KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and the Norwegian airline Widerøe announced today that they have signed a codeshare agreement, which expands the global route offering for both companies.
The two airlines now jointly offer several destinations in Norway, which means that passengers can fly with both airlines on the same booking. Thanks to the new agreement, which will come into force on 21st February, KLM and Widerøe will offer customers new opportunities and flexibility to choose from a larger number of destinations for their travels, including domestic Norwegian routes to smaller destinations.
“We are pleased to start this new cooperation with Widerøe, which strenghtens our Network in the Nordic region. In Widerøe we have found a very reliable partner, with whom we can offer passengers more transfer options and a greater number of destinations in Norway," - Frank Prillevitz, KLM Director Alliances
KLM will add a KL code on Widerøe's Norwegian domestic routes, which allows passengers from around the world to change flights in Oslo, Trondheim or Bergen to continue their journey with the same ticket and a one-stop check-in to a number of smaller airports around Norway.
“Widerøe continuously works to improve the flight offer for our customers in the outer districts of Norway. We have cooperation agreements with many companies and now we expand our cooperation with KLM. We are pleased that our customers get more travel options to choose from. KLM's large network gives access to more destinations for Widerøe's customers and better access to Norway as a whole for tourists." - Christian Skaug, Director Network & Pricing in Widerøe
As of 21 February, the cooperation will cover the following routes:
Bergen (BGO) - Tromsø (TOS), Bodø (BOO), Kristiansund (KSU), Molde (MOL), Ålesund (AES) and Florø (FRO)
Trondheim (TRD) - Tromsø (TOS), Kristiansund (KSU) and Harstad / Narvik (EVE).
Oslo (OSL) - Florø (FRO), Ørsta / Volda (HOV), Leknes (LKN), Svolvær (SVJ), Stokmarknes (SKN), Mo i Rana (MQN)
For the future, we will work together with Widerøe to improve the joint offer for our customers.
