Today, Widerøe undertook a service with the brand-new Embraer 190-E2 aircraft, departing from Bergen and landing in Tromso. It was the first time that the jet took flight with a scheduled passenger service after Widerøe had the aircraft certified earlier this year in February.
President and CEO of Widerøe, Stein Nilsen, commented 'We'll always have the distinction of being the first airline to fly the E2. We see a bright future with our new E2 jets." The airline is going to receive two additional E190-E2 jets this year and hold the rights to purchase a further 12.
12th April 2018
Scandinavia’s largest regional airline, Wideroe have plans to increase its order for E2 jets after it received the first of three new-generation aircraft from Brazil’s Embraer to become its inaugural operator. It has options to buy another 12. Wideroe could also be showing interest in the smaller E175-E2, due to enter service in 2021 and currently prevented by union scope clauses from operating in the United States. Wideroe is the oldest airline in Norway and has discarded any reports of competition with Norweigan, saying there was no direct competition with Wideroe which serves mainly small domestic airports. Embraer expects a market for 6,400 jets in the 70-130 seat segment over the next 20 years.

KLM will add a KL code on Widerøe’s Norwegian domestic routes, which allows passengers from around the world to change flights in Oslo, Trondheim or Bergen to continue their journey with the same ticket and a one-stop check-in to a number of smaller airports around Norway.
Christian Skaug, Director Network & Pricing in Widerøe, said:
“Widerøe continuously works to improve the flight offer for our customers in the outer districts of Norway. We have cooperation agreements with many companies and now we expand our cooperation with KLM. We are pleased that our customers get more travel options to choose from. KLM’s large network gives access to more destinations for Widerøe’s customers and better access to Norway as a whole for tourists.”
