Number of passengers at airports in Norway 2012-2018

The number of passengers recorded at Norwegian airports increased from roughly 46.5 million in 2012 to more than 54 million as of 2018. Handling more than half of all air traffic in Norway, Oslo Airport is by far the largest airport in the country. Bergen, Trondheim, and Stavanger also play an important role concerning international air transportation.

Airports operated by state-owned Avinor

The airports included in the statistic belong to Avinor, a government-owned company that operates not only airports, but also air navigation services in the civilian and military area. According to the most recent figures, Avinor generated an operating income of more than 10.3 billion from airport operations and roughly 2.1 billion Norwegian kroner from navigation services.

International and domestic flight passengers

Nearly half of the 54 million passengers arrived at or departed from Norwegian airports in 2018 were domestic travelers. International passengers of scheduled flights accounted for only a third that year. A survey conducted in May 2018 found that most of the international tourist bookings and arrivals came from the United States and Germany.
