Brno Airport Mini Guide
Brno Airport is a small airport within the city limits of Brno. Last year it helped 400,000 passengers complete their travels. Access to the airport is easy from the city and surrounding area and once there, plentiful parking spaces are available. There are dedicated spaces for those with reduced mobility.
Options to get There
The airport serves nine airlines including four scheduled operators; Central Connect, Ryanair, Wizzair and Yakutia. The chartered airlines operate on a seasonal basis.
From the Airport to Your Next Stop
There are no rail facilities at the airport but the number 76 bus into the city centre by day and the number 89 at night go to various destinations including Brno central railway station. From here it’s possible to access the capitals of Prague
. Taxis are available outside the terminal building but we’d recommend you fix a price before commencing your journey as it’s not unknown for fares to be inflated en route. For those hiring a car, you’ll need to visit the omnipotent Air Service Brno desk which seems to deal with everything at the airport.
As every possible enquiry is dealt with here, long queues can build and so it’s recommended that you send a group member through whilst others collect the luggage. Leaving the airport and continuing your journey is easy as the airport is next to the D1 Brno to Olomouc motorway.
The Airport Service Brno desk covers enquiries about travelling including tourist information, bus tickets and accommodation. It also deals with car rental enquiries and pick-ups as well as lost luggage. Foreign exchange is also dispensed there.
Facilities, Shop and Refreshments
No banks operate at the airport and passengers wishing to exchange money should go to the Airport Service Brno desk.
Shopping at Brno is very limited with simply the ‘Travel Fun’ shop dispensing duty free goods including local wine and spirits plus a range of souvenirs, cosmetics and perfumery. The shop also has a limited supply of newspapers and magazines.
Eating at the airport is slightly better with a smart restaurant called Salonek Austerlitz and a canteen style restaurant called ‘Inflight’. Beyond this there is a sandwich shop selling filled baguettes and a number of bars and cafes, all of which do light snacks.
If first aid is required, you should contact a member of staff who will find a trained first aider for you.
Passengers who Need Extra Help
Passengers with reduced mobility should inform the airport at least 48 hours before travel so that arrangements can be made to assist you. Upon arrival, go to the Airport Service Brno desk where a trained staff member will be found to assist you through the airport procedures. General assistance is available for disabled travellers but it is recommended that you inform your airline before travelling so that necessary steps can be taken to assist you during the flight. The airport conforms to EU law on disability provision.
Brno Airport (BRQ) is also known as Brno Turany Airport and it allows just under half a million passengers to go into the Czech Republic each year. While Brno Airport is itself attractive having been designed by a renowned Czech architect, customers use our vehicles to explore the city of Brno and surrounding attractions.
The Czech Republic is a fascinating country with an intense history and up until 1989 it was under communist rule. Before that time Brno Airport, which has two concourses, was owned by the state but now it is designated for public use.
