The underserved cargo market

Although Norway is already the biggest cargo market in the Nordics, there is significant room for growth.

The competition to become Scandinavia’s new hub is undoubtedly fierce, and it’s the seafood in the belly and full freighter opportunities that sets Norway apart from the competition.

Only 39% of Norway’s air cargo activity was leaving Norway directly by air in 2017. Outbound air cargo from Norway remains an underserved market. The lack of direct belly and freighter capacity remains a challenge for Norwegian exporters, with export volumes expected to double by 2025 – by five times greater than that, in the following 30 years.

Customised market development support

Avinor provides customised cargo business development assistance for dedicated cargo operators, and passenger routes. With the assistance of our partners, we can guarantee a full belly load of cargo from Avinor Oslo Airport, for scheduled intercontinental routes to the largest hubs in Asia, Africa and North America.

Cargo facilities

The airport is undergoing a significant expansion of its cargo facilities, with two new areas for cargo and new stands for freighters. The aim is to attract more inbound import to Norway and the Nordic market.  Avinor is partnering with some of the world’s largest seafood exporters to build a new, world-leading, fully automated seafood air cargo facility
