Have been flying Wideroe a few times. The company operates lots of inland routes with small/midsize planes. Reliable and good service.

Took the Tuesday night service from Hamburg to Bergen. Just 15 pax or so. I don't know how this route will survive. But the airplane was their brand new E2. Nice seats. Windows all are pretty much misaligned with the seats which is unfortunate. Lavatory is fairly small. Service was quite relaxed with so few passengers. Departed and arrived on...

Better value than the bigger airlines when they are an alternative. Good planes, good service and usually at a cheaper price. Be satisfied with what they will offer if you want to save money because it doesn't waste extra services (drinks etc) onto the ticket price for those who do not want everything. You can always buy more water etc...

Let me first state that I was not anticipating a successful and stress free flight on Wideroe. I thought of them as a low cost low service nickle and dime airline To my surprise, and while they were low cost, their service was class all the way. Ticket printing was easy and we did get help to print our luggage...

Had expected to be flying in a propeller, but it was one of their E-190 jets with surprisingly good space between the seats. It was a very nice flight over the west norwegian archipelago, with very nice staff.

I got bumped at the last minute from my flight Aberdeen to Bergen and was diverted to Denmark where I had to stay overnight!! On top of that they lost my luggage. The reason I was bumped was because they had over sold their seats, I booked in plenty time and checked in as well in plenty time. I had...

We have visited Bergen several times in the past, always taking the train from Oslo. But the train service has deteriorated and the 4+ hours travel was getting old. We found that Wideroe offers a 55 minute flight from Kristiansand and that Kristiansand is less than 2 hours from our stay in Risor. We booked an 8am flight and found...

Never heard of Wideroe before our Norway trip. They are a good airline with friendly customer service. They were very helpful.

Stunning flight with the most beautiful views. Although our flight was about ten minutes late, that wasn´t an issue. Free seating. The staff on board was really nice. They offered a little chocolate, apart from that nothing, but it´s a short flight anyway. The plane was almost empty both ways. The airport in Leknes is tiny and you never have...

I bought the Explore Norway Ticket for 470 Euros, which gave me two weeks unlimited flights between Tromsoø and the far south of the country. I have to say it was unbelievably good value, as I flew: Bergen - Stavanger Stavanger - Bergen Bergen - Sogndal Ålesund - Kristiansund Kristiansund - Bodø Bodø - Tromsø Tromsø - Bodø Bodø -...
