Widerøe to ramp up Bergen-Vagar flight schedule to four times a week

Norwegian airline Widerøe which has been offering scheduled flights between Norway and the Faroe Islands since September 2021, will be increasing their number of weekly flights between Bergen and Vagar as of May, according to an announcement from Vagar Airport.

The airline currently operates scheduled passenger fligths between the two destinations twice a week, Monday and Friday; come spring, however, the airline will double the frequency of its scheduled flights to and from the Faroe Islands — meaning they will then be flying between Bergen and Vagar on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.

“There is no doubt that this will have a positive impact on the number of travelers passing through Vagar Airport, and the Faroese tourism business as a whole,” Vagar Airport CEO Regin I. Jakobsen noted in a news release.

For its Faroe Islands route, Widerøe is using Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 planes capable of carrying up to 78 passengers.
