Past and Present: Václav Havel Airport Prague was actually a resolution to the insufficient capacity of the Kbely airport back in the 1930s and this was decided by their government. In 2000, the political and economic changes had gravely affected PRG. Even new air transportation companies and institutions by then were founded while other ceased operation. The succeeding years were not crucial for Václav Havel Airport Prague, they were able to increase the volume of passengers and even add more terminals in 2014.
Future: The new projects of PRG will soon enhance the image of the public area outside Terminals 1 and 2 and increase apron capacity. The aim is to obtain a bid to reorganize transportation and create an urban concept for the public and development areas for preparing the construction of railway connections and the new parking system.
The current interior of Terminals 1 and 2 is also to undergo modification to evoke the beginning of passengers’ holidays in Prague. These projects were planned to meet growth at Prague’s tourism magnet.
