London Stansted will soon have a direct connection to the city of Bergen, providing access to the Norwegian fjords.
Scandinavian regional carrier Wideroe will fly twice-weekly to Norway’s second largest city using a 110-seat Embraer E190-E2 aircraft.
Flights will start on March 26 and depart Stansted at 1840 on Fridays and 1130 on Sundays, with one-way fares starting from £59.
Bergen is a UNESCO World Heritage City located in the west of Norway, known for its Bryggen harbour district and as a gateway to the fjords.
Simon Gorrighan, London Stansted’s aviation director, said:
“We’re delighted to welcome Widerøe to London Stansted, adding yet another new destination to our growing network and giving passengers even more choice when travelling from their local airport.
“This new route makes a beautiful region of Norway more accessible to UK travellers as well as being an important route for business, especially the energy industry in Norway and the East of England.”
Ryanair recently announced plans to launch six routes from Stansted this summer.
