Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks have today announced a new programme of flights and city breaks to Bergen in Norway for Spring 24, giving customers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience Norway’s famous Fjords.
The exciting programme of flights and city breaks has gone on sale from four UK bases today. The announcement represents the first time that Jet2 has operated to Bergen in over ten years.
As well as giving customers easy access to stunning Fjords such as Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord, the city of Bergen itself boasts a backdrop of spectacular mountains which are wrapped around a picturesque harbour lined with a variety of fashionable restaurants and bars. This historic harbour district, Bryggen, is part of UNESCO’s World Heritage List and provides visitors with one of the world's most significant examples of the history and culture of a particular medieval settlement.
The leading leisure airline and city break specialist is launching the new programme to Bergen in Norway in response to increasing demand from customers who are looking for more discovery-based experience holidays.
