Prague, Jan 23 (CTK) - Ceske drahy (CD) rail operator and Sky Europe have agreed on cooperation, and CD will start selling air tickets at selected railway stations as of Thursday, the companies said in a press release Wednesday.

They said they had created the CD Sky alliance.

Air tickets will be bought at a fixed price at the railway stations. The price will be lower than that of an air ticket sold by the airline. People will also have to buy a railway ticket to get to the Ruzyne airport, it will be a condition to get the cheaper air ticket.

CD will sell air tickets to cities like Milan, Venice or Brussels at Kc1,290, all fees included. Air tickets to more distant destinations, such as Paris or Athens, will cost Kc1,790. Air tickets will be available at this price six or more weeks before departure. Two weeks ahead the price will increase by Kc400 and Kc200, respectively.

Air tickets will be sold at the Brno railway station, and as of February also in Pardubice, Ostrava and at the Liben railway station in Prague. Air tickets will be available at more than 20 railway stations in the country.

Until last spring CD had been cooperating with the Czech Airlines but the latter terminated the contract as it brought no benefit to it.
