The AE bus line operates daily at regular 30-minute intervals. In the direction from the Prague Airport, this connection can be used from 5:30am to 22:00pm, and in the opposite direction to the airport from 5:30am to 21:00pm. Airport Express low-platform buses are used in order to ensure easy boarding and sufficient space for storing luggage.
It is good to know that due to unpredictable traffic conditions on the Airport Express line’s route, travel times may be prolonged. For this reason, it is advisable to select connections which allow for commensurate transfer time. If your schedule is tight you might rather use taxis.
