Prague’s Václav Havel Airport (IATA: PRG) has unveiled a newly reconfigured aircraft parking stand, gate layout and passenger waiting area.  The parking stand can accommodate either one large aircraft with a wingspan of up to 213ft (65m), or two smaller ones with a wing-spans of up to 118ft (36m).  The new facility is located in Terminal 1 and its waiting area can accommodate up to 430 passengers.  It is connected to three departure gates: A3, A4 and A10.  The first two gates leading directly to the aircraft via airbridges while the third is at ground level and will be used to bus passengers to and from aircraft parked on remote stands.Airport CEO Václav Rehor commented: “This Project to develop our new aircraft stand and gate responds not only to our growing number of checked passengers, but also to the increasing number of long-haul flights being operated out of Václav Havel Airport Prague.

“This is the last large development project launched for our passengers this year. Nevertheless, we have already started preparations of other projects, including the rebuilding of our baggage sorting facilities and providing new check-in counters in both airport terminals, which will be completed next year.”
