Our Airbnb host knew that we were heading to the airport and wrote down on a piece of paper the set of instructions to get there. There were two ways to get there via public transport (32 Kč); we chose the one via Zličín as there was less transfer required.
The metro ride took around 20 minutes (10 stops) and we just followed the sign to the bus-stop after exiting the metro station at Zličín.
We waited for around five minutes before bus 119 came and we managed get seats towards the back of the bus. Twenty minutes we arrived at PRG Terminal 2 (Schengen departures).
First impression of PRG was good. It was bright and airy and even had an exhibition on aviation history.
We were too early and the Easyjet counters weren’t open yet.
There were plenty of seats for us to wait in.
After dropping our bags and verifying our documents (check-in had to be done online), we went to the airport supermarket to use up our remaining Czech koruna. It was not easy to spend to the last koruna.
I had complimentary Priority Pass membership courtesy of my Citibank PremierMiles Visa Card. It entitles me to two free visits to any Priority Pass lounges per year and we decided to utilize mine at PRG.
There were two choices in PRG T2: Menzies Aviation Lounge and Erste Premier Lounge. We randomly chose Erste.
The agent welcomed us to the lounge and swiped my Priority Pass card twice. We managed to secure our seats at the far end of the lounge before going to get some food.
The food weren’t really inspiring and were limited to sandwiches, salads and finger food. Surprisingly there weren’t any hot options (besides soup). Despite that, we still ate quite a bit, knowing that there would only be buy-on-board later on our flight.
Travel blogger Lucky had a more in-depth review of the lounge here.
We left the lounge for Gate D6 at boarding time and I saw that our plane had already arrived.
However boarding hadn’t commenced and we had to wait in the queue.
Despite the presence of the aerobridge, we had to board through the stairs. I wasn’t complaining at all.
