KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has launched a scheduled service to Florence. This is KLM’s fifth Italian destination after Rome, Milan, Venice and Bologna.
Italy is the fourth most important market in Europe for AIR FRANCE KLM. Florence, the regional capital of Tuscany, attracts millions of tourists annually, to visit the historical attractions in the city centre, such as the cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore, the Ponto and Palazzo Vecchio, and the Uffizi Gallery.
Florence is also a major commercial centre, especially for fashion, design, engineering and pharmaceuticals.
The new schedule started on 27 October. The service consists of two flights a day on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and one flight a day on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The KL1641 departs Amsterdam at 09:55 hours and arrives in Florence at 11:55.
The importance of Florence as a major tourist destination and significant commercial centre makes it an excellent addition to our network, providing our European and intercontinental passengers with even more possibilities
