Widerøe will add a third daily flight on weekdays to Stavanger (Norway) from Aberdeen International Airport.

Aberdeen International Airport managing director, Steve Szalay said: “Stavanger and Aberdeen are closely linked due to oil and gas projects across the North Sea. The cities share the same passion for the energy sector and is a key destination for our business travellers.

“The extra flight adds flexibility to those travelling on business, but also opens up Stavanger as a leisure destination too.

“Widerøe’s commitment to Aberdeen with the additional week day service is fantastic and we look forward to welcoming passengers to our newly refreshed terminal.”

Widerøe AS vice president public relations and commucations, Silje Brandvoll said: “We are very happy to be able to strengthen our service offering between Aberdeen and Stavanger. There is a very strong business relationship between Aberdeen and Stavanger and many of our loyal customers have been with us for decays on this route.

“By adding this extra flight we offer more flexibility and choice for our very important business travellers. Leisure travellers can also enjoy more seats available to the Fjord region of Norway, Stavanger.”
