Passenger numbers fell considerably in 2009, says Prague Airport


Prague Airport handled almost one million fewer passengers in 2009 than in the previous year, according to information posted on its website. Some 11.64 million passengers passed through the airport last year, a fall of 8 percent on 2008. The decrease has been blamed on the financial crisis. The first quarter of 2009 in particular saw a marked reduction in flights from Prague Airport, said a representative.
