Prague Airport (Vaclav Havel Airport Prague, formerly Prague Ruzyně Airport) is a modern and spacious international airport located on the northwest edge of Prague and around 20 km north of the city. All international flights arrive here (there is no other civil airport in Prague).
Getting from the Airport
Prague’s Ruzyně airport is 20 km from the city centre. AAA yellow airport taxis will take you to the town centre for about 600 CZK. Pay at the airport taxi information desk in the arrivals hall, and they will issue you a receipt to give to the driver. Alternatively, use the CEDAZ minibus service that runs every half hour between the airport and Náměstí Republiky (only from 7:30 am to 7:00 pm). Tickets cost 130 CZK and are sold by the driver or from the booth in the arrivals terminal. But best way is to pre-book reputable Prauge Airport Shuttle, which will take you directly to your hotel for a bargain price. The cheapest but less comfortable way to get into town is by public transport. Take bus number 119, which goes from the airport to Dejvická metro station in about 25 minutes. From Dejvická it is about four to five stops to the centre of town. Buy a 32 CZK transport ticket at the transport information desk in the arrivals hall or from the coin-operated machine at the airport bus stop.
Buses to Dejvice metro station depart every 10 minutes from 4.15am to 23.30. Please note that the last direct bus to the metro station Dejvická is at around 23.30, and the first leaves at around 4.15am. Beyond this time getting from the airport by public transport is only possible via a night bus with night tram combination, making this journey to the city centre very inconvenient, lasting up to two hours. Tickets costs 32 CZK, plus 16 CZK per large piece of luggage.
Bus 119 – terminates in 25 minutes at the Dejvická station. Transfer to Metro line A to get to the centre.
Bus 100 – terminates in 20 minutes at the Zličín station. Transfer to Metro line B to get to the centre.
Bus 179 – stops in 4 minutes at Ciolkovského, with transfer to line S5 of the suburban railway to the centre (train takes 25 min) .
Bus 510 – a night service every 30 minutes. Goes to the south of the city, also stopping at Ciolkovského, with transfer to line S5 of the suburban railway to teh center.
In 2012 the Prague-Ruzyně airport was officially renamed to Václav Havel Airport Prague.
