Florence

Florence Airport, named after Amerigo Vespucci, is managed by Toscana Aeroporti S.p.A., the management company for Florence and Pisa airports.
 
Toscana Aeroporti S.p.A. was created on 2015 through the merger of AdF – Aeroporto di Firenze S.p.A. (management company of Florence Amerigo Vespucci Airport) and SAT - Società Aeroporto Toscano S.p.A. (management company of Galileo Galilei Airport of Pisa), with the creation of a unified Tuscan airport system.
 
In 1992, the building was inaugurated and two years later the new terminal for departures was opened. The airport was expanded in 1996 and the runway, previously 1,400 metres long, was lengthened by 250 metres; the departure area was enlarged further.
