Wider√łe boost for Aberdeen service

Final steps in Aberdeen Airport’s terminal transformation project have been given new impetus with the news Widerøe is to increase flights from the Scottish complex to Bergen, extending the number of weekly services to lucky 13.

From September, there will be an additional departure on Sundays while a third daily flight on a Wednesday will also join the schedule. The Norwegian airline also flies direct to Stavanger and recently increased its number of flights there by five a week.

Airport managing director Steve Szalay said: “We’re pleased Widerøe is further strengthening its presence here. Bergen is an important business and leisure destination for us and we warmly welcome the decision to provide more flights.

“By September our terminal transformation project will have reached completion and we look forward to welcoming passengers to the new and improved airport facilities.”

Widerøe regional network director Espen Steiro added: “We are thrilled to announce two additional weekly departures to Bergen thanks to a growing market and increased demand from passengers traveling between Norway and Aberdeen.

“It is the second time this year we have increased our production between Norway and Aberdeen after adding five weekly departures to Stavanger in June. With this latest addition, we now offer five daily departures to Norway.”
