Airports in Czech Republic
Prague's Vaclav Havel Airport (formerly Ruzyne Airport) lies around 10 miles (16km) northwest of the city centre. There are two main terminals, so travellers should make a point of reading their tickets carefully and noting where they're arriving and departing from. Terminal 1 (T1) caters for flights outside of the EU's Schengen zone. Terminal 2 (T2) handles flights within the Schengen zone. Terminal 3 is reserved for private and charter flights. Vsitors heading downtown by car or taxi should expect the trip to take about 30 minutes, and an extra 20 minutes during rush hour (7-9am and 4-6pm).
