Southend to Bergen

Widerøe has started a weekly Monday service between Bergen (Norway) and Southend using a De Havilland Canada Dash 8-400. 

From the London end the 1hr 50min flight offers a fast connection to the North Sea port with good connections to eight other destinations within Norway.

Christian Skaug, Commercial Director, Widerøe, said: “We are strengthening our focus on Bergen as a hub for traffic throughout the country. With this new route we continue to build on the network Widerøe has developed in and around Bergen and Western Norway in recent years. We start cautiously, but if we see that the offer is well received, we will consider adding more weekly departures.”

Glyn Jones, CEO of Southend Airport, said: “At a difficult time for aviation the new route demonstrates confidence in the airport, and the interest people have to returning to fly to locations that continue to have low coronavirus incident rates.”
