About the Airport
"A place where flying has a tradition."
Pardubice is closely connected with the most famous Czech pilot and aircraft designer who became famous mainly for pioneering long-distance flights. This important personality is Ing. Jan Kašpar.
Several decades have passed since the era of flying began, but aviation has remained in Pardubice and has grown. In 1911 when Kašpar’s famous flight Pardubice – Velká Chuchle took place no one even knew that almost a hundred years later Pardubice Airport would handle over 184,000 passengers a year.
