Prague airport has launched a cooperation with the Ecumenical Council of Churches with the aim of providing spiritual support to passengers, their relatives, and airport employees in crisis situations such as natural disasters, aircraft accidents or terrorism.
Chaplains will be available to provide pastoral and spiritual care to people of any confession at such times. The memorandum was signed by Václav Řehoř, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Václav Havel International Airport Prague, Daniel Ženatý, Chairman of the Ecumenical Council of Churches, and Petr Jan Vinš, its General Secretary.
„Spiritual support should complement the services of a psychologist which are already available at the Prague Airport in crisis situations. Although these are generally very rare in air travel, we must be very well prepared in case they should occur. This cooperation will ensure that our passengers and employees have access to excellent care in all aspects of travel,“ said Václav Řehoř.
