2014’s service improvements start with Air France’s non-stop flights between western Norway oil city Stavanger and French capital Paris.

There is also the option for using KLM from Sola, giving what the carrier says is up to seven departures a day down to Paris and Amsterdam.

Tickets, which can be booked from today, Monday, cost from NOK 459 one-way, according to them.

Italian-French charm

Tri-Scandinavian airline SAS has now unveiled it summer routes, with nine new destinations from Norway.

The carrier will be flying to three destinations in Italy from Oslo: Olbia (between 4 July and 8 August), Venice (from 2 July to 6 August), and Pisa (between 28 June-9 August).

They will also serve Larnaca on the island of Cyprus from 1 July to 12 August, and southern France’s Biarritz between 1 July and 12 August.

Sun and sea

Three other Norwegian cities – Stavanger, Bergen, and Kristiansand – also get new summer services. Passengers from both western Norway airports will be able to fly to Alanya in Turkey between 2 July and 6 August, whilst those bound for Billund in Denmark can travel from Bergen only between 28 June and 16 August.

SAS will operate a service from Kristiansand Kjevik Airport to the Croatian city of Split from 3 July to 7 August.

"Our improved competitiveness and increased productivity gives us the opportunity to open many new routes to serve our customers," says Joakim Landholm, Executive Vice President Commercial in a statement.

European choice

The airline also offers new European summer routes for passengers departing from Stockholm to nine destinations, such as Naples, Chania on Crete, Bristol, and Norway’s Bodø.

Routes from Gothenburg include Berlin, Pula (Croatia), and Palma de Mallorca. These services run from 30 June-15 August, 01 July-05 August, and 02 July-13 August, respectively.

Denmark passengers can fly from Copenhagen to Pisa, Naples, Faro, Chania, Bastia (France) and Montpellier.
