Bergen-Dublin Flights Begin

Tourism Ireland has welcomed the launch of Norwegian airline Widerøe’s new flights from Bergen to Dublin. The airline will operate two flights per week on the route, helping to boost tourism from Norway to the island of Ireland this year.

Tourism Ireland invited five Norwegian travel journalists to fly to Dublin on the inaugural flight and visit Ireland.

Pictured at Bergen Airport are: Jeanette Wilhelmsen, Reiseperler; Lina Lindegaard Carlson, Widerøe; HE Keith McBean, Ambassador of Ireland to Norway; Emer Mac Diarmada, Tourism Ireland; Merete Moen, World with a Suitcase; Terje Engø, Magasinet Reisefot; David Michael Kurtz, Travel News and REIS; and Inger Linn Krogh Hansen, Linns Reise.

Emer Mac Diarmada, Tourism Ireland’s Manager for the Nordic Region, said: 

“The new Widerøe flight from Bergen to Dublin is great news for Irish tourism. As an island destination, we know the importance of direct, non-stop flights cannot be overstated; there’s a proven correlation between access and growth in visitor numbers, so this new flight will be an important factor in growing visitor numbers from Norway. We look forward to working closely with Widerøe to maximise the promotion of this new service to Dublin.”
