Holidaymakers can take advantage of brand new routes to Bergen, Norway that will take flight from seven UK airports.

The new routes follows the airline’s announcement last month that is would travel to Bergen for the first time in over 15 years.


Britons will be able to book brand new flights from Bristol, Edinburgh and London Stansted Airports and enjoy expanded programmes from Birmingham, Leeds Bradford, Manchester and Newcastle.

There will be a total of 31 departures on sale for 2025 as seat capacity increases by more than double.

New flights will go to Bergen, NorwayPA

Flights to Bergen will allow customers to enjoy Norway’s famous fjords and explore all the city has to offer.

Jet2 states: “As well as giving customers access to stunning fjords such as Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord, the city of Bergen itself boasts a backdrop of spectacular mountains which are wrapped around a picturesque harbour lined with a variety of fashionable restaurants and bars.

“This historic harbour district, Bryggen, is part of UNESCO’s World Heritage List and provides visitors with one of the world’s most significant examples of the history and culture of a particular medieval settlement.”

The expansion comes as part of increasing demand from customers looking to book discovery-based experiences.
