NIZHNY NOVGOROD, April 22 (Itar-Tass) —— Czech Airlines have opened a regular route between Prague and Nizhny Novgorod. The first jet from Prague landed in Nizhny Novgorod on Sunday.
“The flight from Prague is another window to Europe opened for Nizhny Novgorod residents by the partner of Urals Airlines,” Nizhny Novgorod Airport General Director Alexander Sinelnikov said. Both Russian and Czech airlines have an interest in this route. There will be one flight per week so far, but the traffic intensity may grow to three flights per week at some point.
The Nizhny Novgorod International Airport will offer flights to 25 destinations, including 14 international and eleven domestic, from March through October 2012, Sinelnikov said. “We are working to improve the quality of passenger service and to open new routes. Turkish Airlines have taken an interest in Nizhny Novgorod, and we have made a cooperation offer. The only question is when this cooperation may start. I do not rule out that may happen in 2012-2013,” he said.
Last year the Nizhny Novgorod International Airport had over 461,000 passengers, and the passenger traffic grew substantially in the first quarter of 2012.
This airport is one of the oldest in Russia. The first regular flight on the Moscow – Nizhny Novgorod route was made on July 15, 1923. Nizhny Novgorod is a reserve airport for jets routed to Moscow.
