Prague Ruzyne Airport Information
Ruzyne is located 12 miles (19 km) west of the center of Prague. There is no airport Web site, but a Prague Web site offers transportation recommendations and phone numbers.
Taxis are available outside the arrivals area. Fare should be about 450-550 koruna ($14-$17), and the trip will take from 20 to 30 minutes to the center. Make sure the meter is set to number 1. If it is set to number 2 (used only for the night hours) you will be paying double the correct fare. If the meter is not on, make sure you agree on the fare before leaving the airport. All taxis, by law, have to have a working meter.
CSA (The Czech National Airline) runs a shuttle bus from the airport to the center of Prague, with stops at the major hotels. It leaves three times an hour from in front of the terminal from 7:30 A.M. to 9:30 P.M. The fare is about 90 koruna ($3).
Cedaz runs a bus service. The vans are white (and shiny) and leave once an hour from 5 A.M. to 10 P.M. Fares and destinations vary. To be let off at Dejvicka the fare is 60 koruna ($2); to the end subway station, on the green line, fare is 90 koruna ($3). You can also arrange for the shuttle bus to drop you off at your hotel. Depending on the number in your party, the fare will range between 360 and 720 koruna ($11-$22).
If you are only going to Prague it is not advisable to rent a car because the center is closed to cars, and parking is most difficult in the rest of Prague.
Ruzyne International Airport (IATA: PRG, ICAO: LKPR) serves Prague, Czech Republic. Located 10km from the city centre, the airport is a hub for CSA Czech Airlines.
Most flights leave Ruzyne International Airport from the North Terminal. The South Terminals, South and South2, handle a few irregular flights, as well as VIP Flights, special flights and small aircraft.
The airport contains two runways in service: 06/24 and 13/31. Former runway 04/22 is not used anymore. The most used runway is 24 due to the prevailing western winds. Runway 31 is also used often. Runway 06 is used rarely while runway 13 is used only exceptionally.
Public transport to and from Prague city center involves taking the bus number 119 to Dejvická metro station and transferring on to the green metro line (Line A) there or express number 100 to Zlicín metro station (yellow Line B) farther from the city centre. A typical journey takes about 40 minutes. There are also other bus services that run after midnight when the metro line is not in operation.
As the capacity of the airport has been reaching its limit for the last couple of years (as of 2005), further development of the airport is being considered. Besides regular repairs of the existing runways, the Czech Airports Authority (CAA, Czech: Ceská správa letišt) began the preparations for building a new runway, parallel to the 06/24 runway. The construction with estimated costs of CZK 5-7 thousand million is scheduled to begin in 2007 and the new runway marked 06R/24L (also called the BIS runway) is to be put into service in 2010. It will be over 3500 m long and will lay about 1500 m south-east of the present main runway. The 24L runway will be equipped with a category III ILS allowing landing and taking off even under very aggravated conditions.
