Yesterday saw the return of direct flights between Edinburgh (EDI/EGPH) and two airports in Norway with Loganair (LM/LOG).

The Scottish airline now flies to Stavanger and Bergen direct from the Scottish capital three times per week for the first time since the routes were suspended in 2019.

Flights to Stavanger operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays while routes to Bergen operate on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Both are operated by an Embraer ERJ145 jet.

Kay Ryan, Loganair’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We are really excited to launch the recommencement of our international services between Edinburgh and the Norwegian cities of Bergen and Stavanger.

“As we start to see European travel strengthen as summer approaches, it is the ideal time to bring back two services that were, pre-pandemic, incredibly popular for both leisure and business travellers looking to enjoy all that Edinburgh, Bergen and Stavanger have to offer.”

Kate Sherry, Aviation Director at Edinburgh Airport, added: “Seeing these routes return to Edinburgh with Loganair is further evidence that things are really moving in the right direction as we continue our strong recovery.

“Welcoming back more routes between Edinburgh and Norway allows us to enhance connectivity for leisure and business passengers from both countries.

“For us it’s about offering passengers choice, and we’re excited to work with Loganair on helping people experience all Bergen and Stavanger have to offer.”
