Czech Airlines (a.k.a. CSA, or Czechoslovak State Airlines) is the Czech Republic’s national airline. It is also a member of the SkyTeam Alliance. Its main hub is in Václav Havel Airport in Prague, which is also where the airline’s headquarters are located. Czech Airlines cares for the environment, leading efforts to reduce the environmental impact of air carriage in line with the ISO 14001 standard. In addition to regular flights, CSA provides charter and cargo flights.
The Czechoslovak government founded CSA in 1923, only providing domestic flights for the next seven years, when it finally opened international flights. In 1939, the airline was terminated due to the splitting of Czechoslovakia, but recommenced in 1948, when the Communist Party gained power. CSA became the world’s first victim of mass hijacking in 1950, when three airliners were hijacked in Erding.
By 1957, CSA was the second airline worldwide to successfully implement jet services, while also being the first airline to offer regular jet only flights.
