Yes, there are still options. About to pull the trigger on one. Anyone familiar with an airport hotel in Prague that they can recommend? I'm looking at a very early departure so have to fly in the night before

There is a holiday inn I think it is... that is walking distance from the airport... but this is from memory when I have used the airport.

its worth a double check

Thanks, think its 560TP?

My dates are no longer active but the best thing to do is use Google Flights to get in the right ballpark in terms of cost and dates, put into Matrix to do the specifics of flight numbers and connections, then call the airline to book or use a travel agent. Took 9 minutes on the phone to BA to get this all sorted and my outbound LHR - ORD leg upgraded to F with Avios.

Worth noting if you are intending to get the Finnair A350 to LHR on your outbound leg there is only one departure per day at 0800, so rather than staying overnight in PRG you will need to position to HEL and stay there. If anyone has hotel recommendations for HEL I'd love to hear them

There's a Hilton on the airport grounds. Was totally comfortable, sauna in basement. Restaurant in the hotel with a small shop and within an easy walk of the shops in the airport, which were open til 9 PM or so. The airport isn't enormous, so you can walk from either terminal to the Hilton within 10 minutes or so.

I wouldn't be walking from the HI at HEL - Google Maps estimates about 5.5km walk. Use the free (and frequent) shuttle bus service.

That was PRG they were talking about, at least when it comes to walking distance

HI HEL is about 3km walk from terminals but use shuttle as mentioned.

Crossed wires, I think

PRG I am not so familiar with, HEL I certainly am.
