Prague Vaclav Havel Airport
Prague Ruzynì International Airport is a clean and efficient airport just 10 miles (16km) west of Prague's city centre. Prague has become a popular destination for quick weekend breaks and the Old Town district offers trendy nightclubs and pubs. The airport has quick processing times and the staff are friendly. However, the shops, restaurants and bars are quite expensive. Passengers with lots of time to kill at the airport should head to the cinema in the departures hall of Terminal 2.
The airport is situated 7 miles (12km) northwest of Prague.
