Every ten seconds one aircraft of American Airlines takes off, daily the company carries out 6,700 flights. On 5. May Prague will be added to the list. The airline as well as the Airport of Václav Havel have great expectations from this step. According to Václav Řehoř, Chairman of the Board, Airport Prague should attract to Bohemia not only more tourists but also investors from the USA.
Thanks to the new connection these relations could be deepened allowing cooperation between the countries in the economic sector to be broadened to a greater extent. This is because so far, many of USA investors have been deterred precisely by the lack of a direct connection with the USA, Václav Řehoř explained.
The connection should attract more tourists from the USA to Prague and to Bohemia in general. We were interested in what the Americans most value in Prague. Roberto Antonucci, Director Sales Europe, American Airlines revealed:
Tom Lattig, Managing Director - EMEA Sales, for a change at the press conference praised our Czech beer.
In addition to Philadelphia being a historically important city where history of the USA began to be written, it is also the largest American transport node as regards air transport. People from Philadelphia may get a flight to a total of 160 destinations within the US and Canada, the Caribbean and Latin America, which is very good news for those who are heading to other destinations.
