Security to be beefed-up at all international airports in Czech Republic


The government is planning to invest close to 600 million crowns to increase security at the country’s international airports in Brno, Karlovy Vary, Ostrava and Pardubice. A special commission is to be set up to assess their needs.

Prague’s Vaclav Havel International Airport has significantly increased security in recent years, bringing security measures in line with European norms. On Tuesday the airport’s security department received new equipment for the detection of radioactive and chemical substances. Altogether 200 million crowns have been spent on increasing security at Prague's main airport.
