With the arrival of a new terminal at OSL in the next couple of years and the fact that OSL is Scandinavia's second largest airport (with regards to passenger numbers) could it ever be conceivable for SAS and other airlines such as Thai and Malaysian to move long haul operations from ARN to OSL??


Next Flights: LGW-SVG (738-DY), SVG-LHR (319-BA), LHR-HKG (388-BA), HKG-SYD (333-CX), SYD-HKG (333-CX), HKG-LHR (388-BA)

Most likely not. Remember that although OSL is nr 2 in terms of passengers in Scandinavia is this mainly due a the domestic traffic. ARN is alot bigger than OSL in terms of International traffic

I don't think so.
Both CPH and ARN is bigger on international traffic and SAS is feeding traffic to/from these to cities now, and doing a good job at it. You could say a lot of things about SAS, but using CPH and to some extent ARN as hubs is probably the way to do it for them. Thai and Malaysian won't move their ops either I think, but OSL could get more attractive for other airlines when they open the new terminal. Personally I would love to see more airlines and international traffic to/from OSL, but I think CPH always will be a first choice for airlines wanting to start ops in Scandinavia.CPH and ARN is always going to be the main airports in Scandinavia, sad as it may be for us Norwegians.

CO to EWR

and I guess you could count PIA's flight as well although it does stop in CPH

Domestic travel in Sweden has become less and less popular, mostly due to the environmental impact. It's more convenient and cheap to take the train, that is why the domestic traffic at ARN has decreased. In Norway on the other hand taking the train from Oslo to Bergen takes 7-8 hours and it costs much too, flying is therefore the cheapest and most convenient way of travel within Norway. IMO OSL is a very nice airport and it seemed like the domestic area was almost as big as the international. Norway is a very beautiful country with nice and friendly people and i sure hope that more international carriers will start flying to OSL.

The split between international and domestic traffic at OSL is roughly 52:48, so international traffic is only marginally larger than domestic

well i guess OSL would need to expand the non-schengen area to handle more intercontinental flights... Then again now that the new EU states are members of Schengen that has freed up a few gates i guess...
