Jasper Spruit, VP Traffic Development at Avinor, commented: “We are happy that Iberia are strengthening their operations to and from Norway. With added frequencies and full-year operations, Oslo and Madrid become even closer. The new schedule also improves the connectivity to Iberia’s network in Spain and to Latin America. Bergen is fast becoming Norway´s main tourist destination, and this new route is another example of the attractiveness of the gateway to the Norwegian fjords and scenic nature”.

Celia Muñoz, Iberia’s director of Sales in EMEA, Asia and the United States, commented: “The expansion of our Oslo operations and the launch of the Bergen-Madrid route make us an alternative for all those travellers from Norway who wish to fly to Spain and especially to Latin America. At the same time, we are making it easier and faster for many people to travel to Norway for business or pleasure.”

Travellers to/from Oslo and Bergen will find the best connections in Madrid to other cities in Spain, such as Almeria, Granada, Jerez de la Frontera, Pamplona, Valencia, and Vigo; and also to Latin American cities, such asBuenos Aires, Montevideo, Lima, Santiago de Chile, São Paulo, and Mexico City. Customers can combine Iberia and British Airways flights on the same ticket for travel to and from Norway.
