Norwegian carrier Widerøe , the largest regional airline operating in the Nordic countries is to commence a new twice weekly service from Dublin to Bergen from 27th April 2023, operating on Thursday and Sunday using Embraer 190-E2 aircraft.

Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison, said “This new route opens the door for Irish travellers to one of the most scenic parts of Norway, with the city of Bergen providing a gateway to the famous Norwegian Fjords. The addition of this exciting new destination is yet more good news for Dublin Airport as we continue to expand our route offering for our passengers. We are delighted to be working with Widerøe and look forward to this route opening next spring.”

Tourism Ireland CEO Niall Gibbons said “Today’s announcement by Widerøe is good news for Irish tourism in 2023, as we continue to restore growth in inbound tourism. As an island destination, we know there’s a proven direct correlation between access and growth in visitor numbers, so this new flight will certainly help boost visitor numbers from Norway. We’re looking forward to working closely with Widerøe, Dublin Airport and other tourism interests, to maximise the promotion of this new service. The Nordic Region is an important market for tourism to the island of Ireland. In 2019, we welcomed 256,000 Nordic visitors, whose visits delivered €116 million for the economy.”

Widerøe Commercial Director Christian Skaug said “We are extremely happy to share the news that we will start flying to Bergen from Dublin in April 2023. We have high hopes for this route, both for travellers from Norway to Dublin, and for the Irish to discover Norway and Bergen. The route is tailor made for excellent onward connections into the famous Norwegian fjords and the breath-taking scenery of the north.”

Widerøe is headquartered in Bodo with bases in Bergen, Oslo Gardermoen, Sandefjord Torp and Tromso operating a fleet of 35 DHC8-100/400s and 2 Embraer 190-E2 aircraft.
