NIZHNY NOVGOROD, February 28 (Itar-Tass) —— The Nizhny Novgorod International Airport starts making direct flights to Prague on March 24, the airport press service told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
It is already possible to book tickets to weekly flights of an Airbus A320 passenger jetliner. The flights will be performed on Saturdays.
“The schedule is convenient, and travelers and businessmen can continue their trips from Prague to any place in Europe. Urals Airlines has a good partnership with Czech Airlines, and the latter’s routes will become accessible to Nizhny Novgorod passengers,” Nizhny Novgorod International Airport General Director Alexander Sinelnikov said.
Direct flights will not only provide tourist and business passenger traffic from Nizhny Novgorod, but also strengthen relations between the region and the Czech Republic.
“The development of economic and industrial relations, business cooperation and cultural contacts requires more intensive transportation, which makes the opening of the direct route a timely and important event,” head of the Nizhny Novgorod regional department for international, foreign economic and inter-regional contacts Irina Negrebetskaya said.
The Nizhny Novgorod airport is one of Russia’s oldest airports. The first regular flight was performed from Moscow to Nizhny Novgorod on July 15, 1923. Nowadays it performs international and domestic flights and serves as the main reserve airport to airlines flying to Moscow.
