Flybe franchise partner, Loganair is to add more seats on its Kirkwall–Sumburgh–Bergen route by switching the aircraft used on the route to a 50-seat Saab 2000, thus boosting capacity by almost 400 additional seats on the summer air link.
Loganair provides a weekly seasonal service between Kirkwall on Orkney, stopping briefly in Sumburgh on Shetland, before arriving in Bergen each Saturday between 11 June and 27 August.
Roy Bogle, Loganair director of revenue and schedule said: “This Bergen route is very popular during the summer months. Demand is high so we’ve increased capacity, which will be good news to people travelling between the Northern Isles and Norway. Summer is the perfect time to make the trip to the World Heritage city, which is surrounded by beautiful landscape and stunning scenery.”
