They really need the new planes, if they are going to open so many bases (RYG, BCN, etc.)

Interesting choice for a new base.

It amazes me how Oslo can maintain 3 airports with a population of about 1.3m (Urban).

I notice some of the routes are the same as Torp. Wonder if this will have an impact on the performance of Torps routes given Rygge is closer to Oslo City.

I think that Ryanair plans moving all machines to Rygge in future...

Present FR routes from RYG are:

ALC
BRE
CRL
GRO
STN
MAD
BGY
NYO

Also, FR operates these from TRF:

AHO; ALC; BLQ; BRE; DUB; NRN; EDI; HHN; GRO; PIK; KRK; LPL; LCJ; STN; MRS; BGY; BVA; PSA; CIA; TPS.

I wonder whether FR will consolidate its operations at RYG, as with FRL/BLQ, or still serve TRF and have a base at RYG, as with NYO/VST amongst others.

Nothing to do with FR - they don't operate the routes - but apparently 1.626m flew OSL-BGO and 1.615m OSL-TRD in 2007, making these routes the 12th and 13th busiest in Europe by passenger numbers.

Doesn't Sandefjord (aka Torp) have a local market? So even if FR move some flights to Rygge, couldn't it make sense to retain at least limited service at Torp to serve the local market? It's a rather long car journey for locals from the Sandefjord area to get to Rygge (not sure if there are any ferries they could use)

Great news! (On a sideline, I'm flying to Rygge at the weekend... how do you pronounce the name?)

Is there any indication that they're reducing/scrapping the base at TRF yet?

To take an example, KL flew 82,572 on AMS-TRF-AMS in 2008, almost identical to those flown in 2006 and 2007. Obviously KL also serves OSL, along with SK and DY. Perhaps this helps to answer your question?! Hmm!

The 3 'Oslo' airports; Gardermoen (OSL), Torp (TRF) and Rygge (RYG) serves not only Oslo but the whole Oslofjord Region as well as Eastern Norway with a total population of 2.5 million.

OSL is the main airport located 50km north of Oslo with an annual traffic of approx. 20 million pax. TRF is located on the western side of the Oslofjord, 100km south west of Oslo, close to the towns of Sandefjord, Tønsberg and Larvik with an annual traffic of approx. 2 million. RYG is located on the eastern side of the Oslofjord, 60km south east of Oslo, close to the towns of Moss, Fredrikstad and Sarpsborg with an annual traffic of approx. 700.000.

Great news. Having flown FR from both RYG and TRF, RYG is hands down more convenient. Let's just hope they add more LON-RYG flights because up to now times to TRF have been more convenient.You can drive Oslo city to RYG probably in around 45 mins, as opposed to almost double that for TRF. TRF does have a somewhat convenient train connection now, but the train ride is over an hour.

TRF doesn't only serve Oslo people. Plenty of people who live in Sandefjorf and the western part of the fjord.

Geography and current road infrastructure will do that.

Haha, funny you mention it. I flew STN-RYG on Oct 1st when the route had just started. The crew and the gate agents had absolutely no idea how to pronounce it. There was a glitch of sorts with the display in the airport monitors and when I asked the FR agents which gate the RYG flight departed from, they had no idea what airport I was talking about. I took a couple of tries before they figured it out. By the end of the flight, the crew was asking passengers for the right pronunciation. I was sitting in the front, and when we landed, the flight attendant asked me which country we were in.

There is no base at TRF.

Absolutely. I thought that was obvious, hence not expanding on it.

Why I am not surprised to hear that? Amazing....Was the crew STN based?

I don't know. I think the return flight should have gotten into STN a little after 9pm so I would assume that was the last flight of the day, but I really don't know. I'm sure someone else here has the answer.

The flight I'm returning on gets back into STN at 23:10 (I don't think there are any FR departures from STN after that time)... so I'd guess the crew operating at least my flight are based at STN.

This is due to the topography in Norway, with high mountains mixed with fjords cutting deep into the land. If you want to keep some kind of efficiency in your traveling in Norway, flying is the only means of transportation. Forget car or train.

Also, Norway is the land of the Scandinavian oil sheikhs Smile Too much money floating around in that country. People are grossly overpaid  duck
