Widerøe was founded in 1934 by 5 people and was located at Ingierstrand, outside Oslo. The company originally operated as a transport for schools, aerial photos and as well as an air ambulance and taxi. In the 1950’s, the airline’s activity increased significantly, with additional routes added to new airports being built in the Scandinavian regions. The airline was then involved in World War II to help with sea air ambulances as there was no ban on civil aviation. They also took part in aerial advertising, by dropping leaflets mid-flight which increased revenue in mountain resorts. The fleet were built between 1990 and 2010 and is made up of 41 Bombardier Dash-8 turbo-prop aircraft, 7 Dash-8 300, 3-Dash-8-Q200, 11 Dash-8 q400 and 20 Dash-8 100. The flight capacities range from 39 – 78 seats. Widerøe is committed to adhere to the International Air Transport Association (IATA)’s goal of zero emissions by 2050. The goal is an emissions-neutral aviation as an integral part of a future sustainable of society and environment. The main bases for Widerøe is Sandefjord Airport, Torp, Bodø Airport, Tromsø Airport, Bergen Airport, Flesland and Oslo Airport, Gardermoen. Widerøe's operations are focused on point-to-point transit, although the airline essentially feeds medium-haul and international airlines. Their main domestic airport is Sandefjord Airport.

Wideroe consider increasing Embraer jet order
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.
