The first few hundred clients of the Čedok travel agency will be able to fly to one of the four exclusive holiday places Čedok has added to its summer package breaks today. For the first time, Czechs will enjoy exotic holiday trips without a stopover aboard comfortable Airbus A330-200 aircraft operated by Luke Air. Passengers will have the option to choose from interesting remote holiday destinations and fly from Václav Havel Airport Prague without a stopover to the Dominican Republic, the Maldives, Zanzibar, Madagascar and, in the winter season, to Cuba.
"I am very pleased we are able to offer our clients several ‘feel the vibe’ flights to exotic destinations this summer. Čedok customers will thus be able to experience the comfort of long-haul aircraft, which will become our travel standard to distant places this winter flight schedule,” Stanislav Zeman, Čedok CEO, said. "Today, we started selling week-long summer stays with departures scheduled on 3 July – to the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana Airport; on 21 July – to the Maldives; on 5 August – to Madagascar, Noise Be Airport, and on 22 August – to Zanzibar. We will launch the exotic holiday offer for the 2021/2022 winter season in the coming weeks."
From the end of October 2021, working with Luke Air, an Italian airline from the Blue Panorama SPA Group, Čedok will fly to five exotic destinations using large-capacity Airbus A330-200 aircraft, which can cover long distances without a stopover, accommodating nearly 300 passengers. The Airbus A330-200 aircraft will be based at Václav Havel Airport Prague from the start of effect of the winter flight schedule and used exclusively to transport clients of the Čedok travel agency. The Airbus A330-200 aircraft operations will increase the number of intercontinental connections from Prague Airport operated by a wide-body long-haul aircraft.
"Charter flights of the Čedok travel agency in co-operation with the Luke Air carrier will expand the offer of direct air connections from Prague to long-haul destinations focused primarily on the holiday segment of passengers. This is a positive and welcome step which, alongside contributing to the overall resumption of operations, increases the number of direct connections offered. In addition, the announced flights are fully in line with our long-term strategy, i.e., to provide the widest possible range of destinations for the entire catchment area of our airport, comprising approximately eight million passengers," Vaclav Rehor, Chairman of the Prague Airport Board of Directors, said.
The Dominican Republic, Cuba, Maldives, Zanzibar and, as a new addition on the Czech market, Madagascar are the selected destinations where clients can travel directly with Čedok from October 2021. Customers of the Čedok travel agency can choose from more than 100 hotels sold at intriguing prices.
