Prague flights rise over 500% for West Ham Final

  • Flights to Prague from London have increased by a staggering 513% in the wake of West Ham reaching the Europa Conference League final

  • A round trip for a two-day excursion to Prague between May 31 – June 2 costs £97, one week before the final at the Fortuna Arena

  • However, this rises to £519, with a stop in Munich, for June 6 – June 8

  • Another alternative is to fly to Vienna, then onto Vaclav Havel Airport, but this costs £546

West Ham United fans hoping to travel to Prague will have to brace themselves for a big expenditure, according to Research from BonusCodeBets.

The final at the Fortuna Arena in Prague is taking place on Wednesday, June 7th and a return trip from London to Vaclav Havel Airport in Prague on Tuesday 6th and returning on Thursday 8th June now costs £519.

This takes just over five hours and includes a stop in Munich, but would get West Ham fans into Prague for 1pm. There is a quicker way to get to the final however, with a 6am flight into Vienna, before connecting into Prague – although this will set Hammers fans back £546.

Research from BonusCodeBets has concluded that if you were to travel to Prague a week earlier, it would cost tourists £97 for the same amount of time, and a week later for the Final is an increase of 513% on prices.

According to Google, flights to Prague typically cost between £60 and £150. Of course, the high demand from West Ham fans to get to a European final has caused the surge in prices and will likely mean hotels, car rentals and various amenities will also rise in price.
