Delta Air Lines is going to resume its direct flights from Prague to New York, JFK Airport, effective May 26, 2022. Throughout the summer flight schedule, the airline plans to operate the route up to seven times a week using Boeing a 767-300 aircraft.
“The resumption of direct flights to New York, which was one of the most attractive long-haul routes operated from Prague Airport in 2019, is excellent news primarily for Czech passengers. They will be able to enjoy a convenient and fast connection to the east coast of the United States after a two-year pause. Before the current crisis, more than 70,000 passengers flew between Prague and New York every year, which represents a strong potential, able to support up to a year-round direct connection with Prague,” Jiří Pos, Chairman of the Prague Airport Board of Directors, said, adding: “The re-launch of the route is, among other things, the result of negotiations carried out by Prague Airport representatives at the World Routes Development Forum, currently underway in Milan, Italy.”
