Scandinavia’s largest regional airline Widerøe will again operate flights from Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

The carrier will offer twice weekly departures to Bergen in Norway from 31 March 2023 on a 110-seat Embraer E190-E2 jet.

Widerøe last operated from Liverpool in 2020 with its previous service to Bergen ceasing due to COVID travel restrictions.

It will become the third new airline to start operations from Liverpool since COVID closures, following Lufthansa and PLAY airlines which launched flights from Liverpool for the first time earlier this year.

The flights to Norway’s second largest city will operate on Fridays and Mondays and are expected to prove popular with Norwegian football fans wanting to attend Liverpool, Everton, Manchester City and Manchester United matches.

Liverpool will be Widerøe’s second UK operation, with its only other UK flights currently serving London Heathrow.

Norway becomes the 25th European country to be linked with direct connections from Liverpool.

John Lennon Airport Director of Aviation Development, Paul Winfield said the twice weekly service will allow passengers to access the Norwegian Fjords and the cruise market there.

“It will also allow passengers from across Norway to visit Liverpool and the wider North West using the region’s faster, easier and friendlier airport,” he said.

Widerøe Commercial Director Christian Skaug said: “After two challenging years with severe international travel restrictions, we are extremely happy… the route is tailor-made for excellent onwards connections into the famous Norwegian fjords and the breathtaking scenery of the north.”
