The carrier will be the only one to offer flights between Bergen and Heathrow, and will code-share with SAS on the Stavanger-Heathrow route.

Passengers flying between Heathrow and Stavanger will be able to depart from London in the morning, returning mid-afternoon, whilst the London-Bergen route will be flown mid-afternoon and early evening.

“To meet the clear demand for further growth, we are offering these new direct services from Stavanger and from Bergen to Heathrow, our UK hub, building on our network strategy to focus on international routes and service key centres for the oil and energy sector,” the airline announces in a press release.

The new service will be ideal both for business and leisure travellers, according to the carrier. Both classes onboard its Airbus A319 aircraft will offer a full food and drinks service.

Whilst Economy class passengers will be allowed 20kg of checked baggage, the seating in Business will be 2:2, with complimentary lounge access at Heathrow Terminal 1.

The carrier also offers routes between Heathrow and Marrakech, Casablanca, Tripoli, and Beirut, as well as services from Heathrow and Manchester to Basle with partner airline SWISS.

BMI is a member of the Star Alliance global airline network, and Norway-UK prices are expected to start at approximately 1,000 kroner.

“London Heathrow is the home of BMI and as the second largest airline at Heathrow we will continue to offer our customers attractive business and leisure destinations,” says CEO Wolfgang Prock-Schauer.
