New Norway link puts fjords within easy reach


A new flight linking London Stansted to Bergen will offer travellers from London and the East of England easy access to Norway's famous fjords from March 2023.

Widerøe, the largest regional airline in Scandinavia, will operate a twice-weekly service to the country’s second largest city using a 110-seat Embraer E190-E2 aircraft.

Starting on March 26, flights will depart London Stansted at 18.40 on Fridays and 11.30 on Sundays with prices for one-way fares starting at £59*.

A World Heritage Site located in the west of Norway, Bergen, is renowned for its Bryggen harbour district, one of Europe's oldest ports, and as the gateway to Norwegian fjords.

Simon Gorrighan, London Stansted’s Aviation Director, said:

“We're delighted to welcome Widerøe to London Stansted, adding yet another new destination to our growing network and giving passengers even more choice when travelling from their local airport.

“This new route makes a beautiful region of Norway more accessible to UK travellers as well as being an important route for business, especially the energy industry in Norway and the East of England.”

Christian Skaug, Widerøe’s Commercial Director, said:

“We are very pleased to be flying to London Stansted from 26th March and being able to maintain London as part of our route map. London Stansted has smooth and convenient connections to the City of London, which we know our customers will appreciate.”

Several other new flights will be available from London Stansted this summer, including Belfast, Newquay, Edinburgh, Asturias, Klagenfurt, and Leipzig with Ryanair.

Meanwhile, Emirates is launching a second daily service to Dubai on May 1 and Jet2 is also adding new flights to Rome and Athens.
