Widerøe’s Flyveselskap adds four new international routes

Widerøe’s Flyveselskap briefed the industry on current trends, fuel prices and its four new international routes:

The fuel price and the weak krone pose major cost challenges and are demanding for the industry. Widerøe has secured 60% of its fuel consumption over the next 12 months. The airline has reduced production during the most demanding winter months to meet an expected reduced demand throughout the winter.

In the same way as a number of other companies, Widerøe’s Flyveselskap experiences major challenges with deliveries of spare parts. This results in poor regularity on individual days and increases downtime for aircraft that are due for inspection or repair. The company works closely with our parts suppliers to shorten the delivery time and ensure stable delivery in the future.

“October was somewhat weaker than planned. The market is characterized by a lack of predictability, even if the booking pattern is beginning to approach a normal situation. This winter is going to be demanding, and we have taken the steps necessary to meet this, says CEO of Widerøe Stein Nilsen. We expect an improvement towards the summer and the summer program will reflect this”, concludes Nilsen.

However, the desire to travel is far from gone and Widerøe’s Flyveselskap is planning for another strong summer. The company is therefore increasing capacity on a number of routes from spring. In addition, Widerøe is starting four new direct international routes from Bergen. In this way, the investment in Bergen is strengthened, and provides more travel opportunities for everyone who uses Bergen as a hub.

The new international routes are:

– Bergen to Liverpool – start on March 31, 2023, flights on Mondays and Fridays

– Bergen to Hamburg – start on March 30, 2023, flights on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
*From May – also flights on Tuesdays

– Bergen to Dublin – start on April 27, 2023, flights on Thursday and Sunday.

– Bergen to Munich – start on April 28, 2023, flights on Monday and Friday

The already established route to Billund will be increased from twice a week to daily from the end of March. All routes will have good connections to Widerøe’s other route network.
