West Ham fans forced to pay nearly 500% more for flights to Prague after reaching Europa Conference League final

  • Flights to Prague from London have increased by a staggering 513% in the wake of West Ham reaching the Europa Conference League final
  • A round trip for a two-day excursion to Prague between May 31 – June 2 costs £97, one week before the final at the Fortuna Arena
  • However, this rises to £519, with a stop in Munich, for June 6 – June 8
  • Another alternative is to fly to Vienna, then onto Vaclav Havel Airport, but this costs £546

West Ham United fans hoping to travel to Prague will have to brace themselves for a big expenditure, with prices for flights skyrocketing by more than 500%.

The final at the Fortuna Arena in Prague is taking place on Wednesday, June 7th and a return trip from London to Vaclav Havel Airport in Prague on Tuesday 6th and returning on Thursday 8th June now costs £519.

This takes just over five hours and includes a stop in Munich, but would get West Ham fans into Prague for 1pm. There is a quicker way to get to the final however, with a 6am flight into Vienna, before connecting into Prague – although this will set Hammers fans back £546.

Research from BonusCodeBets has concluded that if you were to travel to Prague a week earlier, it would cost tourists £97 for the same amount of time, and a week later for the Final is an increase of 513% on prices.

According to Google, flights to Prague typically cost between £60 and £150. Of course, the high demand from West Ham fans to get to a European final has caused the surge in prices and will likely mean hotels, car rentals, and various amenities will also rise in price.

  1. Not being “forced” though are we?

  2. Flight time is under 2 hours, even allowing for changes those details don’t make sense. A one hour stop and flight time is 6 hours?
