Gates closed at Oslo Airport for expansion work

New pier with 21 aprons and baggage system due in 2017

Ahead of its completion in 2017, an expansion project at Oslo Airport is continuing as five gates in the terminal have been closed, domestic flights rerouted, and new taxiways and remote aprons will be open for aircraft. In 2017, a new pier with 21 aprons and a new baggage system will open at the airport.
For passengers, the construction work means an increase in the use of buses over the next four years, especially for international flights. However, the airport assured in a statement that “travel will otherwise be as before”.
“This is the biggest milestone thus far in the expansion project,” said Nic Nilsen, managing director of Oslo Airport, “and we’ve actually now completed 40% of the construction work.”
The five gates that have closed to make room for the construction work are 28, 30, 32, 34 and 36. Passengers on international flights will experience more bussing to these remote aprons. In June, three new security lanes will open including a separate “family security lane” to reduce queuing, which is currently under trial.
