“The disappointing summer weather in Norway this year caused many Norwegians to book last-minute trips to warmer climates. The increase is most likely a result of this and the fact that last year’s summer in Norway was one of the best. Overall, this gives us a nice boost in traffic,” says traffic director at Oslo Airport, Jasper Spruit.
