There are a variety of options depending on your location or method of transportation.  

Václav Havel Airport is also accessible by personal car, taxi, or rental car.

Airport Shuttle Buses

If you are in an area close to the Hlavní Nádraží, Masarykovo Nádraží, or Náměstí Republiky stations then you can walk to transfer to another vehicle to get to the Airport Express Bus, which run through these stops and is operated by Czech Railways. We recommend purchasing your tickets beforehand because they are cheaper if you buy them online. You can also use the Minibus Cedaz, which is operated by AAA Taxi, to get to the airport. This service is more expensive. Minibus Cedaz runs between Náměstí Republiky and the airport every 30 minutes.

You can also take advantage of private transfer services or shuttles that provide door-to-door service. These door-to-door services are more luxurious than the other transportation alternatives. If you are planning on using a private transfer service you must make a reservation online.


There are a few bus lines that stop at some of the metro stations in the city and go directly to the airport. If you’re in the city center, these buses that go directly to the airport take about 45 minutes. Bus lines that go through the city include lines 100, 119, and 191. If you’re close to the city center, the most practical option is to take advantage of the metro station that bus 119 passes by. If you are traveling to the airport after midnight you have to use Night Bus 510. Bus line 100, which departs from Zličín on metro line B, gets to the airport in 18 minutes.  

Bus line 100 runs every 12-30 minutes. Bus line 119, which departs from Nádraží Veleslavín on metro line C, gets to the airport in 17 minutes. Bus line 119 runs every 5-20 minutes.

Pavlova to the airport in about 42 minutes. This bus also passes by Arbesovo náměstí.


Although the Prague metro network is quite advanced there is no direct access to the airport by metro.

However, you can take the metro to access the airport shuttle buses. You can access bus line 191, which goes directly to the airport, from the Petřiny Station.

The Prague metro is divided into three main lines, A, B, and C. The A Line, also known as the Green Line, operates between Prague Castle, Lesser Town, Old Town Square, Wensceslas Square in the New Town, and Depo Hostivař.

The B Line, also known as the Yellow Line, starts at Zličín Station south of Lesser Town and runs to Můstek Station, which intersects with the A Line. From there it continues to Černý Most Square, which is east of Old Town. The C Line, also known as the Red Line, departs from Letňany Station and intersects with the B Line at Florenc Station and intersects with the A Line at Muzeum Station. From there the C Line continues to the Háje Station.


Another way to transfer to the airport buses is by taking the tram to the transfer locations. You can take trams 1, 2, 7, 9, 10, 18, 20, 22, 25, or 36 to transfer to the airport buses, which are close by. Trams are another way to access locations that the metro doesn’t.

The trams depart from the metro stops and go to various locations in the city. The tram network is a system that relieves local transportation. Trams run every 4-10 minutes during the day and every 30 minutes after midnight.  


Trains aren’t used as much for urban transportation. They are used more as an alternative method of transportation to other cities or countries. The high-speed trains that are used to travel between cities are a very popular method of transportation. The Praha Hlavni Nadrazi Train Station is the main departure point for these trains. In addition, some trains depart from Nadrazi Holešovice Station. You can access this station using metro line C. You can also use the train to transfer to the airport buses.  


Taxis are an expensive method of transportation in Prague. If you want to ensure comfortable transportation, renting a car would be a more viable option. Nevertheless, taxis are easily accessible in all parts of the city.
