Eastern Airways to launch flights to Bergen

Regional airline Eastern Airways will launch new flights to Bergen from Aberdeen and Newcastle next month.

Regional airline Eastern Airways will launch new flights to Bergen from Aberdeen and Newcastle next month.

Flights to Norway’s second largest city will be introduced from October 5th, with flights from Aberdeen departing at 08:40 and services from Newcastle taking off at 10:30.

These flights touch down in Bergen at 11:10 and 13:35 (local time) respectively.

Eastern Airways’ chief operating officer Chris Holliday said he hoped the flights would prove attractive to business passengers owing to Bergen’s standing as a "key base for the global energy industry".

"The announcement of two new non-stop services to Bergen from Aberdeen and Newcastle clearly demonstrates our commitment to developing routes between the UK and Norway," he commented.

Flights to Bergen may prove to be a success with leisure passengers too thanks to the city’s status as gateway to the country’s fjords.

Elsewhere, the carrier will also operate flights to Aberdeen from Stavanger between Monday and Thursday at 07:30 (local time), while a new evening service will also take effect.

Eastern Airways recently introduced an early morning year-round flight to Liverpool from Southampton.
