The number of passengers passing through Prague’s Václav Havel Airport increased by around 19 percent in the first quarter of 2017 compared to the same period last year.

Among the main factors behind the increase are new routes introduced this year as well as increased capacity on the existing lines. In total, the airport handled 2.7 passengers in the quarter between January and March of 2017.

Concurrently, the airport is focusing on projects leading to improvements to the airport ground access system, parking options and the use of the public area in front of Terminals. This year, using a new urban concept of the greater airport area, the airport wants to develop these projects into a building plan which will provide a more precise idea of the future construction and changes to airport public areas.
