Tourism Ireland has welcomed the announcement by Norwegian airline Widerøe of a new flight from Bergen to Dublin.

Statement By Chief Executive Of Tourism Ireland

Niall Gibbons, chief executive of Tourism Ireland, said, “Today’s announcement by Widerøe is good news for Irish tourism in 2023, as we continue to restore growth in inbound tourism. As an island destination, we know there’s a proven direct correlation between access and growth in visitor numbers, so this new flight will certainly help boost visitor numbers from Norway. We’re looking forward to working closely with Widerøe, Dublin Airport, and other tourism interests to maximise the promotion of this new service.

“The Nordic region is an important market for tourism to the island of Ireland. In 2019, we welcomed 256,000 Nordic visitors, whose visits delivered €116 million for the economy.”
