Europe-North America Fifth Freedom Routes: Is Prague next?

Tue Jul 09, 2019 6:41 pm

What are some of the existing fifth freedom routes on the TATL sector? Are any new ones in the making?

One of the rumors I recently heard was an Emirates' DXB-PRG-ORD or DXB-PRG-BOS idea (likely on a 772/773, but extremely hypothetical). Could EK's brand make this route work year-round, potentially with B6 codesharing?

So far, Prague has struggled to attract regular, year-round service to North America, despite its rapidly growing business and tourist traffic (and unmet need to markets like BOS, LAX, ORD and SFO). I think Prague's main appeal for fifth freedom routes is a lack of a major network carrier to compete with, similar to OS in VIE and LO at WAW, but it suffers from fluctuation outside of the winter and summer holidays.

I wouldn't say Prague in the recent years has struggled so far... last year AA added PHL-PRG and this year upgauged the aircraft from a 763 to an A332.

UA launched EWR-PRG this year on a 763.

I think EK still does DXB-MXP/ATH-JFK?

LAX-LHR on NZ

Thanks, meant to say regular & year-round. Corrected now.

Nope, dropped LHR-EWR in favor of LHR-BLR.

Jet Airways had AMS-YYZ until they shutdown recently.
