The four-times-a-week service operates on a 78-seater Dash-8 Q400 aircraft, with the first flights arriving and fully booked.

Kristiansand is a family destination and a gateway to coastal towns, inland woods, elk safaris and rivers for white water rafting and salmon fishing.

Widerøe announced the route after strong demand among Norwegian travellers wanting to reach London, and to serve growing numbers of British tourists travelling to southern Norway.

Mark Souter, aviation manager at Stansted Airport said: “We’re delighted to welcome Widerøe to the airport, adding yet another destination to our rapidly growing network providing passengers with even more options when travelling from London Stansted. This makes a beautiful region of Norway more accessible to British travellers as well as providing those arriving from Norway convenient and easy access to London and the East of England.”
