New direct service between Prague and Chicago already from spring 2020

Václav Havel Airport Prague will have another direct connection with the United States of America starting with the 2020 summer flight schedule. American Airlines announced the launch of new seasonal service between Prague and Chicago from May 8 2020. The airline will operate the route with modern Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft.

The connection will be available to passengers five times a week from 8 May (departure from Chicago) to 24 October. Thus, the Dreamliner operated by American Airlines should land at Prague Airport for the first time on the morning of Saturday, 9 May. Based on Prague Airport’s estimates, more than 48 thousand passengers will use the new route in both directions during the season.

The route will be flown with American’s state-of-the-art Boeing 787-8 with 234 seats in Flagship Business, Premium Economy and Main Cabin classes of service. Tickets for the route will be available for purchase on 12 August 2019 via the carrier’s website: www.aa.com

Next year, travelers from Prague will thus be able to fly directly to four destinations in the United States of America, namely to New York with Delta Air Lines (JFK) and United Airlines (Newark), to Philadelphia and to Chicago with American Airlines.

“A new and direct flight from American Airlines between Prague and Chicago is a wonderful development that will contribute to an even stronger U.S.-Czech partnership. As the U.S. Ambassador and as a businessman, this will make it easier for companies in both of our countries to start new businesses or expand existing ones. Of course, it is also great news for increasing people-to-people ties between America’s heartland and the heart of Europe,” stated H. E. Stephen B. King, U.S. Ambassador to the Czech Republic.
