Part of Václav Havel International Airport to undergo renovation to accommodate giant A380s
Prague’s Václav Havel International Airport will undergo a makeover of one of its key areas and terminals to be able to accommodate giant Airbus A380s. In the past the plane has landed three times at the airport but regular flights, to begin from Seoul next summer, would stretch the airport beyond its capacity and would threaten delays. The airport plans to see renovation at the cost of 154 million crowns to be complete ahead of next summer.
As for the Korean Air A380 flights destined for Prague? There is a lot to look forward to: the carrier will offer some 300 economy class seats and – for the first time – business class on the plane’s top deck. It will be possible to lower 94 seats into fully flat sleeper position and those flying business or first-class will be able to make use of a salon to meet in. Twelve luxury seats at the front of the plane’s lower deck, then, are reserved for first class passengers.
