I flew Prague-Burgas with Smartwings. The price was the same as if I flew with Czech Airlines or Bulgaria Air but the service was really low cost. No web check-in. Only 15kg checked-in luggage and only 5kg in the cabin. The in-flight service is paid only, not even water is included in the price. And their return flight was delayed...

The worst flights I've ever had. Flew to and from Prague. check-in was horrible, there's no online check-in so everyone come to the airport early to get good seats. But SmartWings open check-in counter only 2 hours before departure, this means long long line on check-in even if you came early. They couldn't check-in everyone in 2 hours so flight...

I booked my flight directly from smratwing's website so I was able to check-in online and there was no lineup for the luggage drop line at all (for some reasons,...

The whole process from booking to check-in is super easy, you don´t have to worry about check-in online, simply get to the airport and a member of staff will do it for you. Flight ok without any difficulties.

Well you get what you paid for - really downgraded plane but we got to our destination safe and on time for a low price. What brought my attention is that they work in partnership with Czech Airlines - so be aware of this if you book with Czech.

Booked through sky scanner for a flight to Prague for 11 people. I then got an email from Smartwings saying that half of my travellers have missed out on the flight that I have paid for and that if I wanted them to fly with us then I had to pay extra? I had no choice but to pay the...

Using this airline on regular basis, mostly the LGW-PRG route. Superb value pricewise, mostly new looking,clean aircraft and very pleasant and professional crew- which is not always the case on other low cost carriers.
