Czech Airlines opens Prague – Hurghada route after major cancelations
Czech Airlines will deploy an Airbus A320 on the route.
Following the cancelation of some routes in the past weeks, Czech Airlines has introduced a new connection to its reservation system. From May 2 the airline will start flying to Hurghada, Egypt, gradually replacing Smartwings on the route.
The change follows from data in the reservation system. The route is to be operated during the summer schedule with plans of year-round operation. The flight schedule expects a gradual daily operation, with Smartwings aircraft still being deployed on some days during the first week. Czech Airlines will deploy an Airbus A320 on the route. As with Smartwings flights, most of the capacity will likely be used by travel agents.
At the beginning of April, Czech Airlines made a large reduction of flights. Connections to Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Malta were completely canceled. The route to Brussels ended last week, and in May the airline will stop flying to Barcelona, Madrid and Rome. Flights to Paris will be reduced to four flights a week from the current daily frequency. For Czech Airlines, the cancelation of routes to Kyiv and Moscow, which have long been profitable, is a noticeable loss.
