Prague Airport said it was deploying more staff to prepare for an expected increase in traffic after the Czech government eased travel restrictions.
“We are increasing our personnel capacity and reinforcing the technical equipment to speed up the entire check-in process on arrivals,” said Jiri Kraus, Vice Chairman of the board for Prague Airport in a statement on August 31, 2021. “Passengers can help accelerate the arrival checks too by reviewing the current conditions and preparing all documents in advance.”
Travelers from outside the European Union who wish to visit Prague can now do so provided they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, according to new rules set out by the Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic, as of August 23rd, 2021. However, the vaccines should be approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or their own country’s relevant authority, and the travelers should come from countries that have recognized vaccine certificates.
Prague Airport said the new airport measures have been implemented in partnership with the country’s Ministry of Health, Foreign Police, and Customs Administration.
“Together, the parties thus respond to the gradually increasing traffic at Prague Airport and the possibility to visit the country for tourist activities by foreigners,” the airport operator said.
