British Airways has announced a new daily flight from London Heathrow to Florence, Italy, for Summer 2023.
Starting on April 16, 2023, the new flight will operate daily from London Heathrow’s Terminal 5 at 07:50 on an A320Neo aircraft.
Known for its Renaissance art scene, architectural masterpieces and Tuscan fare, Florence is in central Italy, and within close proximity to Bologna and Pisa for those who are looking to explore further afield.
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.’
Florence will be one of 11 Italian cities served by British Airways from London Heathrow in Summer 2023, including Rome, Milan, Venice and Naples.
The London Heathrow to Florence flight joins a host of new routes starting in the Summer 2023 season, such as London Gatwick to Aruba and Guyana, and London Heathrow to Cincinnati, Ohio.
Return flights are on sale from London Heathrow to Florence now, starting from £114.
British Airways Holidays offers two nights with breakfast at the 4* Palazzo Lorenzo Hotel Boutique from £279pp, travelling on selected dates in May 2023. This includes economy (Euro Traveller) return flights from London Heathrow Airport and 23kg luggage allowance. Bookings are by 31 January 2023 at www.ba.com/florence
