Widerøes Flyveselskap AS, trading as Widerøe, is a Norwegian airline and is the largest regional airline operating in the Nordic countries.
The airline was established in 1934 by Viggo Widerøe, a notable Norwegian aviator. In 2002 SAS Group completed its purchase of Wideroe who then took over SAS Commuter’s operations in northern Norway. In 2010, Widerøe took over regional SAS services in western Norway. By 2016, SAS had ended its ownership of Widerøe, albeit remaining as a close regional partner of SAS. In Jul 2023 Norwegian announced a deal to acquire Widerøe for 1.125 billion kroner ($104 million), subject to regulatory approval.
With a staff of 2,500 and a turnover of NOK 3.5 billion, the company has over 400 daily departures to 40 domestic and 10 international destinations. In the most recent year, Wideroe carried over 2.8 million passengers.
Widerøe Network & Fleet
The Wideroe fleet consists of 43 aircraft including 10 Q400’s seating 78 passengers, 4 Q300’s seating 50 passengers and 26 Q200’s seating 39 passengers.
In 2018 Widerøe was the first airline in the world to put the Embraer E190-E2 into commercial operations and currently has three of these aircraft in its fleet, each seating 110 passengers.
Public service obligation (PSO) services to regional airports make up slightly less than half of Widerøe’s operations. The remaining services are to primary airports within Norway and some international services from Oslo, Sandefjord, Kristiansand, Stavanger, Bergen and Trondheim.
