Getting around the airport


Oslo's Gardermoen Airport is the main airport for the city (there are also the low-cost Rygge and Torp airports). It lies around 50km north-east of the city centre.

There is one long terminal building, split into two piers in the east (domestic flights) and west (international flights). A third, north pier, expected to open in 2017. You'll find Arrivals on Level 0 and Departures on Level 1, and (somewhat expensive) restaurants and shops on both levels.

Travellers have reported that the airport can be slow to transit through, due to slow baggage handling and the inconvenience of having to clear customs when changing flights. It can appear that is currently too small to handle increasing passenger numbers.

Transit to domestic airports

Big hassle, very time consuming

Be aware that you must clear customs in OSL when transiting from an inteternational flight to other domestic Norwegian airports. You need to get your luggage, haul it upstairs and go through all necessary procedures (also security) as if starting your travel in Oslo as there is no service for a rapid re-check of your baggage after customs.
Travellers have also repeatedly noted that baggage handling at OSL is slow.

Getting into Oslo

Train is best

The train may be more expensive than the bus but it's high speed and will shorten your journey into the city. 


The Flytoget Airport Express Train runs every 10 minutes to Oslo S station (Oslo Central Station) from 05:35-12:35, and takes 20 minutes. If you don’t want to queue to buy a ticket, you can just swipe your credit/debit card at the gates to get through. 

(To save money, you can also take the NSB regional train from NOK 93. Trains leave every 30 minutes and the journey takes about 25 minutes.)

Cost: NOK 190 one-way; children under 16 are free, special prices for youths and students apply
Location: Gardermoen Station, below the terminal
Buying tickets: Swipe your card at the gates


Several buses are available to reach the Oslo city center and other cities around.


Taxi fares from the airport vary a lot, depending on the time of day and taxi company. And remember, the airport is 50km out of the city so a taxi ride is bound to be pricy. Always agree a fare beforehand, or go to the Taxi Information Desk in the terminal to find out more about fares.

We found 0-Taxi (from NOK 598) to be the cheapest taxi company.  

Cost: Around NOK 610 from Mon-Fri 06:00-17:00, NOK 720 after 17:00
