You may want to explore some indirect discount airline flights from Basel, like easyjet to Berlin Schoenfeld then Germanwings to Prague, or easyjet to Hamburg, then click4sky back to Prague. Check and for discount airlines. Or, if those connections prove too long or too expensive, try the train. The Swiss rail system at (change language at the top of the page) might be able to give you some good advance booking fares. The run takes between 10 and 11 hours, which is probably just as long as taking a non-direct flight.
