Smartwings Group to dispatch over 300 flights during Easter

April 13, 2022
Smartwings and Czech Airlines are abolishing mandatory respirators on all flights to/from the Czech Republic as of Thursday midnight (14 April 2022). The two companies took this step in response to the abolition of the legal obligation to use mouth and nose protection on public transport in the Czech Republic. 

“Health and safety of our customers is our topmost priority, so we still recommend that passengers keep their mouth and nose covered with a face mask or a respirator while on board,” says Petr Čeněk, Chief Operating Officer, Smartwings Group. 

Travel abroad remains subject to the respective entry requirements of the destination country.

We recommend that all passengers always check the current entry requirements at their destination before travelling,” adds Petr Čeněk, Chief Operating Officer, Smartwings Group.

Return to the Czech Republic is completely unrestricted and passengers are no longer required to fill in an arrival form or submit a certificate of infection-free status before departure to the Czech Republic.

During the extended Easter weekend, Smartwings will dispatch a total of 319 flights from the Czech Republic, Poland, France, Slovakia, Hungary, Israel, the Canary Islands, and Austria to 60 destinations. A total of 210 flights will be operated from Czech airports (Prague, Brno, Ostrava) to 25 destinations. For instance, during Easter alone, 36 flights will be operated in both directions between the Canary Islands and eight destinations: Prague, Warsaw, Katowice, Paris, Nantes, Lyon, Hamburg, and Jersey (Channel Islands).

Smartwings Group’s summer flight schedule offers flights from Prague to 75 destinations. Scheduled flights and charter flights will be operated also from regional airports in Brno, Ostrava, Pardubice, and Karlovy Vary. In addition to the Czech Republic, Smartwings will operate flights from 8 hubs in 7 other countries under the summer flight schedule. As part of a new contract, Smartwings will also operate flights from six Austrian airports (Vienna, Klagenfurt, Linz, Innsbruck, Salzburg, Graz) to Greece and Spain in the coming months.
