Oslo Airport wins public transport record

Public transport has record ground transport market share
The share of public transport in the total ground transport to Oslo Airport is higher than at any other airport in Europe, reaching nearly 70% in 2015, Norway’s airport operator Avinor has revealed. Worldwide, there are just three airports that can boast of a higher rate of public transportation – all of them in Japan.
“Avinor is a catalyst for improved public transport and works diligently to improve the public transport share through a number of targeted measures that make it more attractive to take public transportation to and from Oslo Airport,” Oslo Airport’s managing director Øyvind Hasaas confirms. “In 2008, Avinor adopted a goal of 70% public transportation in the ground transport service to Oslo Airport by 2020. We have already achieved this goal.”
The growth in the importance of public transport has largely come about as a result of the fact that fewer people drive their cars to and from the airport. The percentage of cars fell from 27% to 22% in 2014 to 2015. Taxis, which account for 4%, are not considered public transportation. The goal now is to achieve 75% public transportation by 2030.
The most striking change in recent years is the bigger market share for Norwegian State Railway, rising from 7% in 2007 to 15% in 2014 to 21% in 2015, mainly due to more frequent trains and lower prices. The airport express train Flytoget has remained stable at 35-38%, but has lost some ground in competition with NSB in the last two years.
