Special Offer For Football Fans

Norwegian football supporters are expected to benefit from this route, taking advantage of the new flights to see football matches from Liverpool, Everton, Manchester City and United.

Flights are going to be affordable to such supporters with one-way fares starting from £69.

“We are excited to bring travelers in both directions. To present the magnificent fjords of the western region of Norway. Potentially as a stopover to the rough far north with Midnight Sun and Northern Lights,” says Commercial Director of Widerøe Christian Skaug.

With Bergen being Norway’s largest city, it is going to connect the UK regional market even further.
