Norway’s second busiest airport in Bergen serves Hordaland county and the city of Bergen in the south-west of the country.
Bergen Airport operates connecting flights to major cities in Norway as well as international destinations. Well-known airlines here are Widerøe, Norwegian and SAS.
Bergen Int. Airport is located 20 km from Bergen city. There is one terminal here, and the airport bus stops right outside the main terminal.
Normally transport time from Bergen to the airport approx. 25 minutes.
The best way to get into the centre of Bergen is by the frequent bus service.
The bus leaves from Radisson Blu Royal Hotel at Bryggen, via Radisson Blu Hotel Norge and the bus station (platform 17) to the airport and return (the same route).
Approx. 25 minutes bus ride at off-peak hours. For departure times, inquire the airlines or at the Tourist Information. Approx. departures are three times per hour, less frequently on weekends. The Bergen Card does NOT include transportation from or to the airport.
Taxis wait outside the airport. They do go faster than the airport bus, but they do cost a lot more. If you are travelling during the morning or evening peak periods you will need to allow extra time for sitting in stationary traffic (bus and taxi).
Almost all of the taxi drivers in Bergen speak English. If you are going elsewhere than the centre of Bergen, a taxi might be a smart choice. You can ask the driver to tell you about Bergen, places to visit, etc.
