Prague Airport & Transport to the Center

10 Nov

Airport Prague RuzynePrague International Airport Ruzyne is located on the northwestern outskirts of the city. It has two terminals for civil flights. Terminal 2 is for arrival and departures of flights from and to the countries within the Schengen Area. All other flights are operated from Terminal 1. At the Prague Airport you can find all the services, as at any other airport in Europe or World.

As a individual traveler you have three possibilities how to get from the airport to the center – public transport, taxi, shuttle bus.

Public Transport – there are only buses running from the airport. The bus stops are in front of each terminal. You can choose from three buses:

  • Bus number 100 – direct line from the airport to metro station Zlicin (yellow line “B”).  The way takes 18 minutes.
  • Airport Express “AE” – direct line from the airport to the Main Tran Station, which is also a metro station and is in the center, just a few steps from the Wenceslav Square (Vaclavske namesti). The way takes 35 minutes.
  • Bus number 119 – regular line, by this bus you will get to the metro station Dejvicka (green line “A”). The way takes 24 minutes.

For this transport you will need a ticket for 26,- CZK, it is valid for 75 minutes and and you can change during the transport. This ticket you can buy in the arrival hall. It would be hard to say which bus is the best, it depends on the location of your hotel. If you would need any help with finding the right connection you can ask me.

Taxi – there are official taxi cars at the airport.  The station of this yellow cars is just in front of the arrival hall. Price depends on the destination and traffic situation, to the center of Prague it is aprox. 600,- CZK.
