A view of the future at Oslo Airport

New pier to boost capacity to 30mn passengers a year
“True Scandic design” is promised for the new North Pier at Oslo Airport, comprising 11 aircraft stands and due to open on April 27, 2017.
The “state-of-the-art extension” and pier will mean that Norway’s main gateway will be able to handle up to 30 million passengers a year, an increase of more than 5 million, operator Avinor claims.
“With rapidly growing traffic in boomtown Oslo, and projected strong long-growth trends, the city is emerging as the international hub for Norway and around Scandinavia,” says Jasper Spruit, Oslo Airport’s vice president for traffic development.
The new pier will be part of a new-look Oslo Airport that officially opens next April following six years of construction. This will also include an extended central terminal building and a fully integrated station hall for the Airport Express Train and Norwegian State Railways (NSB).
“Encompassing a true Scandinavian experience, the design of the terminal building will enhance the travellers feeling of arriving to a Nordic capital,” Avinor says in a press release.
Nine of the new North Pier’s 11 aircraft stands will be flexible gates, enhancing the capacity of each by 25%. The East Pier, meanwhile, will be expanded to facilitate long-haul operators and their passengers.
