Charles University, Czech Republic Arrival

You’ve Arrived!

Please arrive to Václav Havel Airport Prague (PRG) on Friday, 24 January 2020.

To ensure we are aware of when you are arriving, please fill out the Travel Information form in your portal, if you have not done so already.

A shuttle driver will be waiting at the airport to greet you, holding an ECES sign. A shuttle will then take you to the Komenského dormitory, which is approximately 25-30 minutes from the airport. Please contact the ECES 24-hour cell phone: +420 733 610 173 if you need any assistance. If there are any further issues, please call Leah at + 420 739 441 285 or if it’s an emergency, please call the CISabroad 24/7 emergency phone at +1 413-210-7091.

Your bags may decide to take a later flight (don’t panic). If the airline loses your luggage you must file a report with the airline while you are still in the baggage area. It is much more difficult to file this report once you’ve left the baggage claim area. The Charles University residence/dorm (Komenského) address is: Parlerova 6, Prague 6. You will need this information in case your luggage is delayed/lost by the airline.

If your flight is delayed, please call the CISabroad Emergency phone so that we can inform our onsite team of your delay. You should also contact your Czech Buddy with your new flight details if any changes are made once you have left home.

A Pre-Arrival sheet will be emailed to you 1 to 2 weeks before you arrive onsite. This will contain more detailed information on your arrival as well as specific phone numbers and contact information if there are any issues with your flight or airport pickup.
