Oslo Airport customer review

Oslo airport though a clean one is unfunctional and an unpleasant experience. It is built in one long line meaning that one has to walk a very long distance from one flight to another or to exit the airport. In addition the security system is a bit strange - the laptop computers need to be taken out of their bags in the security control the security gates with metal alarm are so sensitive that everybody who has shoes with even smallest parts of metal have to take the shoes off and walk in socks through the sensor gate. After such a control one would expect that the restaurants in the transit area are not allowed to use metal knives and forks but this is not the case.

To avoid the very expensive prices on the airport express train take the local train to Oslo which will cost less than half the price but takes some more minutes to its destination. These trains run every hour ask at the NSB ticket counter.

Oslo Airport customer review

Lost my backpack when I was re-checking in my bag at the transfer counter at the arrival hall (right hand side after coming out from customs). I was the only customer at the counter at that time. A few meters behind me was the busy arrival hall. The backpack was on the trolley next to me. When I removed my single bag to the weighing belt the backpack was still there. A few seconds later with my boarding pass at hand I turned back and the backpack was gone! The counter lady didn't see anything (although she was facing me most of the time) and the people around also had no clue. Wallet ATM cards student ID important keys camera etc. were gone! Fortunately the airport police and the staff at the Lost & Found counter were very polite & helpful. This provided some relief to my stressed hours. Thank you to these people! Learning: I thought I had travelled abroad many times and knew how to take care of my belongings. But a few seconds of letting down my guard did cause me a handful of stress. One cannot be too careful when it comes to the safety of his/her belongings.

Oslo Airport customer review

The architecture is really nice and the airport is very functional. However it is located too far from the city centre and it is expensive. Oslo Gardemoen airport opened (well opened as the main airport of Oslo) when Fornebu was closed in the late 90's. Fornebu was too small and there were no opportunities to enlarge it but it was only 8 km from the city centre which was excellent. When winds came from the west one could see the entire city centre on approach to the airport. The new airport is like 45 km north of the city centre. Going there is very pricey the express train is ridiculously expensive the bus not much cheaper and we shouldn't even think about the cost of taking a cab. Otherwise the airport is enjoyable to use

Oslo Airport customer review

I've used the Oslo airport once in 2003. My impression of this airport is that it is really big for a small city like Oslo. I walked a long way for my connection although both of my flights are within Schengen countries. And that day the airport is practically almost empty.

Oslo Airport customer review

Oslo Airport is very nice to look at but impractical to use because it is built in one long straight line. Transfers from domestic to international flights all take place near one end. They can involve a very long walk and it is an irritation that the moving walkways from the transfer area go in one direction only - the wrong one. One trick if arriving domestically is to ignore the transfer signs. Instead go through the baggage claim area and out to the main arrivals area then upstairs; then go through security (which you would have to do in the transfer area anyway) and on to your international gate. You will probably have saved yourself 10 minutes and a long walk. Other irritants: the ladies' toilets are too small - getting a trolley into them is impossible and getting a wheeled carry-on bag in is difficult enough. There is a lift (elevator) in the transfer area but it is rarely available for use. And it's hard to find a drink of water anywhere.

Oslo Airport customer review

I have only one negative comment about Oslo airport and that is the total lack of small baggage trolleys for use between the aircraft arrival point and the baggage carousels. The walk from aircraft to baggage collection can be a considerable distance which makes it difficult for passengers with children and elderly passengers carrying hand baggage.

Oslo Airport customer review

Bright open architecture sleek design and proximity to ground transportation (including train to the center of town) and hotels makes this airport one of my favorites. My major beef is in the way transfers are organized. I've had a couple of tight connections and unless you're a long-distance olympic runner it is NOT fun to sprint from one end of the terminal where the domestic arrival transfer points are to the other end where international flights depart.

Probably the best airport I have used. Right from the airport layout the architecture transport connections (arguably the best airport express) cleanliness cheerful and friendly staff this comes ahead of any airport in the world.
