Czech Airlines is continuing with its renewal of its aircraft fleet in accordance with its development strategy. As part of this process, the Czech Airlines fleet is undergoing optimisation with the aim of strengthening the position of Czech Airlines as a continental European carrier. Czech Airlines will therefore be acquiring two new Airbus A319s, which it will use mainly for European routes. The first will be incorporated into the fleet in 2009 and the second in 2010. This means that in 2010 the medium-haul fleet will be composed of 18 modern Airbus A320s and 17 Boeing 737s. The new aircraft will be used on regular routes. The first aircraft will be replacing one of the oldest Boeings in the fleet, which will be returned to its owner. The second new aircraft will replace one of the Airbus A320s, which will be incorporated into the Czech Airlines charter fleet. This means that tourists on medium-haul routes travelling to their holidays will also be able to enjoy the advantages of modern Airbus aircraft. The two Airbus A319s will be acquired by Czech Airlines through operational leasing.
