Václav Havel Airport Prague airport handles flights of most European carriers and also some overseas flights. It is located 30-45 minutes by car from the centre of Prague. There is a good connection between the airport and city centre by public transport buses and taxis. Unfortunately there is no subway or train connection to the city from the airport.

Ticket Inspection

The validity of tickets can be checked by the ticket inspectors of Dopravní podnik (The Prague Public Transport Company) at any time during travel or stay in the Metro system. The ticket inspector is entitled to ask the passenger to produce his or her valid ticket, to confiscate invalid tickets, and to collect a penalty (1500 CZK = approx. 59 EUR, if paid at once 1000 CZK= approx. 39.4 EUR) in case of travel without a valid ticket. In case of unpaid freight the inspector collects a penalty 50 CZK. To prove their identity, inspectors produce yellow-and-red badges. They issue receipts for the penalty amounts.
