Ruzyne International Airport, (IATA: PRG), +420 220 111 111, +420 296 661 111. Located 20km northwest of the city centre, it generally takes about 30 minutes to reach the city centre by car. The airport is served by a number of airlines.

Getting into the city from the airport

* By bus: The cheapest way to get to the city is by bus, but be sure to have some Czech Crowns ready. Buy a ticket from the kiosk in the arrivals hall or the vending machine, next to the bus stop, for 26 CZK (13 CZK extra for a larger piece of luggage). You can also buy the ticket from the driver, but it is more expensive. No machines or drivers accept foreign currencies. Take bus 119 to its terminus (Dejvická) and go downstairs to the metro. Your ticket will continue to be valid in the metro. Alternately, bus 100 takes you to subway station Zlicín (metro B). Remember to validate your ticket as soon as you get on the bus by sticking it into a yellow machine with green glowing arrow. If you fail to do so and an inspector catches you, you'll be fined 700 CZK. Tickets are also available from the DPP kiosk in the arrivals area of Terminal 1. 24-hour, 3-day and 5-day tickets are also available here.

* Airport Express (bus operated by Czech Railways): These buses leave the airport every 30 minutes; the first one at 5:46AM while the last one at 9:16PM at a price of 50 CZK per person (or less, if bought as a part of railway ticket further into Czech Republic). Tickets are available from the driver. They will take you to the railway and subway station Dejvická and Masarykovo nádraží. The last stop will be Prague's main train station ("Hlavní nádraží" which is commonly abbreviated in Czech as "Praha hl.n."). From there the bus operates back to the airport.

* Cedaz bus: These buses operate from 5:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. every half hour. They will take you past the subway station Dejvická (metro A) and into the city centre to the Námestí Republiky (metro B). Fares are 120 CZK per person. The easiest way to get to your hotel, however, is to use the company's shared-ride transfer service. They will take you direct to the door of your hotel, delivering groups of 1-4 passengers for 480 CZK or 980 CZK for 5-8 passengers. The drivers can be clearly seen straight outside the doors of the terminal building, just be sure to check that they have the correct identification.

* By shuttle: Various companies run shuttle services to the hotel and back. They can be found at the airport arrival halls. They usually charge around 600 CZK for trip and in general are a bit cheaper than the taxis.

* By taxi: The most comfortable method to reach the city will cost around 500 to 700 CZK with AAA. AAA has an exclusive contract with Prague airport to have a fleet of taxis waiting. For a bargain, call one of their competitors such as Profi Taxi, Taxi Praha, Halo Taxi and others or choose any cab standing on parkings or soliciting inside the terminal building, but then check the price before you enter the car.
