“Nice company, good if you want to visit the various small towns in Norway”
Review of Wideroe


Reviewed 20 February 2018

I have travelled with SAS and Widerøe several times the last month (I counted I have had 30 safety demonstrations, and this is written Mid-February). Both companies are nice to travel with. Widerøe has their smaller planes, and usually, there is a free seat next to you, although not always. SAS has been filled to the brim almost every single time, so regarding space and well-being as a passenger, I prefer Widerøe.

The service in SAS is somewhat better, as they give you free coffee or tea, compared to Widerøe's mini chocolate. Widerøe have snacks for sale, SAS has a couple of food items, but are almost as limited as Widerøe, despite they have 100 more passengers in the airplane.

A final difference, at SAS you can pre-pay for your preferred seat, or you're offered a random one – unless you manage to choose your favourite seat out of those being available 22 hours before departure. Widerøe has free seating, so if you're early in the queue, you can take any seat, whatever you prefer, although the two seats facing backwards are only to be used if all other seats are occupied. Else, if there is very few passengers, they prefer that you don't sit in the very front of the airplane, it seems.

I traveled with Widerøe a saturday morning in January, and the weather was clear and there was no wind. The aircraft pilot desided to fly very low along the coastline from Brønnøysund to Bodø. IT was amazing. We was lover than the brearhtaking mountains and so close to the sea, we could see the shallows. Since it was winter, the sun was very low, though it was midday. All the way the pilot was guiding us, telling the names of those beatiful places We past on our trip. It was like an unexpected safari, and I felt so lucky to have this experience. Norway, my homeland is so breathtaking, beond imaginazion. You should see Norway. My town, Bergen is pretty, but the north is spectacular. And Widerøe gives you unbelieveble crediit for your money!

they lost my luggage (being a stop over they should transfer the luggage to the connected fly), the customer center hasb been crabby and unhelpfull. Still waiting for the refund after weeks. I guess manageing efficiently such small airports should not be so complicated, but for them it is.

Nice, reliable and efficient Airline. The shorttrack Aircrafts ensure to access the smallest places in Norway. This Airline manage to reach your final airport is as close as possible to your destination wich you with other, bigger aircraft can´t reach.
early booking ensure moderat prices
