Norwegian’s latest new route from Manchester Airport (MAN/EGCC) got underway today when it officially launched its service to Bergen (BGO/ENBR), Norway.

Bergen is Norway’s’ second-largest city & a UNESCO World Heritage City. It is known as the Gateway to the Fjords and visitors can now fly non-stop to the region from the North-West of England.

Magnus Maursund, SVP commercial Short Haul at Norwegian said: “We are delighted to offer passengers in the North West another affordable Norwegian service with the addition of our new route from Manchester to Bergen. Passengers travelling with us can enjoy our award-winning complimentary gate-to-gate Wi-Fi and modern comfortable cabin on new state-of-the-art aircraft”.

We know it’s a hugely popular route with people from the North West looking to visit Bergen and the surrounding areas and inbound with Norwegians coming to the North and especially to Manchester and Liverpool with our musical and sporting heritage.”
