Eastern Airways and Wideroe sign a new codeshare agreement

Eastern Airways (Humberside) has signed a new codeshare agreement with Wideroe (Bodo) which will provide UK travellers greater Norwegian connections via Aberdeen and Newcastle, along with improved access to the Norwegian carrier’s comprehensive network of Scandinavian destinations.

As part of the codeshare partnership, Eastern Airways “T3” flight code will continue to be placed on services between Aberdeen and Stavanger and Newcastle and Stavanger. It will also be added to Aberdeen – Bergen services, which are bookable on Eastern Airways website and via travel agents from today (November 17).

This codeshare partnership and ticketing agreement will enable Eastern Airways to offer UK connections on its services from Cardiff, Durham Tees Valley, East Midlands, Humberside, Leeds Bradford, Norwich, Southampton, Stornoway and Wick John O’Groats to Stavanger and Bergen via Aberdeen.

Onward connections in Norway are also available on Wideroe’s network, including those to Haugesund, Kristiansand, Skien, Kristiansund, Molde and Sandefjord. In turn, Wideroe will be able to offer connections on Eastern Airways’ network to Norwegians travelling onwards within the UK.

Wideroe is Scandinavia’s largest regional airline operating to more than twice as many airports in Norway than any other airline. It flies to 48 international and domestic destinations.

Humberside Airport based Eastern Airways has been providing flights from Aberdeen since 1997 and Newcastle since 2003.
