When the new terminal is ready, the floorage will be tripled, to a total of 85,000m2. The selection of shops, convenience stores and restaurants will be important contributions to offering passengers the service, comfort and travel experiences they deserve when they travel to and from Flesland.
- Bergen Airport, Flesland is an important contributor to business growth and development in Western Norway. For many travelers, the airport is the first encounter with the region, and the start of the journey for the locals. We are both happy with and proud of the diversity of the retail outlets and restaurants we are able to offer passengers after the opening of the new terminal, Aslak Sverdrup, the Airport Director of Bergen Airport, Flesland, explains, before he adds: - We have implemented a thorough tender process from March 2015 till now, and have signed contracts with all retail and service operators.
These restaurants will be in place when the new terminal opens: Fiskeriet, Bølgen og Moi, Joe & The Juice, Espresso House, Altitude, Starbucks, Northland, Upper Crust and O’ Learys.
- During the tender process we wanted to ensure that the regional character is reflected by the new terminal, says Aina Tysse, the Business Development Manager of Bergen Airport, Flesland. - We have ended up with a broad specter of international and Norwegian concepts, Ms. Tysse explains, and continues:
- We are excited to see how the operators have succeeded with adapting their concepts to the new main air hub of Western Norway. Both the innovative design and the interiors are Nordic in character, with lots of light and woodwork, and there is focus on using raw materials from the region, such as fish and seafood, and fruit from Hardanger, just to mention a few, says Ms. Tysse.
Shops and convenience stores
There will also be a broader range of retail options with ARG fashion, Tanum, Travel Value, and Ting. All these retail outlets will be available for passengers, whether they are on a domestic or international journey.
- We will have two Duty Free shops, one for departing passengers and one for arrivals. And we are finally able to offer Travel Value for domestic travelers. This will make perfume and cosmetics available at Duty Free prices, says Ms. Tysse.
In total, there will be four convenience stores at Flesland: Narvesen, Deli de Luca, 7 Eleven and Point.
These are the operators that have signed an operations agreement: SSP, Norgesgruppen, Reitan Convenience, Joe & The Juice, Blender and Espresso House. The new retail outlets, restaurants and convenience stores will be under construction shortly, and will be ready for the opening.
