New airport terminal in Prague

The new terminal at Ruzyne airport called North 2 was opened by the president Vaclav Klaus with minister of transport Milan Simonovsky and Ruzyne’s Airport general director Hana Cernochova.

“Right now we are increasing capacity by four million, but there’s a great difference between real capacity and technical capacity. Our original terminal had the capacity to handle 6.5 million, but despite that we handled almost 11 million last year. We can increase numbers by adding more sorting machines, luggage carousels and check-in counters, so capacity could reach up to 15 million. And we will probably build another new terminal between 2015 and 2020,” said Cernochova.

Still there is question of transport into the city, with plan extend metro system to airport.
