British Airways will offer 4 flights daily for Prague - London route.

Smartwings will end its service between Prague and London’s main airport Heathrow with the last flight scheduled to depart on March 27.

The information follows from the booking system data; the change was first pointed out by the Twitter account @seanM1997. “We have taken the decision to optimize the flight schedule due to a drop in booking dynamics,” said Smartwings spokeswoman Vladimira Dufkova, adding this was also due to high fuel prices and an unstable situation.

Smartwings started flying to Heathrow last September; it had a prior connection from Prague to London Gatwick. The route from Prague to London Heathrow route was originally operated by Czech Airlines after the first wave of the pandemic.

The route to Heathrow is currently serviced by British Airways as well. From March 27, their flight schedule includes an increase from two to four flights a day.
