KE has regular A330 service between Seoul and Prague. Delta has regular 767 service between Atlanta and Prague. I would imagine that there would be an opportunity for additional long haul flights. Prague has grown to be a prime international tourist destination in the last 15 years.

CI cargo send 744Fs twice a week, there are rumors of them starting a pax service so you would see A333s or A343s.

Give it time. Prague is a really growing place.

Hi all

I don't think PRG will become a big player as it doesn't have anything in its favour. I mean it's in the middle of Europe so most of western Europe would have to backtrack to go to the Americas, They don't have a local major and although it is a very touristy place it doesn't have any really big corporations that would bring in the business dollars.

Also it has very near great airports such as MUC, FRA, and VIE which have a very big head start on them.

Malaysian AirAsiaX has included PRG as one of the 4 potential destinations in Europe. The other 3 are STN, MAN and MOW.

It is really great to hear some possitive news on the subject. Sometimes it might be just me comparing PRG and LHR of which proximity I do live at the moment.

Thank you for your comments
