Nordic airline Widerøe has added its cargo capacity to online booking portal WebCargo.

The airline is the largest regional carrier operating in the Nordic countries and has a fleet of more than 40 Bombardier Dash 8 aircraft and three Embraer E190-E2 aircraft.

It serves more than 40 domestic and international destinations with its turboprop aircraft.

Widerøe said that WebCargo’s CO2 emissions calculator was important an important factor in its decision as it has a focus on emissions reduction. 

“We are very happy to finally be able to offer our capacity on the WebCargo-platform. The CO2-emissions calculation done by the platform is something that we in Widerøe welcomes, it enables the customers not only to take an active choice when it comes down to the price, but also the impact on the environment,” said Thomas Lone, cargo manager at Widerøe.

WebCargo said that the calculator helps its freight forwarder users make an informed decision on which flight to select based on emissions.

Meanwhile, booking portals in general help improve aircraft utilisation which can help improve environmental performance.
