As Denmark’s capital Copenhagen got a connection with the old Viking city of Haugesund in Norway, a Viking ship cake was baked to celebrate. Cutting the cake were Richard Kongsteien, Widerøe’s VP public relations, and Jorg Willy Bronebakk, Norwegian Ambassador to Denmark, while Copenhagen Airport’s route development manager Majid Khan (left) looked on.

The ribbon for Wideroe’s new route between Haugesund in Norway and SAS’ Copenhagen hub was cut by the mayors of Karmøy and Haugesund, Aase Simonsen and Petter Steen. As passengers boarded the aircraft, Haugenes Airport’s manager Øystein Østensjø and Wideroe’s VP public relations Richard Kongsteien posed for the camera. (Photos: Tor André Johannessen)
- Widerøe, SAS’ Norwegian regional subsidiary, on 31 October resumed flights between SAS’ Copenhagen (CPH) hub and the Norwegian town of Haugesund (HAU), located on the country’s southwest coast between Bergen and Stavanger. The service, which was previously operated until 2008, is now flown six times weekly with 78-seat Q400 aircraft, feeding parent airline SAS’ Copenhagen hub. Widerøe already serves Haugesund from Bergen, and Copenhagen from Kristiansand and Sandefjord.
