Wideroe´s Flyveselskap is from Norway and connects small airfields in Northern Norway to the major international gateways. They operate mainly Dash8-100/300.
They´re named after their founder.
I´m from Germany.

To Lx-lgu.

Yes and yes. SRP=Stord.

And Golden Air will as far as I know still operate there.
( You see I'm from stord )

Now, I just have to ask, HOW ON EARTH DID YOU KNOW THAT IF YOU LIVE IN AFRICA????

Yes, Wideroe is Norwegian. I picked that up from reading my aviation books- I have never been to Europe, far less seen one of their planes (yet).

Hop to it, fly for life!

Widerøe operates to 34 different Norwegian airports. In addition to this they have flights to Aberdeen, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin...

They are a SAS-partner.

Busy Bee of Norway. I grew up in Germany. Now live in the US but what has this to do with thay anyways.
Many of us study the JP and take it with to the airport
and even have logbook for spotted a/c! I personally did
everything, but got most of my kicks taking pics of them
in HAM , my former home airport and at FRA at times.

Yes Widerøe - Norwegian - They were one of the first to buy DASH-7s which got the aviation ball rolling for Bombardier.. who's located in my hometown, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Well, now everybody here posted that they are Norwegian, so it's nothing new... just wanted to add that I used to see them nearly every day in Berlin Tempelhof on their flight to Oslo... They operated around lunchtime, so it was a hobby of my colleagues and me to count the few passengers who disembarked in Berlin... but I assume this changed as they are now SAS partners...
