TER Edinburgh Castle to right from Arthur's Seat

Czech Airlines, the national carrier of the Czech Republic, will fly two new direct routes to Poland from next month, as well as an additional link to Prague.

From 14 July, the airline will fly directly between Edinburgh and Lodz and Rzeszow and will also operate an indirect service between Edinburgh and Prague via Lodz.

The aircraft will fly Tuesdays and Saturdays between Prague and Edinburgh via Lodz, where there is a 30 minute stopover, it will then fly from Edinburgh to Rzeszow before returning to Edinburgh, Lodz then Prague.

These new flights will offer the strong local Polish community in Edinburgh, and indeed tourists from all three countries, more choice of ways to travel to and from Edinburgh Airport and a better selection of services.
