Ruzyne Airport to be renamed in honour of late Vaclav Havel Václav Havel

Prague’s Ruzyně Airport will be officially renamed to Václav Havel Airport Prague on Friday, on the anniversary of the late ex-president’s birthday. A special ceremony at the airport will also see the unveiling of an exhibition of Václav Havel photographs taken by CTK news agency photographers. A parallel photo exhibition is to open in London. The Czech Centre in New York will mark the occasion with a newly published English language collection of Vaclav Havel’s plays. Václav Havel died last December at the age of 75.
