Prague’s Václav Havel Airport has unveiled a reconfigured aircraft parking stand, gate layout and passenger waiting area.
The stand can accommodate either a single widebody airliner with a wingspan of up to 213ft (65m) or two smaller single-aisle aircraft with up to 118ft (36m) wingspans.
The new facility, in Terminal 1, features a waiting area – for up to 430 passengers – connected to three departure gates: A3, A4 and A10. The first two lead directly to the aircraft via airbridges; the third, at ground level, will be used to bus passengers to and from aircraft parked on remote stands.
Airport CEO Václav Rehor explained: “This project to develop our new aircraft stand and gate area meets the increasing demand of passengers using the airport, but also the increasing number of long-haul flights being operated out of Václav Havel Airport Prague.
“This is the last large development project launched this year and we’ve already started preparations for other projects – including the rebuilding of our baggage sorting facilities and providing new check-in counters in both airport terminals – which will be completed next year.”
