Business Support


We are in constant exchange with our partners in Norway within tourism and other industries. Together, we actively work on developing Norway as a destination and therefore help with filling seats and making routes profitable in the long-term. This also gives us many insights into profitable route options.

Take advantage of our excellent network!

When it comes to market development, we at Avinor see ourselves as a driving force: we help with product development, hold workshops and bring in new ideas. By being actively involved in these activities, not only do we have an excellent understanding of the various opportunities for route development, we also help shape the tourism sector as a bridge between the airlines and the Norwegian market.

Furthermore, our partnerships allow us to closely monitor relevant developments affecting route development. For example, when a Norwegian company builds a factory abroad, this can instantly generate demand for a route between the two countries. Or we know that a new tourism product will lead to an increase in passenger numbers in certain markets. Don't hesitate to get in touch to learn more about how you can profit from such developments.

At Avinor, we are developing routes which we believe in. We know our markets inside out because we are actively developing them, allowing a detailed analysis of their potential now and in the coming years. We believe that to create and maintain profitable and sustainable routes, everyone must work together – we as route developers, our airline partners and our strong national as well as regional partners in Norway.
