British Airways

High-End Low Fares : Expect some Frills

Having ditched its flights to the Czech capital from London Gatwick, British Airways now only flies to Prague from London Heathrow.

It's not the cheapest low fare airline flying from London to Prague, but the fact that you can get to the airport on the London Underground metro system has to count for something in terms of convenience, saving time and saving money.

How can I get these cheap flights on British Airways?

As long as you book at least a week or two ahead, you should find stacks of available fares at the prices quoted above. Be warned that if you want to fly one-way in the other direction (ie. Prague to London Heathrow), the fare BA charges in Czech Koruny is equivalent to £85 - 23% more expensive. In this case, you are better off looking at easyJet, Sky Europe or Click 4 Sky.

Click 4 Sky

Mid-Range Low Fares : Expect many Frills

Started in late 2007, Click 4 Sky is the low fare subsidiary of the Czech flag carrier CSA. But it is not (by any means) a conventional airline. It is a virtual low fares brand in the same way that Snowflake is now the SAS Denmark virtual low fares brand and fly thomas cook is a virtual low fares brand which belongs to Thomas Cook.

To you as the passenger this is unlikely to make a difference once you have booked your flight and you're on the plane, but knowing how the concept works will give you an advantage in finding and booking the cheapest flights in the first place.

Basically, the Czech flag-carrier, CSA can reasonably assume that under normal circumstances a few seats in economy class will still be empty when the plane takes off, if all economy seats are sold at normal economy fares. To get around this and maximise the yield from each flight, CSA can offer some seats at deep discounts in order to make sure the flight is as close to maximum capacity as possible (and therefore maximum yield has been achieved) when it takes off. However, by offering the deep-discounted seats under its own name, CSA runs the risk of word spreading and some people always holding out for the cheapest seats or else not flying with CSA at all - which leaves the Czech flag-carrier in a worse position than it was in before.

The solution, therefore, is to offer the deep-discounted seats under a new "virtual" brand which might attract passengers on tighter budgets who are more flexible in their travel plans and do not have the same a la carte expectations as traditional CSA passengers might do. On the one hand this allows CSA to carry on selling seats at normal economy fares, giving no indication that there are any deep-discounted seats available at all. On the other, it gives Click 4 Sky the freedom to set its own booking conditions, seat availability and fares without compromising whatever image CSA has spent millions of Koruna cultivating.

So there you have it. Click 4 Sky offers:

  • Flights between Prague Ruzyne and primary metropolitan airports across Europe;
  • A strictly limited number of available seats on every flight - so you have to be lucky, if you need something specific;
  • No one-way flights allowed - only round-trip fares available;
  • Tax-inclusive fixed fares at either a lower rate of £58 / €78 or else a higher rate of £98 / €138 on every round-trip flight;
  • a simple web-based booking engine - and once you're on board, you'll never know that you didn't book with CSA.

clickair

Mid-Range Low Fares : Expect some Frills

The Barcelona based low cost subsidiary of Iberia offers low fare flights to the Czech capital for as little as €59 including taxes from Barcelona to Prague; and €73 including taxes from Prague to Barcelona.

As with an increasing number of low cost airlines, clickair also now let you book a pair of combined flights in one go. The timetable allows for combined flights from Prague to three more cities in Spain, to the Canary Islands and to the Russian capital.

But be warned that the cost of a pair of flights on clickair can quickly add up. We found the cheapest one-way flight from Prague to Las Palmas on Gran Canaria came out to €126 including taxes, which is not bad, but pushing the limits of what we would strictly describe as a "low fare".

easyJet

Low-End Low Fares : Expect no Frills

Prague Ruzyne isn't one of easyJet's official hubs, but the low cost giant does nevertheless serve the Czech capital from as many as eight airports across Germany, Italy, Southwest England, Southeast England, UK East Midlands, Northeast England and Northern Ireland.

You can always rely on Stelios' baby to be pretty competitive but note that easyJet's lowest fares to Prague are not the very cheapest in Europe - especially if you are travelling with hold luggage.

Consider flying with bmi baby or with Sky Europe instead.

Typical cheapest tax-inclusive one-way fares (without check-in baggage) start at €26 from Dublin to Prague; £29 from London Stansted to Brno; and €31 from Barcelona Girona to Brno.
