Reviews – What People Are Saying
Prague Airport has been gaining a lot of decent reviews coming from its customers. Customers are posting reviews about how efficient the airport is and how clean and spotless their facilities are. Here are some of the reviews:
“One of the best airports I have ever been on (not saying that because I am Czech :)). Well organised. Nice people. Shops. You feel like if something happens, people help you. When I was for example in Istanbul airport, I did not have such good experience when I left my bag somewhere.”
—Veronika J. (Prague, Czech Republic)
“Free wifi and a super affordable grocery store next to the second terminal. Need I say more about this airport ? Although ryanair sucks, this airport made the wait for the gate number super bearable. We were feeling a little fruit deprived so we got 11 nectarines for only 30 crowns!! Such a good deal. Lots of seating and their wifi is pretty darn good compared to the hostel we stayed in. Very clean too. There’s only 2 terminals here too so if you got off the wrong one the walk isn’t horribly far.”
—Linde H. (Davis, CA)
“The size alone of Terminal 2 is worthy of 5 stars. Very impressive. Feels like you’re in a hangar that could accommodate a double-deck Airbus. Because it’s so big, I never felt crowded here, even though we were here at the ass-crack of dawn to catch an early morning flight. Plenty of bathrooms and plenty of seating and duty free locations. Security checkpoints moved quickly. Easy to navigate.”
—Adam D. (Bloomfield, NJ)
