Airports in Norway

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.
