The airport's IATA code is JCL. It will offer eight flights to each destination.
Čedok Travel Corporation started selling tours to Rhodes and Antalya with České Budějovice in the south of the country as the place of departure. The local airport will get regular charter flights for the first time, marking a breakthrough in the airport’s history and meeting the requirements for receiving an IATA code.
The travel company launched the sale of August–September 2023 package holidays from the South Bohemian metropolis today. Čedok will use Smartwings’ Boeing 737 on both lines. The largest Czech carrier will deploy an aircraft seating up to 189 passengers in economy, flying to Antalya every Friday and to Rhodes every Monday in the summer months. Čedok has sixteen departures planned from České Budějovice, eight to each destination.
According to travel agency representatives, both destinations are among their most popular. This year, Čedok has also launched flights from Karlovy Vary to Antalya. České Budějovice Airport has been modernized for IFR operations in recent years; the airport is under regional ownership.
