Scandinavian airline Norwegian has said that it is expanding its network at Manchester Airport with the addition of a new non-stop service to Bergen.
A UNESCO World Heritage City, the Bergen region provides visitors with captivating views of the fjords, as well as its rich history and culture.
The new route will commence on October 28, 2019 for the winter season with two weekly flights on a Monday and Friday. Passengers in Manchester and the North West will now be able to explore the Norwegian city of Bergen this winter with fares from £43.90 one way.
Magnus Maursund, SVP commercial Short Haul at Norwegian, said: ‘Norwegian’s new flight to Bergen from Manchester will allow passengers in the North West to take advantage of our affordable fares all while enjoying our award-winning complimentary Wi-Fi and modern comfortable cabin on new state-of the-art aircraft.’
Julian Carr, Aviation Director at Manchester Airport, said: ‘It’s great to see Norwegian increase its destination choice from Manchester Airport to include Bergen. I am sure this route will prove incredibly popular with the 22 million passengers in our vast catchment area by giving more accessibility to this Scandinavian city.’
Norwegian started operating from Manchester Airport in 2011 with flights on the new 186 seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft, offering all passengers free onboard Wi-Fi and live TV.
Besides the new flight, Norwegian already operates three non-stop routes to Scandinavia from Manchester Airport with three weekly flights to Oslo, two weekly flights to Stavanger and two weekly flights to Stockholm. Along with the new route the airline will now offer nine weekly flights to Scandinavia from Manchester, Norwegian said.
