On a request by the American government, Prague’s Ruzyně airport has tightened security measures on US-bound flights, an airport spokeswoman said on Sunday. The request came days after a thwarted terrorist attack on a transatlantic jet. The spokeswoman did not specify the nature of the measures but said they will not affect the length of check-in procedures. During the winter season, there is only one direct flight between Prague and the United States, operated five times a week by Delta Air Lines.
A number of countries tightened security at airports after a Nigerian national attempted on Friday to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner with 278 passengers on board. Besides the Czech Republic, the US government has asked the UK, France, Italy, the Netherlands and other countries to adopt additional security restrictions.
