Oslo airport is located some 50 km (30 miles) outside of Oslo, and was opened in 1998. Since then, the airport has been through a significant expansion, also in terms of services. The airport offers a range of transport options to travellers from near and far.

Private driver / chauffeur

For a stress-free ride all the way to your hotel door, choose a private car or limousine. Many of them offer fixed rate transfers. Oslo Chauffeur Service  and Private Driver offer various car types depending on your need. A car ride from the airport to the city center takes approximately 30-45 minutes. The cost of private driver services vary, but typically start at 2500 NOK for one way (about USD 300).

Taxis

Most taxis operate with a flat fee from the airport to Oslo city center, but we recommend that you always check this before you start your ride. You will find taxis outside the terminal. Prices for a taxi ride vary by company, time of day and number of passengers, but the cost of taxi from Oslo airport to city centre typically starts at 800 NOK for 2 people during the daytime on a weekday.

Train

In addition to the national railway operator NSB, the privately owned airport express train Flytoget operates between Oslo Airport and Oslo city (and beyond). There is direct access to both train operators from the terminal building. Flytoget leaves every 10-20 minutes, but late at night every 30 minutes. Trains to the city center take some 20 minutes. One way tickets are around 110-200 NOK, depending on which company you choose.

Bus

There are several bus companies that operate between the airport and Oslo city, and many of them cater for areas outside the city center, so do make sure to check before you get onboard a bus. SAS Flybussen operates between the airport and the city center. You will find timetables and can purchase tickets in the terminal. Busses take up to 1 hour to reach the city center. One way tickets are around 200 NOK.
