Wideroe is the largest regional airline in Scandinavia, with a network including some 40 destinations within Norway and seven abroad in Sweden, Denmark, Germany and the UK. Its fleet is based on all the four series  (-100, -200-200 and -Q400) of the popular Dash 8 turboprop aircraft, but in 2018 the carrier entered the jet age for the first time in its 86 year-long history by acquiring three Embraer ERJ 190-E2, the newest generation of the Brazilian regional jet family. Frequent Flyer program Eurobonus is the same as Scandinavian Airlines, so that passengers can earn or spend miles with both airlines (Photo Wikimedia Commons / Valentin Hintikka)
