Airports in Bergen

Bergen Flesland Airport (BGO)

Overview

Bergen Airport (BGO) is for some travellers the preferred entry-point into Norway, a land of outstanding natural beauty characterised by fjords, snow, glaciers and awe-inspiring landscapes. The airport, also referred to as the Flesland Air Station, is situated 7.5 miles (about 12km) from Bergen on the coast of Norway. Bergen Airport is the second-biggest airport in Norway, after Oslo International (which is much busier). Bergen Air Transport, Norwegian Air Shuttle and Wideroe all use Bergen Airport as a hub, providing good links to other European destinations. The city of Bergen itself is a picturesque place filled with quaint wooden houses and a beautiful harbour - you can, in fact, take a boat directly from the airport into the city. This is a highly recommended activity, and the perfect introduction to the significant beauty of the city and its natural surrounds.

Location

The airport is situated 12 miles (19km) southwest of Bergen.

Getting to the city

An airport bus services the city centre. Two children under 16 may accompany an adult for free. There are also boats to a number of locations from Flesland Quay.

Time
