Temporary Changes to Václav Havel Airport Prague Check-in Procedure

14.02.2020, Company: Letiště Praha, a. s.

Prague Airport continues to implement projects designed to facilitate the airport’s modernization and capacity increases, such as the reconstruction of the baggage sorting area in Terminal 1, which will partially affect the passenger check-in process this year. From Sunday, 1 March 2020 until the end of August 2020, passengers on flights of 22 selected carriers will be checked in at Terminal 2 instead of Terminal 1. For a period of time, the check-in process will not follow the division of the terminals to flights within and outside the Schengen Area. However, flights will still be boarded and handled at Terminal 1, just as now. Prague Airport has launched an extensive information campaign which will continue to run throughout the summer season to ease passenger orientation around the airport during the temporary change.

This case involved a suit filed by a Spanish union organization in the banking industry, not exactly the traditional players in unions fighting against exploitation of the working classes.

AmCham Leadership Case Studies: Revenue today vs. Revenue tomorrow

27.11.2018, Amcham

Success in the hotel business is governed by the RevPar rate: the amount of revenue the hotel generates per available room per month. To succeed, you need to fill as many of your rooms as possible at the maximum possible rate. The challenge is this: if you fill all of your rooms all of the time, the rooms begin to show signs of wear. And if you want to raise rates as much as possible, you have to have quality rooms with the latest technology and equipment. To keep the rooms fresh and modern, you have to refurbish them regularly. How do you maintain revenue and occupancy while still keeping your rooms and conference facilities above market standard?
