11 February 2022 – The air company Norwegian has announced new direct flights between Manchester and Trondheim granting opportunities for more people to discover Trondheim-Trøndelag, awarded European Region of Gastronomy 2022 by IGCAT.
The flights will operate twice a week starting from 15 August 2022 and will strengthen the company’s connections to the region, complementing Norwegian’s increase in flights between London Gatwick and Trondheim to five a week from 27 March (Travel Weekly).
“We are very pleased to announce this additional route between Manchester and Trondheim. UK visitors from Manchester will now have easy direct access to this beautiful Nordic region and we look forward to welcoming customers on board,” said Magnus Thome Maursund, executive vice president network, pricing and planning at Norwegian (Business Traveller).
“We are looking forward to welcoming visitors from Manchester, especially in such an important year for the region. Often called Norway’s food capital and Home of Nordic Flavours, the vibrant city of Trondheim is rightly emerging as one of the most interesting culinary destinations in Northern Europe. However, those visiting the region will discover it has so much more to offer, whether that be cultural tours, activities such as hiking, cycling and skiing or opportunities to simply relax and enjoy Norway’s great outdoors” added Petra Sestak, general manager of Explore Trøndelag (Business Traveller).
