Czech Railways pays out almost one-third more in delays compensation

Czech Railways paid out almost CZK 7.6 million to passengers due to delays in 2023, which was roughly 31 percent more the previous year, the Czech News Agency said on Saturday. A spokesperson for the company said the increase was driven by a higher number of passengers and was also influenced by the introduction of automatic compensation payments without the need for a request.

Almost CZK 2.8 million was paid by the national carrier for delays in domestic transport, while approximately CZK 4.8 million went to passengers on international routes.
