British Airways announced today they will launch a new daily route between London's Heathrow Airport (LHR) and Florence Aeroporto di Firenze-Peretola (FLR) starting in the spring of 2023.

BA is set to launch the new daily flight from London Heathrow's Terminal 5 starting April 16th, 2023. The flight will depart at 07:50 and will be operated by an A320Neo aircraft, one of the most advanced planes in the air. 

The majestic city of Florence is situated in the heart of Italy and is widely regarded as being one of the most vital cultural hubs in all of Europe. Nicknamed the 'Cradle of the Renaissance' and famed for its historic art legacy, it has a plethora of stunning architectural wonders to awe any visitor.

Whether you are looking to explore the beautiful countryside or venture further afield to other Italian destinations such as Bologna and Pisa, Florence is an ideal base for any traveler looking to experience all that Italy has to offer.

Neil Chernoff, Director of Networks and Alliances at British Airways, said: “We know our customers love visiting Tuscany, which is why we already operate flights from London City to Florence. We’ve added this new route from London Heathrow to the Tuscan capital to offer them even more choice to explore this incredible Italian region.

“Not only is this good news for UK travellers, but also for those connecting in London to and from US destinations. The flights’ timings have been optimised for connectivity to popular routes, including New York, Boston and Chicago.”

British Airways has announced plans to offer flights from London Heathrow to 11 Italian cities in Summer 2023, including Florence, Rome, Milan, Venice and Naples. This expansion marks a significant increase in the number of destinations served by the airline in Italy and is sure to provide travelers with more choices and opportunities than ever before.
