Airports in Oslo

Oslo Airport (OSL)

Overview

Oslo Airport is a short 20-minute train ride from central Oslo, making it a great airport to use when travelling to Norway. The airport is well connected to cities across Europe and handles over 18 million passengers annually.

Oslo Airport is easy to navigate around as it has just one terminal with two tiers attached. There is a range of restaurants and shopping options at the airport, but some of them can be quite pricey for those travelling on a budget. Spending a few extra hours at the airport is easy as there are plenty of things to do. Of particular interest is the public art on display, such as the Ad Astra piece by Carin Wessel, which uses over 100,000 feet (30,000 metres) of thread to give the impression of clouds and webs.

Location

The airport is situated 29 miles (47km) northeast of Oslo.

Getting to the city

An Airport Express train and a variety of taxis go to the city centre. An airport bus travels between the Oslo Bus Terminal downtown and the airport, with night services connecting to every arrival.

Time

Local time is GMT +1 (GMT +2 between the last Sunday in March and the Saturday before the last Sunday in October).
