– In London, most of them leave from Gatwick or Stansted airports instead of Heathrow, making them less attractive options for Americans.

Booking
– When you book, look for nonstop flights and remember that „direct“ flights stop at least once.
– Try to avoid connecting flights.

Fares
– Tend to rise dramatically during the busy summer season, particurarly from June through September.
– There are many discounts during the slow winter months.

Cutting Costs
– The least expansive airfares to Prague are almost always on European budget carriers like EasyJet or Ryanair that fly from secondary airports.
– This means that you will not only have to change the airline, but also the airport, so you should consider whether flight connections can be timed so that you can transfer from one airport to another without an additional overnight stay.

Flying Times
– A nonstop flight from New York to Prague takes about 8 hours, but the entire trip can take much longer (12-14 hours) if you must change planes in Europe.
– The flight from London to Prague taktes 2 hours.
– The flight from Vienna to Prague takes less than an hour.

Check-in
– Always find out your carrier´s check-in policy.
– Plan to arrive at the airport about 2 hours before your scheduled departure time for domestic flights and 2 ½ to 3 hours efore international flights.
– Always bring a government-issued photo ID to the airport; a passport is best.
