The directors of Czech Airlines and Prague’s Ruzyně airport said on Sunday that they have suffered financial losses between 150 and 200 million Czech crowns, due to air space being closed down across Europe after a cloud of volcanic ash spread over the continent. The director of Czech Airlines said that the company is currently not considering asking the Czech government for financial aid. The airline suffered losses of tens of millions of crowns for each day that flights were cancelled, the exact amount of money lost has not been determined yet. Prague’s Ruzyně airport saw losses of some 50 million Czech crowns during the three days that the airport was closed down.
