- Widerøe, one of Scandinavia’s largest regional airlines, launched new routes to the UK and Germany from Bergen (BGO) this week. On 10 August the carrier launched a twice-weekly (Mondays and Fridays) service to Liverpool (LPL), complementing the carrier’s existing service to Aberdeen in the UK, while on 13 August it began a three times weekly link to Munich (MUC). Both routes will be flown on the airline’s recently acquired E190-E2s, of which it currently has two, with no other operators presently offering scheduled flights from Bergen to Liverpool or Munich. With these launches, the carrier now offers five international routes from Bergen, with Liverpool and Munich joining Gothenburg, Billund (launched in June) and Aberdeen on the carrier’s route map from the Norwegian city when referencing OAG Schedules Analyser data. The next route inauguration for the airline from Bergen is Hamburg, a sector that will begin on 14 August and will also be flown on the airline’s E190-E2s. Like Munich, Hamburg will also see a three times weekly rotation. Take a close look at anna.aero’s live report of Widerøe’s inaugural service to Liverpool from Bergen.
