A losing battle
The Stavanger region is not as attractive when it comes to tourists, according to Avinor.

A losing battle

The international air traffic from the four largest cities in Norway has taken very different directions the last few years. Bergen and Oslo are charging ahead – while Trondheim and Stavanger remain on stand-by.
10.February 2020 Elianne Strøm Topstad

The majority of new direct flights leave from Flesland and Gardermoen, contributing to most of the growth. In addition, Bergen and Oslo have received economic support through incentives given by Avinor. The amount these two airports have received is double compared to the funds the remaining airports in Norway received collectively.


Consequently, Bergen is ahead of Stavanger in all statistics. The reasoning behind the differences in funding is that Bergen is far more attractive as a tourist destination, according to Avinor. An argument not accepted by the travel industry in Rogaland.
