It is possible to fly directly to Brno (depending on the departure destination, see, but it is also possible to fly to Prague and then go by either coach or train to Brno.

We recommend using they run buses directly from the airport to Brno every half an hour (you must change in Prague, but it is the same company; bookable 3 months before the journey), it lasts 02:30 hours from Prague to Brno, 04:00 from the airport to Brno, it is very comfortable, has excellent services and it is still one of the cheapest way to travel in CR.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me:
