Norwegian Air is launching a brand new route from Manchester airport to Norway for 2019.

The carrier has revealed that it will be offering flights from Manchester to Bergen as of the 28th October 2019, in time for the winter season.

There will be two weekly flights on a Sunday and Thursday, all served by the airline’s Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

Fares start from £43.90 each way and can be booked on the Norwegian website .

It’s no wonder that the picturesque city of Bergen was on the airline’s radar.

Located at the entrance of the Norwegian Fjords, the city boasts plenty of culture and history.

One of its biggest attractions is the old Hanseatic wharf of Bryggen, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with colourful buildings along the waterfront.

This old Hanseatic wharf has become an iconic landmark in Norway, with the colourful buildings along the waterfront proving a particular tourist hotspot.

Built in the 18th century, it makes for a very picturesque stroll – not to mention there are plenty of restaurants and cafés that are ideal for dining with a view.

In fact, it’s tipped as one of the best things to see in Norway .

It’s worth noting that Bergen sits on the southwestern coast so if you’re planning a trip to Norway to see the Northern Lights over winter, you’ll need to head north instead.

The new Bergen route isn’t the first of Norwegian’s offerings from Manchester to Norway as the airline already offers direct routes to Oslo, Stavanger and Stockholm.

When the new flights launch in October, it will mean a total of nine weekly flights to Scandinavia from Manchester for the airline.

Magnus Maursund, SVP commercial Short Haul at Norwegian said: “Norwegian’s new flight to Bergen from Manchester will allow passengers in the North West to take advantage of our affordable fares all while enjoying our award-winning complimentary Wi-Fi and modern comfortable cabin on new state-of the-art aircraft.”
