There are two types of bus options available at PRG Airport:
❯ Airport Express
Airport Express (named also as AE) runs between Prague Václav Havel Airport and Prague's main train station, Hlavni Nadrazi.
Hlavni Nadrazi Station is located right in the city center; it has a metro connection (Red metro Line C) so you can transfer to metro or take trains to other cities in Czechia, as well as other major European cities.
AE buses operate every 30 min. from 5:30 AM to 9:00 PM. Their bus stops (with "AE" sign) are located outside of each terminal.
The journey to Hlavni Nadrazi takes around 35 minutes; the ticket costs Kč 60 and can be bought directly from the driver.
This is a better option than public buses as it provides a direct connection to center. That’s why you don’t need to worry about your luggage.
Especially, if you stay at a place close to the train station or need to take train to other cities, you should take this bus as it takes you directly to the main train station.
❯ Public buses
Traveling to Prague center by public bus is the cheapest option, however those buses do not go directly to the center; you should transfer to metro using one of the following lines:
Those buses take you to different metro lines, be sure to check the closest metro to your hotel before starting your trip. Line 119 is the most widely-used and recommended one as it is more frequent and provides a faster connection to metro network.
The tickets can be bought from the ticket booths and machines inside the airport. The ticket costs Kč 32 and is valid for 90 minutes on any type of transportation.
Keep in mind that, if you have luggage larger than 25x45x70 cm, you should get an extra ticket that costs Kč 16.
• All the tickets should be validated in buses or metro stations to avoid fee; it is enough to validate the ticket in your first trip in case if you make connections.
• If your flight lands after 11:30 PM, you can take Night Bus No.910 (operating hours: 00:15 AM - 05:00 AM) that goes directly to Divoka-Sarka Tram Station. From there you have to transfer to Tram No.51 to get to center.
This would be an extremely hard option and should be avoided especially if you have luggage and had a long flight. It is better to book a private transfer or a taxi from the airport.
• There are also intercity buses to Kladno, Karlovy Vary and Cheb from the bus station located in front of Terminal 1. Those buses run every 30-60 minutes.
There is no metro/train connection available at Václav Havel Airport.
Taxi ranks are located right outside both terminals. A typical taxi trip to central Prague takes about 30 minutes and costs around Kč 500-600.

You can easily spot their yellow cabs line outside of the terminal. It is possible to book your ride from the taxi ranks, online or via +420 222 333 222.
