Oslo Airport’s Select Service Partner (SSP) has opened a new Norgesglasset bar in the domestic section of the North Pier at Oslo Airport, which celebrates traditional Norgesglass.
The new domestic arrivals hall has opened at Oslo airport; the first large part of the facility to open before the new Oslo Airport officially opens on 27 April 2017.
As part of the new arrivals terminal, Oslo has opened a new Duty Free shopping area which, at 4,000 square metres, is twice as large as the previous arrivals shop.
Avinor, which manages 46 airports in Norway, has announced that it will scale up efforts to better connect Oslo and Norway with the Asian continent.
Oslo Airport is an important communications hub in Norway with approximately 24 million travellers and more than 235,000 aircraft movements per year. Avinor has appointed Mr. Ulv Elbirk in a consultant role as the new Director Asia Route Development to help grow those numbers, benefitting from Asian tourism and business demand.
Airport association ACI EUROPE has announced the winners of its Best Airport awards, with Avinor’s Oslo Airport winning the Eco-Innovation Award from the independent Advisory Board of the carbon management program, Airport Carbon Accreditation.
“The judges were particularly impressed by the pioneering and innovative Oslo Airport’s project of setting up a regular supply of bio jetfuel to all the customer airlines, since January 2016, making it the first airport in the world to offer this service through the normal supply mechanism,” ACI EUROPE explains.
With one year to go for the grand opening of a major project to grow Oslo Airport, the airport’s management company, Avinor, reports that the project is running according to plan.
By the time the doors open on 27 April 2017, Norway’s main airport will be almost twice as large with capacity to serve up to 30 million passengers.
Norway’s airport management company Avinor and Oslo Airport have upped their tech-game with a new website and simplified Wi-Fi Connectivity for passengers.
