The route operates twice a week all year round, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

“Scandinavia and Norway, in particular, is one of the most important destinations for passengers traveling from Lithuanian airports. There is a steady growth in demand between Lithuania and Scandinavia and for Norwegians to experience the Lithuanian coastline and its' heritage. We are pleased to be able to offer Bergen as a new destination from Palanga Airport,” says Aurimas Stikliunas, Head of the Aviation Services Division of Lithuanian Airports.

As the gateway to the Fjords of Norway, a UNESCO World Heritage City and a European City of Culture, the Bergen region combines nature, culture and urban life all in one place. Visitors can enjoy a trip to the fjords and the spectacular landscape views, before enjoying the history and culture of Bergen.

“We see an increasing demand for flights between Scandinavia and Eastern Europe from both Scandinavians and Eastern Europeans,” said Magnus Thome Maursund, SVP commercial Short Haul at Norwegian.

Norwegian also operates flights from Palanga to Oslo and from Vilnius to Oslo and Stockholm.
