Bergen is being added to low cost carrier Norwegian’s Scandinavian network from Manchester airport.

Twice-weekly flights start on October 28 with departures on Sundays and Tuesdays.

Fares start at £42.90 one-way.

The airline already runs three weekly flights to Oslo, two a week to Stavanger and two to Stockholm.

Senior vice president commercial short haul, Magnus Maursund, said: “Norwegian’s new flight to Bergen from Manchester will allow passengers in the north-west to take advantage of our affordable fares.”
