This is good news for Westerners. The new Widerøe route will run directly between Bergen and London Southend on Mondays and Fridays.
“We are strengthening our focus on Bergen as a hub for traffic throughout the country. With this we build on the network Widerøe has developed in and around Bergen and Western Norway in recent years. We started cautiously, but if we see that the offer is well received, we will consider adding more weekly departures. The London route from Bergen will run twice a week, Monday and Friday and is already booked with prices starting from 599,” says Commercial Director Christian Skaug.
Helge Eidsnes, airport director at Bergen Airport, Flesland welcomes the new route: “This news we think Westerners will appreciate. There are solid traditions for us in the West to travel to the UK, and London in particular. We see that London is an important hub for business in and around Bergen. And in addition, London is full of opportunities for adventure, culture, arts, and shopping.”
The route is served by Widerøe ‘s most modern and environmentally friendly jet Embraer 190-E2 with 114 seats.
