Hi everyone!
Returning back home to Paris, I flew on Air France A319 from Florence, Italy after a nice week of holidays… let's go! 


  • Florence FLR - Paris CDG You are here

Florence airport information

Florence Airport, also known as Amerigo Vespucci Airport, is an international airport located in the Tuscan city of Florence, Italy. It is located about 4 kilometers northwest of the city center and is easily by public transportation (tramway T2 from the Santa Maria Novella train station) or about 15 minutes by car (many taxis are there at the SMN station).

The airport has a single terminal building with a range of amenities, including restaurants, shops, and duty-free stores. It is a relatively small airport, with just one runway and limited capacity, but it is an important gateway to Tuscany and the wider region (popular alternative airports are Bologna - Guglielmo Marconi and Pisa - Galileo Galilei).
The airport is characterized by a very short runway of 1560 meters (= 5118 feet) which often forces the pilots to make very strong braking and take-off with full engine power! 

terminal and boarding

Even though there wasn't so much people at the terminal and in the waiting area, the flight was full and we boarded right on time schedule.

By the way, FLR - CDG is the busiest route from Florence Peretola Airport with 32 flights per week (based on Flight Radar 24) ;)

It's always a pleasure to take a pictures of aircraft from outside the cabin ;)

We took off 4 minutes ahead of schedule at 09:46 in a completely clear sky and started our journey to Paris!

The flight attendants provided a light snack and beverage service shortly after take-off, which included a choice of soft drinks, coffee, or tea, and some biscuits for the morning flight.

On our way to Paris, we flew over Milan in the North of Italy, over the Alps, Geneva in Switzerland (why not next destination) and straight up to CDG.
It is always majestic to fly over the Alps mountains and observe them from the window seat of a plane!

As we started our descent to Paris, weather was becoming more and more cloudy (to overcast) but still a beautiful and particular view.

And of course the Air France's B777-300ER squad is inevitably there!

    Nice trip with a mandatory window seat to enjoy the view over the Alps.
    Yep, FLR can be quite challenging for pilots with take off in one direction only. Landing is like pilots standing on the brakes^^.
    Thanks for sharing.
