The site of the airport was used by the military as far back as 1740, but became an airfield during Nazi occupation in World War II. In the 1980's, as traffic was heavily increasing around the Oslo area proposals for a larger airport were emerging and Oslo Airport was formally constructed in 1994 and opened in 1998. Due to a further increase in traffic a larger expansion plan will begin soon, designed to handle more aircraft along with a new expansion to the terminal.
The current terminal is large and filled mainly with what is the largest duty-free shop in Europe and many restaurants. There are also VIP sections for royalty and plenty of business lounges. The airport was designed by a number of architects and helps to convey a light, floating atmosphere for passengers as they pass through. In addition to this, there are also a number of statues and facilities that can be found dotted among the terminal.
The outstanding location of the airport, located just 45 kilometers north of downtown Oslo, means that you can immediately take advantage of the excellent road network with a car rental Oslo Airport and through into Norway, a sparsely populated but wealthy country with an incredible culture that rivals its equally breathtaking scenery.
