Widerøe increases flights to Bergen from Aberdeen

Norwegian regional carrier Widerøe is to add further flights to Bergen from Aberdeen International Airport later this year.

From September, there will be an additional departure on a Sunday, meanwhile a third daily flight on a Wednesday will also be added to the flight schedule, bringing the total to 13 weekly flights.

The Norwegian airline also flies direct to Stavanger and recently increased its number of flights to Norway’s energy centre by five per week.

Aberdeen International Airport managing director, Steve Szalay said: “We’re pleased that Widerøe is further strengthening its presence here at Aberdeen International Airport. Bergen is an important business and leisure destination for us and we warmly welcome Widerøe’s decision to provide yet more flights for passengers.

“By September our terminal transformation project will have reached completion and we look forward to welcoming passengers to the new and improved airport facilities.”

Widerøe’s director regional network, Espen Bakke-Aas Steiro said: “A growing market and an increased demand from passengers traveling between Norway and Aberdeen has enabled us to further increase our service offering on this route.

“This is the second time this year that we have increased our production from Norway to Aberdeen. Widerøe added five weekly departures from Aberdeen to Stavanger in June 2019, and following this latest addition we now offer five daily departures between Aberdeen and Norway.”

Widerøe operates a fleet of 40 Bombardier Dash 8 aircraft and three Embraer E190s to more than 40 domestic destinations in Norway and six international destinations.
