- Gardermoen and Sandefjord Airports. Oslo Airport
is the main international airport in the country of
Norway. Opened in 1998 it is a state of the art building
and you'll find it spacious and gleaming and of course
it is a very well sign-posted building which makes
all the services easy for visitors to find. The location
of the Oslo Airport is about 50 kms to the north of
the city. Getting from the airport to Oslo centre
is simple with an Express Train and Bus service ready
to speed you in.

is over twenty million a year and the airport, so
recently built, has the capacity for more passengers
and so you passage through the airport will be smooth.
