Let´s have a look at Prague Airport Transfer and how to use it. How to get to the city and back to the airport then?
Although there have been many discussions about prolonging one of the metro roads to the airport or building a train connection, nothing has been realised so far. So, the only public transfer connection with the city are bus lines 100, 119 and Airport express.
-Bus 119 goes from Nádraží Veleslavín to Prague airport and it takes 15 minutes to get there. Nádraží Veleslavín is one of the metro stations on line A (green), so it´s easy to get there from the city.
-Bus 100 goes from Zličín to the airport and the route takes 18 minutes. Zličín is terminal station of metro B line.
Both, of the bus lines are part of Prague public transport system and price for one ticket is CZK 32. The ticket is valid for 90 minutes.
Airport Express is a special bus going from Praha Hlavní nádraží (main train station) to the airport. This bus is run by České dráhy (national train transfer company) and the tickets may be bought in the train station. The bus goes every 30 minutes and the ticket may be combined with standard train ticket if you ask for it. But remember, always have your ticket before you get in. It´s not possible to buy a ticket at the bus driver.
This is probably the most common way to get from the airport to the city. But be careful – Prague taxi drivers are known for overpricing the rides. Sometimes they try to take advantage of the tourists and charge them with higher fee.
