The largest airport in the Czech Republic is the Václav Havel Airport in Prague, formerly called Ruzyně and renamed after the Czech president in 2012. Its official website is accessible under this link. The airport is situated on the outskirts of Prague, but the connection with the centre is very good. The AE (Aeroport Express) bus line will take you to the Main Train Station in the centre in 30 minutes. The line has its own fare and the tickets are available directly from the driver. There is also a number of regular fare buses going from the airport to different metro stations, such as Nádráží Veleslavín or Zličín. More details are available here:

The average price per kilometre in a taxi is CZK 20 (EUR 0.75, USD 0.85, CNY 5). The final amount to be paid depends on the city, Prague usually being the most expensive. The price for the trip from downtown to the Prague airport ranges from CZK 500 (EUR 18,) to CZK 700 (EUR 25,). Unfair taxi drivers are everywhere, but their number in the Czech Republic is decreasing - to avoid the remaining ones, do not take a taxi directly in the street and rather call one by phone. Use only taxis that are clearly identified and ask about the price to your destination beforehand, if it is too high, do not get on.
