Two new routes take Norway east

St Petersburg-Bergen and Bucharest-Oslo announced
Airport operator Avinor has revealed the arrival of two new airlines that aim to bring passengers from east and west closer to each other.
Bergen Airport has announced the arrival of its second new airline in recent months – RusLine’s twice-weekly seasonal service to St Petersburg from June 15.
Flown using CRJ 200s, RusLine will be the only carrier flying the 1,389-kilometre route.
“Following the success of RusLine’s Oslo-St Petersburg route last year, we’ve worked on securing a direct connection from Bergen, so we’re proud to announce we have been chosen as the carrier’s next international link,” says Jasper Spruit, senior vice president traffic development at Avinor.
Meanwhile, Oslo Airport has announced its first connection to Romania with new airline partner Blue Air. This comes several months after the same airline said it would be flying to Copenhagen from June 2017. Bucharest-Oslo will launch on June 15, three times weekly.
“Bucharest has been a white spot on our route map for some time now so we’re very happy that Romania will be added to the market served from Oslo,” Spruit said.
