Kay Ryan, Loganair Commercial Director, Faith MacIntyre, Loganair Cabin Crew and Graeme Bell, Inverness Airport’s MD are getting ready to tuck into the Loch Ness-inspired cake baked to herald the start of Loganair’s flights from Inverness to Bergen. The service originates in Manchester, and provides the airport with a fresh one-stop connection to Norway too.
- Loganair used the last seven days to commence operations to Bergen (BGO) from Manchester (MAN), via Inverness (INV) on 10 May. The flights are flown by the airline’s sole ERJ 145 (not the pictured Saab 340) on a three times weekly basis. In addition to the regional jet, the UK airline has an eclectic fleet, operating three DHC-6 Twin Otters, two Dornier 328s, five Saab 2000s and 16 Saab 340s, according to ch-aviation’s listing for Loganair. While there is no competition on the sector from Inverness to Norway, SAS does offer direct flights from Manchester to Bergen on a twice-weekly basis. Graeme Bell, Inverness Airport MD said: “The Highlands are a popular destination for Scandinavian visitors. These additional services further increase connectivity between Scotland and Norway. We have been working with local businesses, in Scotland and Norway, to provide routes that best meet their needs.This new Bergen route is a result of that hard work. Scandinavia is a valuable market for business and leisure travellers, we look forward to supporting the new service and we are continuously looking for additional routes.”
