Oslo to passengers: “Switch off your auto pilot”

More than 100,000 people are expected on Friday
This summer will bring a record number of passengers to Oslo Airport, with Friday June 16 the peak travel day for the whole season when more than 100,000 people are expected to pass through during the day.
What the airport is stressing to passengers, however, is to “switch off your auto pilot – look for the signs”. The recent opening of the new-look airport means that the new passenger areas are in full use.
Passengers with SAS and Norwegian will be able to use “dedicated areas” in the Departure Hall, and the airport now has 11 extra lanes in security control. But most important are the new signs.
“Our terminal space has nearly doubled in size, and there are several new elements to be aware of inside the airport,” says Joachim Westher Andersen, head of communications.
“We are getting ready for a summer with a lot of passengers and a lot of luggage, so passengers are advised to allow some extra time at the airport. What makes this summer different from other summers is the fact that passenger numbers will remain high from the end of June to the end of July.”
