. It is just that railroads take away some of the share of travel (at least European part of Russia and Eastern Europe).
