1. 7. 2004 - Manchester Airport award for CSA Czech Airlines is second success for CSA in four weeks

Prague - July 1, 2004

An award to CSA Czech Airlines by Manchester Airport today for excellent track-keeping performance when taking off from the North-West’s No. 1 airport is the second major success for the airline in a matter of weeks.

The first award came from the users of airlines around the world by the influential Official Airlines Guides publishing company who named CSA ‘The best airline based in Central and Eastern Europe’.

The presentation was made at a prestigious black-tie dinner in London’s West End when the airline was selected from a short-list of four carriers who were all chosen from a potential award winners list of some 20 airlines.

‘To win two awards in the space of a such period of time and for two very different reasons gives us great pleasure’ said CSA’s director for the U.K., Bohuslav Santrucek.

‘The OAG award was for standards of service that our passengers have experienced and which they need – and which we work very hard to provide.

‘Today’s award by Manchester Airport gives us a great deal of pleasure because it reflects the skills of our pilots and the training they receive.

‘It also shows that CSA works very hard to be a ‘Good neighbour’ to the many thousands of people who work and live around the airport. We all value standards of life that do not impose unnecessary stress on our lives and by keeping to the take-off paths set out by the Manchester Airport authorities we believe CSA is making a very real contribution to improving the life standards of so many people in this part of the U.K. ‘

CSA operates l3 flights weekly into and out of Manchester Airport, offering non-stop flights to and from Prague hub airport where it is convenient to transfer to any of CSA`s connecting flights.

Other awards won by the airline this year include being named ‘The best airline based in Central and Eastern Europe’ by subscribers to the Official Airlines Guide and the ‘Best Airline of the Year’ award by the Scottish Airports Authority.
