Airport Transportation

Václav Havel Airport Prague (PRG), formerly Prague Ruzyně International Airport, is located 10km (6 miles) west of the city center. Terminal 1 (T1) is for intercontinental flights including flights from the UK, North America, Near East, Africa and Asia, Terminal 2 (T2) is for flights from EU countries, and Terminal 3 (T3) is for charter flights.

Taxis are available from Terminal 1 and 2. Fix Taxi and AAA RadioTaxi are the official taxi services from the airport. Both taxi services are at guaranteed tariff prices, according to the number of kilometres passed. Approximate fare for taxi: tariff 19,90 -23,90 CZK per km, the Hilton Prague is 10km from the airport, so the cost will be approximately between 420CZK and 460CZK (about $20 to $23 USD). Both taxi companies will take online reservations. Alternatively use fixed tariff taxi: Prague Airport Taxi

Prague has cars services - Uber and its local competitor LiftAgo. Pricing is roughly same as taxi services.

Public transportation is also available. There are two ways to get to the IETF 104 Meeting venue:

  • the airport 100 Bus to the Metro B Zlicin station (take the yellow Metro B line to the Florenc Metro Station)
  • the airport AE bus to the Metro C Hlavni nadrazi station (take the red Metro C line to the Florenc Metro Station)

Florenc station is a five minutes walk from IETF 104 venue.

Additionally, there is a shared ride shuttle service Prague Airport Transfers. They take online bookings up to the day of travel. From the booking page it looks like the shared ride is roughly half the cost of a taxi. The same company will also book a private car for up to four people.

There is a page of public transport company describing airport transfer and transit schematics

Miscellaneous Information

Local etiquette on tipping in restaurants: 10% is normal to tip, and even when the bill says "Service is not included" it means "the TIP is not included," service is always included. If you were satisfied it is common to leave around 10% tip (rounding up to some nice number when paying) but if you weren't satisfied you don't have to leave anything. If you on the other thought that the service was exceptional nothing is stopping you from leaving more.

Tipping by credit card is considered somewhat undesirable, as some establishments will take part, if not all, of a credit card based tip "for the house" rather than passing it along to the server. If you are paying by a credit card, give the server a tip when s/he returns your paying slip, or if paying by cash just round up the bill as you are paying.

It is unnecessary to tip your Taxi driver. However, it is appropriate to round up the fair or add a few extra coins for exceptional service.
