Norwegian Air to add Manchester-Trondheim flight

Low-cost carrier Norwegian Air is to add a twice-weekly direct flight between Manchester and Trondheim.

Services begin from August 15, with fares starting from £66.90 one-way.

The airline currently operates two flights a week from Manchester to Oslo and will operate eight flights a week from Manchester to Oslo, Stravanger, Bergen and Stockholm from March 27.

The Scandinavian carrier is also due to also increase services between Gatwick and Trondheim to five flights a week from March 27.

Executive vice president of network, pricing and planning Magnus Thome Maursund said: “We are very pleased to announce this additional route between Manchester and Trondheim.

“UK visitors from Manchester will now have easy direct access to this beautiful Nordic region and we look forward to welcoming customers on board from August 15.”

Trondheim and the Trøndelag region have been recognised by the International Institute of Gastronomy, Culture, Arts and Tourism (IGCAT) as Europe’s Region of Gastronomy 2022.

Petra Sestak, general manager of Explore Trøndelag, said: “Often called Norway’s food capital and home of Nordic flavours, the vibrant city of Trondheim is rightly emerging as one of the most interesting and culinary destinations in Northern Europe.”

In January 2021, Norwegian Air abandoned its low-cost long-haul model and trimmed its fleet of aircraft from 103 to 53 after being brought close to collapse due to the Covid crisis.
