New regular air service to connect Ostrava and The United Arab Emirates

Starting on Friday, 23rd September, a new air service will be launched on the Ostrava - Dubai route. This regular air service will be operated by SmartWings airlines, which will deploy modern Boeing 737 planes on the route.

"We have been seeking to launch an air service from Ostrava Airport long-term, not only for tourism purposes, but also to make our region more accessible to business partners from all over the world. I believe this direct flight connection between Ostrava and Dubai will not only be welcomed by tourists, but also business people from our region,” says Miroslav Novák, President of the Moravian-Silesian Region.

”We will not only be offering fares at very attractive prices, but also a convenient flight schedule. Departures from Ostrava will be scheduled at 10 a.m. and arrive in Dubai at 5:45 p.m. Flights will depart from Dubai an hour later and arrive in Ostrava at 11:05 p.m.,” said SmartWings General Manager Radek Müller. He added that the demand for flights to the United Arab Emirates is continuing to rise. "SmartWings has been flying from Prague to Dubai daily for nine years now. Flight tickets for the new connection from Ostrava can be purchased at and from all authorised ticket sellers,” said Radek Müller.

"Dubai is a long-planned destination; the commencement of flights on this route was previously announced in spring. However, opening this line does not mean we are ending our activities in relation to other carriers; in October, we plan to launch a route to Milan and we are currently negotiating with regard to other destinations,” confirmed Pavel Schneider, the CEO of Leos Janacek Ostrava Airport.

Passengers travelling from Leos Janacek Airport in Mošnov can take advantage of regular flights to Prague, Dusseldorf, Paris and London. In the summer season there are also regular and chartered flights to popular resorts in Greece, Bulgaria, Egypt, Turkey, Spain, Tunisia, Montenegro, Italy and Croatia.
