Aberdeen International Airport has announced the launch of a new service to Haugesund in Norway by Loganair.
Starting Monday, February 24, Loganair will operate the Haugesund service all year round four times a week on a Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. It is the fourth route to Norway from Aberdeen including Oslo, Stavanger and Bergen. Haugesund is a lively city on Norway’s west coast and also serves as a gateway to explore mountains, fjords and waterfalls.
Steve Szalay, Aberdeen International Airport Managing Director said: ‘We’re proud to welcome the new international Loganair route connecting the north east of Scotland with Norway.
‘The new route strengthens Aberdeen International Airport’s links with strategically and economically important regions, boosting the local economy and providing greater choice for holidaymakers.
‘Haugesund has some stunning attractions including the Langfoss waterfall which was voted one of the top 10 most beautiful in the world. I had the pleasure of visiting Haugesund last year. It is such a beautiful spot with a lively and charming town centre. The locals I met were also keen to visit Aberdeen and see our wonderful local attractions. We warmly welcome the service operated by Loganair and look forward to seeing our passengers take advantage of this stunning location.’
Kay Ryan, Loganair’s chief commercial officer, said: ‘As an airport, a city and a gateway to some of our most popular routes, Aberdeen is very important to Loganair.
‘The addition of Haugesund to our Aberdeen schedule opens up yet another European destination to passengers in the North East and we look forward to helping them discover everything this stunning destination has to offer.’
