Widerĝe opens new Bergen link

A twice-weekly service between Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) and Norway’s second-largest city, Bergen (BGO), is being launched on 17 August by Scandinavia’s largest regional airline, Widerøe.

Departures will be on Mondays and Fridays with connections in Bergen to other Scandinavian cities including Oslo and Helsinki. Widerøe will use the 114-seat Embraer E190-E2 jet, the first time the aircraft has operated to a UK regional airport.

LJLA CEO John Irving said: “The new service will provide passengers from across northern England with a great way to reach Bergen businesses as well as access to the fjords and the popular cruise market from there.”

Widerøe commercial director Christian Skaug noted that the airline through its co-operation with Finnair, also provided a fast and efficient gateway to the Far East through the Helsinki route.

He added: “We are excited to give passengers in both directions access to important business markets as well as presenting a gateway to the magnificent fjords of the western region of Norway.

“Also as a potential stopover to the far north with the midnight sun and Northern Lights, Bergen offers a diverse experience. from the cultural and historic to an impressive scenery.”
