Ny ruteflyvning mellem Bergen og Vágar annonceres af Norges “Widerø”

Det norske flyselskab “Widerø” indleder planlagte passagerflyvninger fra den 3. september mellem Bergen i Norge og Vágar på Færøerne.

Ifølge en meddelelse fra flyselskabet den 29. juni flyver det regionale flyselskab mellem de to destinationer to gange om ugen, mandage og fredage, med mulighed for efterfølgende at tilføje flere fly til den nye rute. “Der er ingen tvivl om, at dette vil have en positiv effekt på trafikken i Vágar Lufthavn og den færøske turistindustri.

Anslået gennemsnitlig flyvetid for ruten Bergen-Vágar er cirka en time og 45 minutter, får vi at vide. Widerø vil bruge nye Bombardier Q400 Dash 8-fly til ruten Bergen-Vágar samt transportørens nye rutefly til Alicante, Spanien, ligeledes ud af Bergen, i et træk, der er en del af at flytte hovedfokus i flyselskabets forretning væk fra Norges nord til landets vestlige region i lyset af faldende passagertal.

Med Q400’s plads til op til 78 passagerer oplyste flyselskabet, at det stadig kan tage andre større modeller i brug på de nyligt annoncerede ruter, hvis der skulle være efterspørgsel efter flere sæder. Ved siden af ​​flyselskabsoperationer med flyvninger til 49 destinationer i Norge og andre steder i Europa tilbyder Widerø ground services i 42 norske lufthavne.

Norwegian airline Widerø is set to launch scheduled passenger flights, as of September 3rd, between Bergen in Norway and Vágar in the Faroe Islands.

According to an announcement released by the airline on June 29th, the regional carrier will be flying between the two destinations twice a week, Mondays and Fridays, with the option of subsequently adding more flights to the new route.

There is no doubt that this will have a positive effect on the traffic at Vágar Airport and the Faroese tourism industry,” Regin I. Jakobsen, CEO of Vágar Airport, noted in response to the news. We are very excited about this new project,” he added.

Estimated average flight time for the Bergen-Vágar route is approximately one hour and 45 minutes, we’re told.

Widerø will be using new Bombardier Q400 Dash 8 airplanes for the Bergen-Vágar route as well as for the carrier’s new scheduled flights to Alicante, Spain, likewise out of Bergen, in a move that is part of shifting the main focus of the airline’s business away from Norway’s North to the country’s West region in the face of falling passenger numbers. 

With the Q400’s room for up to 78 passengers, the airline stated that it can still put other larger models to use on the newly announced routes, should there be demand for more seats.

Alongside airline operations with flights to 49 destinations in Norway and elsewhere in Europe – Widerø offers ground services at 42 Norwegian airports.

Faroe Islands’ longest sea cable for aquaculture installed

Earlier this month, electrical engineering firm JT Electric completed the latest installation of their 5.6-kilometer sea cable to a Bakkafrost fish farming site in the Faroe Islands. The cable provides power from Bakkafrost’s hatchery at Strond near Klaksvík to the remote fish farm off Skálatoftir, making it the longest cable of its kind in the Faroe Islands.

The installation is part of a Bakkafrost-driven transition to provide more sustainable power consumption. The majority of the Bakkafrost feeding barges in the Faroe Islands are powered by sea cables from land, organized and installed by JT Electric throughout the islands. As for the remaining barges still fueled by diesel, these are in the process of being shifted to electric power by cable.

“Our goal is to reduce our CO2 emissions by 50 percent by 2030,” said Jón Purkhús, farming manager for Bakkafrost North. “By using sea cables to supply our feeding barges with electricity from land we are reducing oil usage and thereby significantly reducing emissions from our fish farms.”

Designed by JT Electric and their cable partner, the unique 5.6 km sea cable is fitted with fiber inside. Installing the fiber connection along with the power supply has ensured that the site has a fast and safe link to the equipment onboard the feeding barge.

“All operations are undertaken remotely from the land based feeding central, therefore this smooth connection is essential,” JT Electic’s operational manager Leivur Hansen said. “This has been an exciting project for us,” he added. “The long distance made it necessary to use high-voltage electricity to effectively deliver power via the sea cable to the feeding barge. This challenge was solved in close collaboration with Faroese utility SEV.”
