Norwegian will begin direct flights between Manchester Airport and Trondheim for the first time from the 15th August, the Scandinavian airline has announced.
The twice-weekly flights will offer a direct connection between the Northern hub and Norway’s third largest city and surrounding Trøndelag region for the first time.
The city boasts three Michelin Star restaurants and an abundance of farm shops and local produce, with the wider Trøndelag region being named Europe’s Region of Gastronomy for 2022.
For travellers wanting to see Trondheim from a different perspective then a 2-hour urban kayak trip along the Nidelva river offers unrivalled views of the historic city, first established by the Vikings. and its renowned architecture. Hiking routes also provide the opportunity to explore the wild nature of the Trollheimen mountains that surround the city.
Said Magnus Thome Maursund, Executive Vice President Network, Pricing and Planning of Norwegian:
“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 from 15th August.”
Petra Sestak, General Manager of Explore Trøndelag commented:
“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.”
