Prague to have direct flights to Florence

The route will start next September and fly four times a week

Vueling Airlines is launching a direct air link between Václav Havel Airport Prague and Florence Airport next year. The route will be available from Sept. 15, 2019, four times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. The carrier will use an A319 Airbus configured for one travel class with 144 passengers.

The last time Václav Havel Airport had regular direct flights to Florence was in 2013. Since then, only special Christmas flights operated by Vueling went to this destination.
Estimates show that more than 40,000 passengers in both directions could use this route annually.

“We have seen great potential in Italy for a long time. And the announcement of another new line in the Tuscany region confirms this trend. The line will also support inbound tourism to the Czech Republic, which is a very popular destination for the Italian market,” Václav Řehoř, chairman of the board of airport management company Prague Airport, said in a press release.

Florence lies on the River Arno and in Italy’s Tuscany region. It is considered to be the cradle of the Renaissance and since the Middle Ages has been an important cultural center. Since 1982, the historical city center has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The region is known for its wine and cuisine.

Spanish low-cost carrier Vueling Airlines is based in the Greater Barcelona area with hubs in Barcelona–El Prat Airport and Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport in Rome, Italy. The airline began operations July 1, 2004.

Vueling serves over 100 destinations in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Currently the airline has a fleet of 115 aircraft composed of Airbus A319, A320 and A320 planes, with 45 A320neo planes on order.

Its name comes from the Spanish word vuelo, meaning flight.
