Charter a Private Jet to Oslo

Located just 50 kilometres outside the city, Oslo OSL Airport is Norway’s largest airport. It features two runways for landing and take-off, and offers an exclusive VIP service at the airport – ideal for private jet passengers looking for comfortable and discreet travel.

Oslo Airport Overview

Formerly known as Oslo Fornebu Airport, the international airport is now used for military and civilian aviation. After opening in 1912, the airport served as the Royal Norwegian Air Force’s primary airfield for several decades. The increased number of flights in the early 90’s quickly exceeded the capacity of the then Oslo Fornebu Airport, and so Oslo Gardermoen replaced it with a civilian check-in area. The grand reopening took place in 1998. Today, Oslo Airport is known as one of the most modern and reliable airports in Europe: in 2007 airport authorities introduced the world’s first ever customs duty payment machine, allowing passengers to declare and pay duty on goods themselves. The Association of European Airlines has recognised the airport as the most punctual airport in Europe four times. Previously known as Oslo Gardemoen Airport, it officially became known as Oslo Airport in 2013,.
