It looks like the same photo used on the Bergen page of the destination guide in Loganair’s website.

Loganair currently don't fly to Oslo Gardermoen or Sandefjord (70miles away though marketed by Ryanair as "Oslo Sandefjord")

They do serve Bergen currently from Edinburgh, Inverness & Manchester and seasonally from Sumburgh & Kirkwall.

Interesting that they're launching two destinations but only one has been given the Newcastle Airport striptease act. Maybe the next one isn't quite as bonny!

Wish I understood that.
Must be a Geordie thing. Being long time married to one, I thought I knew all their strange customs. Obviously missed one. 😁

We will find out soon enough the 2nd destination. Can only surmise that you wouldn’t be excited or surprised by it. Makes me think it might be somewhere like LDY or SEN.

I would say Bergen’s a definite, but the second eludes me. I know that originally Oslo was planned from NCL along with Bergen. However, Loganair pulling the ABZ-OSL route due to poor passenger numbers and competition with SAS makes me think otherwise. Nevertheless, I reckon Oslo’s the favourite.

Southend could be a serious contender. Can’t see Derry / Londonderry having much point. Not unless they can get a PSO out of it. Dublin would be more logical, with Ryanair cutting theirs in the winter. Cardiff, Exeter or Newquay would be 100/1 shots.

So who predicted Guernsey? Interesting comment from LOG in the press release on the NIA website -
"We’re working on further developments of our services at Newcastle as well and hope to share further exciting news soon"

I was wrong about the second destination not being very bonny, then! Great news about Guernsey. Will have to see how their fares compare to Flybe's via Southampton or Exeter, but nice to have a direct service to one of my favourite places in the British Isles.

They seem to have had mixed fortunes when they've deliberately gone head-to-head with flybe / Eastern. They won on the Northern Isles routes from Edinburgh etc, but they got chased off Teesside-Aberdeen. Belfast City might be a possibility. (Flybe don't do Jersey from Newcastle now btw)

About £74.99 one way judging by their website for most Saturdays.

The Teesside-Aberdeen was part of the chess game also involving the Shetland routes, an obvious attempt to force Eastern off those. Once they withdrew then the Teesside route came off - however I wouldn’t rule it out returning now they’re going head to head on other routes. There is a huge offshore market in the North East but they’re more price sensitive than before!

Good to read that Loganair are looking to further develop their network from Newcastle, "with further exciting news soon".
