This is interesting.
It seems just last year CSA dropped Bangkok in its attempt to focus on NOrth America, as its Asian services were not profitable.
This will be its only Asian destination, which will also be a new market.
I wonder if they are aiming at Czechs going to holiday, or a new cheaper back door market to Europe via its Prague hub.
Well its great news for Sri Lanka, as it continues to go from strength to strength since those airport attacks last year and with the peace talks well under way in Thailand and assuming all goes well (fingers corssed...), there is a bright future for Sri Lanka. I wonder which new airline will be next to introduce flights into Colombo.
I doubt they would codeshare this with AF.
I just checked the Czech Airlines web site and from what they are on about, it appears the main market is Czechs seeking sun and sand.
Apparenly the Sri Lankan authorities are trying to get Aeroflot and PIA back to Colombo.
Im sure there will be another airline adding Colombo before the year is out.
