Leoš Janáček Airport Ostrava (IATA: OSR, ICAO: LKMT), formerly Ostrava-Mošnov International Airport, is the airport of the city of Ostrava in the Czech Republic, a major economic and industrial centre. It is located 20 km (12 mi) to the southwest of the city and also acts as a point of entry to northern Moravia and Czech Silesia.
NATO Days in Ostrava, a military air show, has been an event at the airport since 2003.
The airport is open 24 hours daily. As well as being able to serve aircraft as large as an Antonov An-124, the airport has a heliport that allows it to serve helicopters, alongside fixed-wing aircraft. Due to its distance from the city centre, there are no noise restrictions enforced at the airport.
Construction of a new terminal started in July 2005. It cost CZK 320 million (approx. 10.66 million EUR) and opened on 13 December 2006. In 2008 a new maintenance hangar was opened. A new train terminal located 50 metres from the international airport terminal was opened in 2015.
Frequently Asked Questions about Ostrava Leos Janacek Airport
“Someone calling this airport? Poor terminal facilities, not possible to get to Ostrava from there at 10pm apart from taking a taxi. On departures gates have been overcrowded with drunk czech holidaymakers. Ufff, next time I will think twice to book my flight here.”
“Nejvíce chybí free WI-FI, v hale uklizeno a čisto, odbavení rychlé, v restauracích draho. Velmi chybí pravidelné, na lety navazující autobusové linky ze spádových měst. Na cestě od Příbora už třetí! rok pokračující oprava jednoho mostu a uzavřená silnice od dálnice značně komplikují dopravu na letiště.”
“Dobrá dostupnost, v hale čisto, odbavení rychle. Trošku dražší restaurace a stánky na letišti. Možnost dobrého vlakového spojení na Ostravu a dále, avšak musí na letadlo navazovat. Pokud nenavazuje, není jiná možnost, než individuální dopravy autem, protože autobusy tam moc často nejezdí. :) --- Good getting to the airport, clean and modern, fast check-in, friendly staff, but a little bit expensive restaurants and kiosks there. There is a chance to get to Ostrava by train, but the train must go, if not, only individual transport is possible, because bus goes very rarely. :)”
“OSR is a small and sleepy provincial airport but it is also the only one in the country which has a direct rail link to and from the city it serves. I had to get a flight at 5.30 am, so I took the first train from the Central Station at 3.57 am and was at the airport exactly half an hour later. The check-in was quick while the security check was maybe a little too thorough but I guess they can afford to spend more time on each passenger when there aren't too many of them. The transit hall wasn't dead despite the early hours - there was a shop and a café open. The hall itself is rather spacious with plenty of seats. Furthermore, there is a business lounge in one end and a smoking cabin in the other (unlike PRG where the only chance to have a smoke is in a cafe provided that you invest in their expensive beverages). There is free wi-fi throughout the terminal (240 minutes per day). The connection was suffficiently fast both for my phone and laptop but if you need faster internet, you can also get it by paying a small sum to the provider. Boarding is quick and efficient with bus transportation to the plane. All in all, a very civilized experience without any hassle.”
