Prague Airport Guide - airport map

Prague Airport (PRG) is located 17km west of the city centre.

Hundreds of flights arrive at Prague Airport every day, providing direct connections to the Czech capital from cities throughout Europe, North America, Asia and Africa. Around 15 million passengers pass through the airport each year.

Prague Airport has two main passenger terminals:

-Flights from outside the Schengen area (for example, flights from the UK, USA and Asia) arrive at Terminal 1.

-Flights from within the Schengen area, which covers most of Europe, arrive at Terminal 2.
Prague Airport is a clean, modern airport which is easy to navigate. From the furthest gate to passport control is no more than a 10-minute walk.

A Tourist Information Centre is in the arrivals hall at both terminals. Open daily 08:00-20:00.

A Public Transport Information Centre is in the arrivals hall at both terminals. Open daily 07:00-21:00.

Currency exchange (Bureau de Change) is available in the arrivals and departures halls at both terminals (although better rates are available in the city centre).

Cash machines (ATMs) are at both terminals. The ATMs in the baggage hall charge high transaction fees, so wait until you exit customs and use the official bank ATMs in the arrivals hall. The ATMs of Česká spořitelna, ČSOB, UniCredit and MONETA banks are all fine to use:

-At Terminal 1, exit customs and in the arrivals hall the ATMs are to the right, by the stairs.

-At Terminal 2, exit customs and in the arrivals hall the ATMs are to the left.

Alternatively, you can wait until you travel into the city before you withdraw cash. Several banks with ATMs are located in and around Wenceslas Square.

Free WiFi is available throughout the airport. Search for Prague Airport WiFi Free.

There is good 5G and 4G reception for devices connecting to Vodafone, T-Mobile, O2, EE, Three, China Mobile and other mobile phone networks.

For passengers departing Prague, both airport terminals offer a range of facilities, including bars, restaurants, cafés and coffee shops, airport lounges, and local and international shops.

Restaurants are mostly fast-food and Czech pub style eateries. Both Costa Coffee and Starbucks have outlets too. However, the best place to eat at Prague Airport, in terms of food quality and price, is the self-service canteen located upstairs. This is where the airport workers and airline crews go. It offers hot Czech food and salads, and is relatively inexpensive.

Airport shops sell duty free goods, including jewellery, watches, luxury branded clothing and perfumes, plus Czech beers, wines, Champagne and spirits. Tax free shopping, offering savings of up to 21%, is available to passengers departing on flights bound for destinations outside the EU.

A Tax Refund Desk, to reclaim VAT on purchases made in shops in Czechia, is located near passport control.
