Karlovy Vary Airport is a small airport 5 km from the resort center. How to get to the center – I tell in this article.
Karlovy Vary Airport website – http://www.airport-k-vary.cz/ru/ (in Russian)
The airport in Karlovy Vary appeared in 1929, but in 2009 a modern building was built that meets all international requirements and standards. Today, the airport is popular, most of all, among those who fly for rest or treatment to Karlovy Vary. Also, since 2018, the Russian low-cost airline Pobeda opened its flights to Karlovy Vary, therefore, the popularity of the airport among Russian tourists will only grow.
The airport has 1 terminal, but is actually divided into 4 parts: Schengen flights, non-Schengen flights, lanes and VIP flights. The airport scheme is presented below:
Karlovy Vary Airport has free Wi-Fi, cafes and bars, a duty free shop, and a tax-free return point (in the Czech Republic, the return is 19%).
A distinctive feature of the airport is the presence of an observation deck on the 2nd floor – in the departure zone.
Karlovy Vary Tickets
Transfer and taxi from Karlovy Vary Airport
The most convenient and fastest way to get to the city is by taxi. Ideally, book it in advance, so that you will be waited for by your arrival and quickly arrived at the hotel. When ordering a taxi in advance, you will already know the exact price. And if you have additional wishes (for example, you need a child seat), then it is better to indicate this also in advance. One of the taxi services in advance is intui.travel . The cost of a transfer from Karlovy Vary Airport will be from 22 euros per car, a place in a shuttle – from 10 euros.

Bus from Karlovy Vary Airport.
If you want to save, then you should use the city bus number 8. The bus runs several times a day and arrives in the city center at the Tržnice stop. The fare is 25 kroons (this is only about 1 euro).
Also, if you want and no luggage, you can walk 🙂
Car rental at Karlovy Vary Airport
Karlovy Vary Airport offers car hire. The principle of renting does not differ at all from car rental in Prague and Prague Airport, as I already wrote.
The cost of car rental in Karlovy Vary is from 20 euros on the mechanics and from 30 euros on the machine. Two services that I recommend are rentalcars.com (you booked cars through it not only in Prague, but also in Armenia ), and rentacarfor.me (this is a unique service in which you book not a car class, but a specific car!). In the latter, the amount of deposit and deductibles is much lower!
