New connection links East Midlands Airport with Bergen
Eastern Airways will link East Midlands Airport with Bergen, offering an early morning connection to Norway’s second largest city.
From Monday 29 March 2010, early morning daily weekday flights from East Midlands via Aberdeen provide a new option to Bergen from the region, aimed primarily at business travellers.
Weekday flights with the UK regional airline depart East Midlands at 6.40am via Aberdeen, arriving in Bergen at 11.10am local time. Services leave Bergen at 2.40pm arriving in East Midlands at 8.45pm local time.
Roger Hage, Eastern Airways’ ground services manager, said: “This new link to Norway is now possible via our frequent service to Aberdeen, which has served the business community in the region for many years. The connection from East Midlands allows us to provide an early morning link, enabling passengers to reach Bergen just after 11am.”
Bergen is located in south west Norway. It is one of Europe’s largest cruise-liner ports and is also the gateway to the world famous fjords. As Norway is the third largest exporter of oil in the world, there’s also a busy heliport at Bergen Flesland Airport serving the Norwegian North Sea oil and gas industry.
Eastern Airways has been flying from East Midlands for nearly 10 years and there are three flights each weekday on its long established service to Aberdeen.
Also from East Midlands, the airline offers onward connections via Aberdeen to Stavanger in Norway, along with Stornoway in the Scottish Western Isles and Wick in the north of Scotland.
A team of locally based pilots and cabin attendants support Eastern Airways’ operation from East Midlands Airport.
Passengers flying with Eastern Airways benefit from its “no compromise” service, with fast check-in and no charge for baggage, choice of seat or onboard drinks and snacks.
