PRG: Prague - Terminal map, lounges, bars & restaurants
Prague Airport GuideThe airport name has just changed to Václav Havel Airport Prague. A second runway is scheduled for completion in 2014. There are also plans for a direct rail link with central Prague.
Václav Havel Airport Prague to give it its full title (or even in Czech the unpronoucable Letistê Praha-Ruzynê) is quite large, with 14 million passengers a year, and at peak times in the summer (when the airport is rammed with Brits, Aussies, and even a few lost natives) the capacity of the airport reaches capacity.
Note that the name has just changed from Prague Ruzyne International Airport - Václav Havel Airport Prague is the same place.
Never the less, facilites are better than you might expect for an old Eastern European airport. There are more than 70 shops at the airport, including gift shops and duty-free. A pharmacy is also available.
There is a bank branch as well as several bureaux de change and ATMs at the airport. A post office is located in the corridor connecting Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. Wireless Internet access is available in the lounges, restaurants and other areas of the airport terminals.
