Three smaller airports, or just runways.

Ny-Ålesund Airport, Hamnerabben | Runway length: 927m
There are passenger flights between this airport and Svalbard Airport at Longyearbyen 2-3 times a week during summer, and 1-2 times during winter.



Troll Airfield | Runway length: 3 300m
Airport to the Norwegian research station Troll in Antarctica.



Jan Mayensfield | Runway length: 1 500m
Military airfield, but used by the Norwegian research center on the island.

Looking at those stats really proves that Norway has to do something about the third world state of it's national highway network. It's a travesty considering how wealthy Norway is supposed to be.

Not impressed, I thought when Gardermoen was designed expansion was supposed to be in the form of a midfield satelite terminal, this new pier doesn't really appear to have added that many new gates considering about 10 of the existing gate will be closed, by my count Gardermoen will only gain 8-9 new gates. I can also see it causing a bit of a disruption and increased taxing times depending upon which gate you leave from and which runway you use. At the moment Gardermoen is one of my favourite airports, it's easy to use, logically laid out and very efficient.

Even with a very good highway from Trondheim - Oslo, Tromsø - Oslo, Bergen - Oslo it would take 5-20 times as much time to travel by car/buss than plane. Taking the plane is also as cheap/cheaper as driving a car.

The only thing that will take some passengers off the planes is HSR. But that train need to be damn fast before i will take it instead of a plane. It should also be cheaper than a plane ticket.

From talking to Norwegian friends most travel overseas on holidays because it is easier than travelling in Norway for holidays, now if it was easier to travel within Norway ie because the roads were better, then a lot of people who take the family to Southern Europe might just stay home and see a little more of there own country instead. It's amazing how many Norwegians haven't travelled around Norway, I've been a lot more places here than many people I work with.

Norwegian airports to deploy Saab’s air traffic surveillance technology

Norway's air navigation service provider Avinor Air Navigation Services (Avinor ANS) is deploying Saab's wide area multilateration (WAM) technology for air traffic surveillance across the country's airports.
Replacing Avinor's legacy radar systems, the new NORWAMs will integrate the air traffic surveillance data across the country, and feed it to the ARTAS (advanced surveillance data system) tracker.
