The Čedok Travel Corporation contracted route will be in operation until December.
Prague now has a direct connection to Madagascar. On Saturday evening, a Neos Boeing 787-9 took off from Václav Havel Airport to Nosy Be in Madagascar. This is the first ever direct connection between the Czech Republic and Madagascar. The flight is expected to take about eight hours.
For the inaugural flight, Neos used a four-year-old Dreamliner, registration EI-NEW, in a 359-passenger configuration. The aircraft’s cabin is designed for 331 passengers in economy class and 28 passengers in business class. The route, commissioned by Čedok Travel Corporation, will be operated weekly until December.
The route is also the Prague premiere for Neos. Starting October 4, it will also fly from Prague to Zanzibar. Cooperation with the Italian airline is a response to people’s interest in traveling to exotic destinations, the travel agency said.
Čedok will continue to work with LOT Polish Airlines, using one of the airline’s Dreamliners for charter flights to other destinations. It will offer connections to the Dominican Republic or Thailand.
