SAS moves Bergen-Gatwick to Bergen-Manchester

New twice-weekly service starts on Jan 6; Gatwick stops Nov 1



In a move that SAS says is in line with its regional development, the Scandinavian carrier has announced plans to shift its route from Bergen to London Gatwick to the northern English city of Manchester instead. The new service, to be operated twice a week on Mondays and Fridays, will start on January 6. The old one will stop as soon as November 1. SAS already has direct routes between Manchester and Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen.
“Manchester is a key regional hub for SAS, and this decision is perfectly in line with SAS’ regional development,” Hans Dyhrfort, the airline’s regional general manager for the UK, Ireland & Iceland, commented. Andrew Harrison, Manchester Airport’s managing director described Bergen as “being the gateway to the famous fjords” and “one of Europe’s largest ports for cruise ships.”
