Two new non-stop flights from Haugesund Airport

(Source: Aftenposten, April 24th 2009) Scots and Spaniards, look out! This summer Ryanair will launch two new non-stop flights from Haugesund Airport to Edinburgh and Alicante. From Haugesund you may explore the splendor of the Norwegian fjords to the north and Stavanger, Norway’s oil capital to the south.

Ryanair has Torp airport, Sandefjord, as its main base for traffic to and from Norway. The airline is also currently operating flights from Haugesund Airport, on the Western coast, to two destinations, Bremen and London Stanstead.

From mid July through October travelers from Spain and Scotland can fly non-stop from Alicante and Edinburg on two new non-stop flights to Haugesund. Flights will go twice a week, Tuesdays and Saturdays and depart from:
  • Alicante, 6.00 AM arriving Haugesund 9.45 AM
  • Haugesund, 10.10 AM, arriving Alicante 1.45 PM
  • Edinburg, 6.20 GMT, arriving Haugesund 8.55 AM CET
  • Haugesund, 9.20 CET, arriving Edinburg 9.55 GMT
Through this expansion, the airline expect the number of passengers to increase from 90 000 in 2008 to 100 000 in 2009. If the public responds well to the new flights, the airline may continue the flights into the winter months, according to Ryanair’s Sales and Marketing Director Ashley Casey.
