Czech Airlines Reviews

CSA Czech Airlines j.s.c. (Czech: ČSA České aerolinie, a.s.) is the national airline of the Czech Republic with its head office on the grounds of Václav Havel Airport Prague in Ruzyně, Prague. ČSA was the second airline in the world to initiate successful jet airliner services (in 1957 using the Tu-104) and simultaneously the first airline to fly regular jet-only routes (between Prague and Moscow). Today, it operates scheduled services to 92 destinations in 48 countries, including most major European cities and cities in the Middle East and Asia. It also operates charter and cargo services.

The airline runs a frequent flyer programme called “OK Plus” in reference to the airline’s IATA designation, as well as the term of approval; OK also featured prominently in its previous livery. It is a member of the SkyTeam alliance. Czech Airlines is the subsidiary of Czech Aeroholding – a group of companies that operate in air transportation and related ground handling services. Other subsidiaries of Czech Aeroholding are Prague Airport – the operator of the international airport Prague/Ruzyne, air carrier and travel agency Holidays Czech Airlines, Czech Airlines Technics providing services in technical maintenance of aircraft, Czech Airlines Handling providing passenger and aircraft handling and CSA Services providing primarily personnel services. Czech Airlines operate 32 monopoly routes from Prague Airport, including one domestic route to Ostrava, alongside with the feeding routes from Slovak city Košice. These 32 routes represent about 40% of total flights and just over 30% of total capacity. On 27 other routes, representing around 40% of flights, the airline faces direct competition from one other carrier, while on 8 major European routes (Amsterdam, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Madrid, Milan, Paris and Rome) the airline faces two or more competitors. The OK Plus frequent flyer programme gives passengers “OK Plus Miles” for flights with Czech Airlines, SkyTeam member airlines, other partner airlines or non-airline partners such as hotels, car rentals, banks etc. All these miles can be exchanged for perks such as bonus tickets, upgrades to Business Class, overweight baggage/additional baggage allowance, OK Plus Gifts in the form of gift vouchers, access to airport lounges at Prague Airport, car hire and more.

Czech Airlines offers buy on board service on some flights in addition to free service.
