British Airways has a long-running codeshare with Loganair, which for the past two years has operated as an independent airline after previously being a Flybe and BA franchisee.

This has been largely limited to UK domestic flights from Scottish airports to the Highlands and Islands.

However, this has now been extended to two international routes from Edinburgh to Bergen and Stavanger in Norway. These two routes were suspended by BA from London Heathrow in October 2017.

Loganair flies to Bergen three times weekly on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. It flies to Stavanger four times weekly on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

Both routes are operated with Embraer E135 aircraft with 37 seats in a single cabin configuration.

British Airways Suspends London – Bergen & Stavanger

British Airways is to suspend flights from London Heathrow to Bergen and Stavanger from 28 October 2017.

British Airways is to suspend flights from London Heathrow to Bergen Flesland airport and Stavanger Sola airport from Saturday 28 October 2017. 

These routes were inherited by BA when its parent company International Airlines Group acquired bmi in 2012.  The reason for the suspension is poor commercial performance.

The last flights will operate on Saturday 28 October 2017.

Passengers who are currently booked to fly from London Heathrow from Sunday 29 October 2017 have the option of:

  • A full refund
  • Rebook on to an alternative flight to/from Bergen and Stavengar from Friday 1 September 2017 to Saturday 28 October 2017 
  • Rebooking on to an alternative BA operated flight between London Heathrow and Oslo up to 14 days before/after your original travel date.  However, any consequential costs such as ground transportation must be met at your own expense

BA has not yet announced any rebooking arrangements with rival airlines.  It normally takes time for these to be agreed and further details may be announced over the next few days.

For passengers looking at alternative routes from late October, other direct options include Norwegian from London Gatwick to Bergen and Stavanger and SAS from London Heathrow to Stavanger.

Affected passengers should contact BA or your travel agent.
