Aberdeen is to be better connected to Norway with the launch of new flights from the north-east.
Widerøe announced yesterday it will add further flights to Bergen from Aberdeen International Airport later this year.
From September, there will be an additional departure on a Sunday, while a third daily flight on a Wednesday will be added to the current schedule, bringing the total of weekly flights to 13.
The Norwegian airline also flies direct to Stavanger and recently increased its number of flights to Norway’s energy centre by five per week.
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.”
Espen Bakke-Aas Steiro, Widerøe’s regional network director, said: “A growing market and an increased demand from passengers travelling between Norway and Aberdeen has enabled us to further increase our service offering on this route.”
