Who is Flying to Prague and What Deals They Have

Flying to and From Prague – Tips and Resources


The location of Prague Airport almost in the centre of Europe make Prague flights to most of the capital cities of the continent less than two hours. The following companies operate flights to Prague. I’ve included the base country, city/town and airport if specified. You’ll also see their group alliance (Sky Team, One World, Star etc) and many of them will have Prague flight deals at various times. I’ve also included their partner sites for Prague hotels deals and Prague car hire deals if they have any. Webpages listed and airport codes in brackets.


Flying to Prague with Easyjet from Gatwick

Easyjet bag drop at Gatwick is largely automated so be really accurate with the weight. More than 1Kg over your limit and you will not get a boarding pass until AFTER you have paid for the excess. Easyjet now has the allocated seating system so either you’ve chosen your seats or you’ve been allocated a random seat number. What does this mean for you? Well SB (Speedy boarders) will go first, then people needing assistance etc. All the people that are left will be divided in two. Rows 1 to 14 will board via the front door (usually the airway). Rows 15 to 30 board via the rear door. No problem when it’s nice weather but, if it’s raining the 15-30 people will get wet.

Easyjet has a “1 bag” policy i.e. one bag with your stuff but they do allow you to carry a separate duty free bag. Women should note that the “1 bag” INCLUDES your handbag. Your hand luggage must be of the standard size 56x45x25 to be accepted at the gate. Easyjet will only guarantee that the smaller hand luggage i.e. 50x40x20 will get on board with you. They have a special size box that your luggage has to “easily” fit into. At the start of the flight they’ll have this turned so the “larger” bags will fit but once more than half the flight (this depends on the number of people who have checked luggage into the hold) has gone through the gate they often turn it around so only the smaller bags will fit. What happens next? If your bag does not fit in the smaller slot then it will go in the hold.
When flying from Prague, Easyjet to the UK uses Terminal 1 so be aware not to carry any drink not in a secure airport clear bag otherwise it will be confiscated at the gate x-ray area. On the UK departure side they have stacks of Evening Standard newspapers before you get on the travelator.


Flying to Prague with British Airways from Heathrow

The UK border control is now automatic i.e. you scan your boarding pass. If your boarding pass does not scan then go back to the people at the check-in desk who will print you a new boarding pass. Be aware that the BA flights from Heathrow to Prague leave from Terminal three and as such they almost exclusively use gate 24. Gate 24 has a, b, c, d and e, gates. The reason for this is that you’ll be going out to the plane on a bus. This means that you absolutely MUST be at the gate no later than 20 minutes before departure otherwise you’ll miss the last bus and be offloaded. I’ve sat at gate 24 many times and seen people miss the evening Stockholm and Vienna flights. It’s never funny when you witness the anger and distress caused by being too late. As you go into a common area gate they generally call cardholders (Gold, Silver, Bronze) etc to board first but after that its a free-for-all. If you want to be sure of boarding first then either be waiting by the entry door when they call the flight or have a seat in row 16 or more as these seats are called first. Arriving in Prague, the EU border gates are on the right with chip machines (but look over to the left to see if there’s a free “all passports” gate that can be used).


Prague to Heathrow

If you are flying to London Heathrow and you’re in a rush then get a seat as far forward as possible. Business class passengers get their own transfer coach but the second coach generally loads within 10 minutes. When leaving Prague at passport control, look to your right on the other side of the metal barrier. There is always at least one “EU” and “All passports” gate and there’s usually not a queue. The UK IRIS border system has now finished (typical that they closed something that actually worked) so EU passengers have a choice of the regular show-pass-to-person or the chip machine. As a rough guide to knowing how long it will take, multiply the number of people in front of you by 30 and then divide by the number of desks or chip machines. Sometimes it’s faster to use the chips, sometimes not.


The Last Flight from Prague to Gatwick

Easyjet’s last flight from Prague to Gatwick is notorious for being late. If you are trying to make a train connection at Gatwick then it may be a problem. if you miss the last public train to London i.e. the one that stops at Clapham Junction and Waterloo then your only other option is the Gatwick Express to Victoria. If you could miss all options then seriously consider having the details of the airport hotels in your phone as you have to make online reservations to get a booking code and then use that to check in.
