Norway has both vibrant urban life and some of the most remote, unspoiled natural wonders of the world, yet all of it is surprisingly accessible. Avinor’s well-connected national network of airports provides the smartest solution to Norway’s long distances and geographic extremes.
Efficient transportation is important in Norway, helping people to reach even remote areas in a country filled with contrasts. Although most Norwegians live in urban areas, rural Norway’s many beautiful, remote villages remain alive and well. The distinctive dialects and traditions of these places create a strong cultural asset and enriches the foundation for tourism.
Extensive aviation network
Avinor’s 45 airports in Norway make up one of the most hyper-connected aviation networks in the world. Our airports are closely linked, with up to several departures hourly between the major urban centres. As a result, Norway has half of the Nordic region’s 25 busiest airports. Three of the domestic routes are among the ten busiest routes in Europe.

Key international airports
Avinor Oslo Airport is the largest airport and international hub, with over 50 per cent of air traffic within Norway and 70 per cent of all international traffic. In 2016, the airport processed 25.8 million passengers in 230,000 passenger flight movements. In the same year, there were 8,200 cargo flight movements at Oslo Airport.
Stavanger, Bergen and Trondheim have significant international traffic. There is some international traffic at several other airports, including Kristiansand, Ålesund, Molde, Bodø, Harstad/Narvik (Evenes), Tromsø, Alta and Longyearbyen.
The runways at Oslo Airport measure 2,950 and 3,600 metres. At the other major airports, the runways are between 2,400 and 2,800 metres, meaning they are usable for operating large jet aircraft, such as the B737.
