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.
