Florence Airport is a small, compact and easy to use airport with many similarities to London City Airport. It is a short 15 minute, four mile drive from downturn Florence. The new city-centre-to-city-centre route will be operated by CityJet’s modern AVRO RJ85 jet aircraft, with 95 comfortable leather seats. As with all CityJet flights, complimentary in-flight service, assigned seating, and checked baggage allowance are all included in all fares.

The gateway to Tuscany, Florence has a wealth of museums, palaces and churches housing some of the world’s greatest treasures.  Tuscany, the home of Chianti  wine, has long been a favourite holiday destination for discerning British travellers and a popular location for second homes.
