Students from IHM visited “CzechTourism” and the “Vaclav Havel” Airport Prague

Students in the Fundamentals of Tourism class from the first semester of the Bachelor’s program in Hospitality Management, who study in English, had the opportunity to learn from specialists in the tourism field about how the brand "Czech Republic Land of Histories" is promoted in both domestic and foreign markets. Soňa Machová, Head of Marketing Research Department from CzechTourism, shared with our students various activities that the organisation implements in order to achieve their different goals, one of which is to attract more tourists to other regions of the Czech Republic.

The guided tour excursion of the “Vaclav Havel Airport Prague” allowed the students a great opportunity to see “behind the scenes”. In the first part of the tour, we were taken by bus around the airport area, then we took a look at take-offs and landings on the runway and saw the handling of aircrafts before and after landing. The second part of the tour focused on the interiors of Terminals 1 and 2. Students also saw one of the airport lounges (waiting rooms) for travelers in transit and the airport hotel. Our tour guide imparted interesting knowledge from the field of the travel industry.
