Eastern Airways agrees codeshare with Norwegian regional airline

Eastern Airways has signed a new codeshare agreement with Norwegian regional airline Wideroe, which will provide UK travellers greater Norwegian connections via Aberdeen and Newcastle, along with improved access to the Norwegian carrier's network of Scandinavian destinations.

As part of the codeshare partnership, Eastern Airways "T3" flight code will continue to be placed on services between Aberdeen and Stavanger and Newcastle and Stavanger.  It was also added to Aberdeen – Bergen services in mid-November.

The codeshare partnership and ticketing agreement will enable Eastern Airways to offer UK connections on its services from Cardiff, Durham Tees Valley, East Midlands, Humberside, Leeds Bradford, Norwich, Southampton, Stornoway and Wick John O’Groats to Stavanger and Bergen via Aberdeen. Onward connections in Norway are also available on Wideroe’s network, including those to Haugesund, Kristiansand, Skien, Kristiansund, Molde and Sandefjord.  

Wideroe is Scandinavia’s largest regional airline, with flights to 48 international and domestic destinations.    
Kay Ryan, Eastern Airways’ commercial director, said: "This exciting new partnership with renowned Norwegian carrier, Wideroe, not only offers a new destination from Aberdeen to Bergen on the Eastern Airways network, but also ensures UK regional passengers are better connected to Norway travelling via Aberdeen. These connections through our Aberdeen hub are extremely convenient, viable options for travellers, particularly those within the oil and gas industry, heading to Norway or the UK.  With onward links in Norway, Wideroe has established a vast route network and we are delighted to be working with them."
