Oslo Airport customer review

Very passenger-friendly airport pristine clean and modern easily accessible from the Oslo Area. Everything is marked clearly. Layout is simple and functional - domestic flights on the left pier international on the right one arrivals on level 1 departures - level 2 with the main hall in the middle. Well-marked meeting points and check-in stalls. It's almost impossible to get lost. The staff is helpful. Shops in duty-free area are quite cheap. Just under the airport there is a railway station. The quickest journey to Oslo S takes about 20 min by Flytoget but costs 170 NOK. It's better to take a RegionTog train (from the same platform direction Oslo S/Skien arriving every-hour from Lillehammer) - journey is only 5 minutes longer and the price is 85 NOK to Oslo S and 166 NOK to Drammen.

Oslo Airport customer review

Norway is not part of the EU. It is an EEC member country and as such they are considered international flights. Oslo airport - clean quite spread out and good array of amenities. Transport excellent and not really expensive when you look at the likes of London.

Oslo Airport customer review

Oslo Gardemoen is a modern and clean airport that meets the European standards. Only two bad comments can be added here. Firstly the Norwegian immigration officers are quite unpolite and they even check all the passengers coming from Schengen zone countries something unusual in the EU airports. Secondly the location of the airport is far away from the city 45km and expensive to access.

Oslo Airport customer review

A single terminal building. It took us all of 6 minutes to get from the train to the BA lounge (via both check-in and security). Downside is that from the lounge you still have to go through one check to let you into the international area and then passport control and we seemed to board at the furthest gate. There are two trains you can get to the centre run by different companies so make sure you get the right one. The airport express is fast regular and only stops at Olso central station. The other is slower but considerably cheaper and also continues part the central station which may be handier for your hotel.

Oslo Airport customer review

Overall a very nice & clean airport. The downside is especially the transportation to Oslo. Nice looking clean easy to get to public transportation - but location far out of Oslo very expensive ride to the Central station and long walks compared to the rather small size of the airport.

Oslo Airport customer review

A well-designed clean and pleasant airport which has the appreciated advantage of being smoke-free unlike other major European airports (CPH FRA). The one thing that would be a welcome and useful improvement would be a cheap simple travelers' hotel like the one at CPH especially since a fair number of flights seem to come in to Oslo after 22.00. With the airport being an hour away from the city unless your final destination is Oslo transit passengers are forced to take more of a lodging than they might like at an unnecessary price. I had friends take me home with them but I would have hoped to have found an in-house option like that in CPH from a new airport in Scandinavia. All in all a very warm and user-friendly structure as airports go.

Oslo Airport customer review

First experience with OSL was very favourable. On arrival first impression of the terminal building was warm and welcoming although it was mid-winter and the outside temperature was sub-zero. Immigration staff were friendly and efficient. Although the distance to baggage reclaim was fairly long it was along a clean and attractive corridor with wooden structure reflecting Norwegian ambience. Baggage appeared almost immediately after a brief visit to the immaculately kept toilets. The check-in hall was airy and clearly signed. Check-in security clearance and immigration check were all swift and friendly. There is a good selection of shops and catering facilities at fair prices beyond passport control. In summary we found OSL to be a joy to use and would not hesitate to recommend it !

A lot of walking here which can be a bit of a hassle particularly on arrival with a lot of hand baggage. There is now duty free on arrival with a fairly decent selection of goods. Something nice to do while you wait for your luggage!

Oslo Airport customer review

Perfectly nice airport in terms of aesthetics and layout but I do have one gripe- the SAS lounge (for international flights) was overheated and had virtually no food on a Sunday evening. Now I know it was quiet but pasta salad that looked like it had been lying out for hours and a couple of pieces of fruit is absolutely pathetic. I have been in Star Alliance airline lounges in many cities in Europe USA Asia and Australasia and while the lounge had pleasant amenities what is wrong with providing some decent food? Take a leaf from Air New Zealand's domestic koru club lounges- a selection of fruit fresh salads meat cake and even hot food - all for passengers flying no longer than say 1.5 hours or so. The Heathrow London Lounge has more food as well. This lounge was for international flights including long haul although I was only on a flight to London (which barring business class requires one to pay for a sandwich).

Oslo Airport customer review

Oslo airport is a torture for smokers. They have not designated any smoking area inside (there are no law against it) and the passengers have to go outside or use the lavatories. This is one of the reasons why many passengers from other places in Norway prefer CPH as the foreign hub for connections to outside Scandinavia. Especially if you have a long wait for connecting flights.
