United Air Lines served its first flight to Bergen. After a long absence on the road serving the Norwegian destination from Newark Liberty Airport, the United States carrier landed yesterday in Bergen serving a direct flight to its airport, considered the longest for the European destination.
As a reminder, this service was launched after the cancellation of UAL flights between New York and Oslo in 2016, however, the airline was still forced to end its operations on this air bridge after the spread of the pandemic.
In a press release, United Air Lines announced its return to this route by announcing its intention to offer three weekly frequencies between the two destinations. This service will be maintained until September 27. They will be operated by B757-200 which can accommodate 169 passengers.
The flight will take off from Newark every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8:40 p.m. and land in Bergen the next day at 11:05 a.m. The plane will then leave the Norwegian airport at 11:55 a.m. to arrive at the American airport after eight hours and thirty minutes of flight.
