We evaluate the prompt atmospheric neutrino flux using the different QCD models for heavy quark production including the b quark contribution. We include the nuclear correction and find it reduces the fluxes by 10% - 50% according to the models. Our heavy quark results are compared with experimental data from RHIC, LHC and LHCb.
