International Airport in Prague - Ruzyne

Ruzyne International Airport serves the main city of Prague, Czech Republic. It is located 10 miles or approx 25 km from the city centre and is a hub for CSA Czech Airlines. Most flights leave Ruzyne International Airport from the North Terminal. The South Terminals handle a few irregular flights, as well as VIP Flights, special flights and small aircraft.

In 2005, the Ruzyne International Airport served 10.8 million passengers. It contains two runways in service and a former runway that is not used anymore. The most used runway is 24 due to the prevailing western winds but runway 31 is also used often. On September 2, 2005, the first phase of new terminal North 2 opened to the public. This increased the number of airbridges in the North terminals and the capacity of the airport by one third. The new terminal was fully open on January 17, 2006.

Prague's Ruzyne Airport is northwest of the city center and has finally completed its long-overdue expansion. The new, airy, and efficient departures and arrivals terminals have lost the Communist-era feel and have many added amenities. There's a bank for changing money, car-rental offices and information stands that can help you find accommodations. Ruzyne International Airport has become a modern international hub for the new millennium.
