Vueling Airlines Launches Direct Prague – Florence Route

Vueling Airlines launches a new direct flight from Prague to the capital city of the Italian region of Tuscany, Florence. The regular route will be serviced up to four times a week effective on September 2019 and a total offer of 6,900 seats for next summer season.

The new service will be offered on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays and will be operated with an Airbus A319, the third one based in Florence airport, where the airline is leader in terms of capacity.

This route will be the fourth destination of Vueling in Prague that already connects Vaclav Havel Airport with Barcelona, with two daily flights, Roma Fiumicino, with one daily flight, and Paris Charles de Gaulle, with five weekly frequencies.

“For quite some time, we have recognised the great potential of flights headed to Italy. The announcement of another new route within the Tuscany region confirms this trend. The route will also support inbound tourism in the Czech Republic, a very popular destination for the Italian market,” Vaclav Rehor, Chairman of the Prague Airport Board of Directors, said.

We are absolutely delighted to add this new direct service as Florence is one of the most important airports in Europe and Vueling is already the largest airline in the Tuscany capital,” said Krassimir Tanev, General Manager International Markets of Vueling Airlines. “While we bring Prague closer to our customers in Italy, Spain and France, thanks to Vueling, Czech customers will now be able to benefit from competitive fares from Prague to four of the most popular and demanded destinations in Europe: Barcelona, Paris, Roma and Florence,” added.
