CSA splashes out on new Nordic routes

Czech Airlines to launch connections to seven cities



Czech Airlines aircraft will fly to a number of new destinations in the 2015 summer season, following a long period of radical cuts in capacity. In the Nordic region it will launch regular scheduled connections from Prague to Oslo and Billund. Additionally, it will launch flights between Billund and Oslo, and between Copenhagen and Stockholm.

Other new destinations will be Cork, Bilbao, Bologna and, in Russia, Kazan and Russia’s Kaliningrad exclave on the Baltic Sea.

The carrier has already started selling tickets for these new routes, with the exception of tickets for the new connections to Russia.

“After a year of cutbacks, we plan to expand the existing Czech Airlines network starting from the 2015 summer season. We feel that there is significant business potential in our new destinations which we would like to use fully. At the same time, we would like to capitalise on Czech Airlines’ great reputation in the Russian market and, effective April 2015, service a total of nine destinations in Russia,” said Jozef Sinčák, chairman of Czech Airlines’ Board of Directors.

CSA will launch operations on its Prague-Oslo route on 30 March 2015, initially twice weekly but from 30 May until the end of the summer season, four times weekly. The new service is designed for point-to-point traffic and also for transfer passengers from Norway to Mediterranean destinations.

The flights to Billund are scheduled to take off on 29 March 2015, four times a week year round, aiming at business travellers as well as tourists.

On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, these flights will continue from Billund to Oslo, the carrier explaining that it “wants to apply its successful model of the Prague – Bratislava – Košice and Prague – Hamburg – Gothenburg routes.”
