A national distribution and logistics hub

Oslo Airport (OSL) is a national distribution and logistics hub. Good connections by road and rail to Norway and Sweden and more than 100 direct air routes underlines this fact.

A number of airlines, freight companies and handling agents operate at OSL. In 2012 they processed 21.2 million passengers, 224 000 aircraft movements and 170 000 tonnes of freight and mail. The airport has two independent runways which guarantee good capacity for long term growth. The runways allow aircrafts to operate with maximum payload on long haul routes. The airport is open 24 hours.
