Widerøe to Commence Bergen to Dublin Route

A new service by Norwegian airline Widerøe between Bergen and Dublin has been announced to start in April 2023. The new service will open up other new locations in Norway for Irish travelers with connections to Bodø and Tromsø in Northern Norway, putting access to the midnight sun in the summer and the Northern Lights in the winter season within easy reach. Bergen, a World Heritage City and a European Capital of Culture located in the west of Norway, is renowned for its architecture and its mix of traditional wooden houses and brick buildings, as well as modern architecture. It’s also home to the iconic Bryggen harbour district, one of northern Europe’s oldest ports. The new service will operate on Thursday and Sunday. The flight will depart from Bergen at 17.25, and arrive in Dublin at 18.20. The return service will depart from Dublin at 19.00 with a 21.45 arrival into Bergen. Widerøe will use their Embraer 190-E2 aircraft on the route.

Commenting on the new route announcement, the Commercial Director of Widerøe, 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 travelers 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.”

Also commenting was the Managing Director of Dublin Airport, Vincent Harrison who said, “This new route opens the door for Irish travelers 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.”
