Company's dispatch departments work non-stop and we get our aircraft airborne in three hours from a call. Apart from standard passenger flights we operate air ambulance, repatriations and evacuations and urgent transport of donor organs i.e. we have to be at your service night and day! Following rules of travel are currently in force (subject to continuous updating as the situation develops):
1. The general prohibition of travel from the Czech Republic is ended
Foreigners residing in the Czech Republic, like Czech citizens, will be able to travel abroad, now with the possibility of returning during the state of emergency. The purpose of travel must be in accordance with the exceptions to the prohibition of free movement imposed by the Ministry of Health. It is therefore limited to necessary and justified cases only (e.g. fulfilment of official duties, work abroad, etc.), which will have to be proven individually to the police at border crossings. Diplomatic notice from an embassy is therefore no longer required.
2. Measures after return:
On return to the Czech Republic following measures apply (citizens and foreigners):
- no restriction when returning in less than 72 hours out period
- returns after more than 72 hour period- a proof of non-infectivness (not older than 4 days) is required otherwise 14 day quarantine applies.
3. Family reunificslovnik.czation
The permission to enter the Czech Republic is newly extended to spouses and underage children of EU citizens residing in the Czech Republic. The permission only applies to those family members who are already authorised to enter the Czech Republic. However, they must announce the date and means of transport to the Czech Republic to a relevant Czech embassy in advance. They will also be subject to ordered mandatory quarantine upon entering the Czech Republic.
4. Prohibition of entry to foreigners (including EU citizens), with the exception of those with a valid residence permit, remains effective.
5. One-off transit through the territory of the Czech Republic remains possible
As up to now, the transit of EU citizens or foreigners with a residence permit in another EU Member State on the way back to their home country is possible, supported by a diplomatic note from the home country embassy. It is newly necessary to exit the Czech Republic within 24 hours in order to avoid mandatory quarantine.
Air Ambulance/ cargo:
No limitations related to Covid restrictons
Flight crews including air medical staff may fly with no limitations also to/from banned areas and quarantine regulations do not apply to them. Therefore an aircraft can be positioned wherever needed subject to limitations valid in the country of destination.
The only airport that may be used for international take-offs and landings in the Czech Republic is Prague Ruzyne (PRG, LKPR) where all our aircraft have their permanent base.
