Loganair restores key air services to Oslo from Aberdeen
Loganair has introduced six weekly flights from Aberdeen to Oslo, operating from Sunday to Friday. The year-round link is operated with the airline’s 49-seat Embraer 145 aircraft. The route is particularly important for the energy sector, which has business interests in both cities. 60% of Norway’s total international exports (as of 2021) have come from its oil and gas sector, which is continually going from strength to strength.
The route from Aberdeen to Oslo is Loganair’s latest international Norwegian connection this year, following the revival of flights from Edinburgh to Bergen and Stavanger in June, following the pandemic.
Luke Lovegrove, Chief Operating Officer, Loganair, said: “We’re delighted to restore the important Aberdeen-Oslo route today. We know it’s been hugely missed by the business community and are confident it will support growth and strengthen ties between the North-East of Scotland and Norway.”
Mark Beveridge, Operations Director, Aberdeen International Airport, said: “We are delighted Loganair has launched this year-round Oslo route, and it was great to see the first aircraft take off from our airport. Loganair is a valued airline partner, and we warmly welcome this route giving our passengers a chance to visit the Norwegian Capital and allow visitors to see what our region has to offer.”
