BMI Regional (British Midland Regional Limited) (East Midlands) has announced the first nonstop routes linking the two fastest growing regions in Norway – Stavanger and Northern Norway starting today (January 23). The new routes mean Norwegians can now fly direct, nonstop to Harstad/Narvik Airport (Evenes) and Tromsø – important hubs for the Norwegian oil and gas industry without having to connect via Oslo. Similarly, new direct flights to Kristiansund and Gothenburg also commence today.
The services linking Stavanger to Harstad/Evenes and Tromsø in the far north of Norway are predicted to provide savings of NOK 400 million to the Norwegian oil and gas industry.
