CSA Czech Airlines is considering introducing a
low-cost service on its Birmingham and Stansted to Prague flights.

The move is one of a number of measures being
considered by the airline’s new senior management, including introducing
paid-for food on its existing schedule and cutting global distribution system
costs. The carrier, which launched a third daily Heathrow flight last week, has
unveiled plans to cut agent commission from 7% to 4% starting on November 1.

EasyJet, Jet 2, Bmibaby and Flybe have all launched
services to the Czech capital, providing strong competition to the airline.

UK director Bohuslav Santrucek said: “We can look at a
number of things, a one-class cabin, a two-class cabin; it could be done by
airport to airport. I’d like to keep Heathrow and Edinburgh as full- service
airports because these are key markets for us.”

Vice-chairman Kamil Slavik said the carrier will be
announcing its plans before the end of next month, with the goal of
implementing any changes by the beginning of next year.
