With international travel to the US finally being officially back on the table from November, Norwegians can look forward to a direct route taking them straight from Bergen to New Jersey’s Newark airport in 2022.
United Airlines will be flying the new route three times a week from May 20, 2022.
Part of a bigger expansion
According to the airline, next year marks “the largest transatlantic expansion in its history.”
In addition to Norway’s second-largest city Bergen, the airline will fly from Newark, USA, to Ponta Delgada in the Azores Islands, Palma de Mallorca, Spain, and Tenerife in the Canary Islands. United has also introduced a new route from Washington DC, USA to Amman, Jordan.
United Airlines will also be adding new routes to existing European destinations, with senior vice president of international network and alliances at the company Patrick Quayle saying:
“Given our big expectations for a rebound in travel to Europe for summer, this is the right time to leverage our leading global network in new, exciting ways.”
