New Emirates line Dubai - Prague from 1st July 2010

Emirates will launch a daily flight to Prague from 1st July 2010.
It will be operated by Airbus A330-200 for 27 people in Business Class and 251 people in Economy Class. At the same time the number of seats from Munich (the nearest airport from Prague) will be reduced - change of type from B777-300ER to smaller A340-500. The second flight Munich - Dubai with A330-200 will operate without changes.

Wow, what airport did I fly into from Munich in 2004? It definitely wasn't this one. I remember it being very outdated looking and ugly. Must've been the old communist one that simcard is talking about. Did that old one he speaks of operate in 2004?

The new one looks nice by the way.

Etihad Airways and Czech Airlines sign landmark strategic agreement 23-06-2011
The flag carriers of the Czech Republic and the United Arab Emirates – Czech Airlines (OK) and Etihad Airways (EY) – have signed a new codeshare agreement.

This will see Czech Airlines launch new direct flights between Abu Dhabi and Prague, and offer onward global connections through Etihad’s network. The connections include flights to Muscat, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Kuwait. Destinations on the Indian subcontinent and in Asia such as Colombo in Sri Lanka, Bangkok, Singapore, Jakarta and Manila will be easily reached, in addition to connecting flights to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

The agreement will also allow Etihad passengers to book flights straight through to Prague and beyond to other Czech Airlines serviced routes.

Philippe Moreels, Czech Airlines’ Vice-President of Economics stated: “Czech Airlines is an important player on the European market but on a global scale it is difficult to compete without strong partners. We are extremely satisfied that we have found a genuinely strong and respected partner in Etihad Airways. I believe that the announcement we are making today will serve both outbound and inbound passengers extremely well. And it is merely the first step towards deeper and more intensive cooperation in the future.”

Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways Chief Commercial Officer said: “As the world’s leading airline, this new strategic relationship which includes but is not limited to just a codeshare agreement, illustrates Etihad’s growing ambitions in the Central and Eastern Europe region. It opens up the beautiful city of Prague that we have been eager to offer our customers for such a long time, and we are certain these new connections and the seamless flight experience offered jointly by Etihad and Czech Airlines, will appeal to both business and leisure travellers alike.”

Czech Airlines will inaugurate its first flight to Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, on 21 September 2011. The Airline will initially operate four weekly return flights to Abu Dhabi, departing from Prague every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday using Airbus A319 aircraft. Thanks to the strategic partnership and cooperation on code sharing, Czech Airlines passengers can then continue onwards with Etihad Airways with a single OK flight ticket, to Etihad’s almost 70 global destinations.

Similarly, Etihad’s guests can travel on Czech Airlines flights to Prague’s Ruzyně airport and on to other Czech Airlines’ destinations in central and Eastern Europe. Czech Airlines’ arrival and departure times at Abu Dhabi ensure passengers can carry on to their target destination in under three hours. The same applies for Etihad transfer passengers headed for Prague from elsewhere on the Etihad network.

“The decision of Etihad Airways, the world’s leading airline, to agree this new partnership with Czech Airlines allows the development of mutually beneficial traffic flows between Prague and Abu Dhabi, and beyond to our GCC, ISC, Asia Pacific, and Australia destinations,” concluded Mr Baumgartner.

Miroslav Dvořák, President of Czech Airlines, summed up: “Thanks to the perfect harmonisation of departure and arrival times at Abu Dhabi, destinations in the Middle East, Africa, the Indian subcontinent, Asia and Australia have never been as accessible from Prague as they are now. And on top of that, cooperation with Etihad Airways brings Prague closer as a tourist centre, for tens of millions of passengers from across the Etihad network.”

Both airlines will start selling tickets on 24 June 2011. Tickets can be purchased online via www.czechairlines.com. Alternatively, tickets can be booked through the Czech Airlines Contact Centre at 800 310 310 (Czech Republic number only) and +420 239 007 007, and through local Etihad sales contact centres. Both airlines will sell codeshare tickets as of mid-August 2011. The partnership between Czech Airlines and Etihad Airways allows both companies’ passengers to book and travel with just one ticket for their entire journey with a stopover in Abu Dhabi.
