Oslo Airport: 185,000 tonnes of cargo were flown in or out of it in 2017
An increase of 35% compared to the previous year
Avinor Oslo Airport saw a huge increase in air cargo in 2017, the biggest volumes of which were exports of fresh Norwegian seafood.
In 2017, 185,000 tonnes of air cargo were flown in or out of Oslo Airport. That is an increase of 35 per cent compared to the previous year.
Several new cargo airlines have chosen to add Oslo Airport into their network last year, and these have helped to reduce the onward journey length of Norwegian seafood and to increase capacity significantly.
Atlas Air with direct flights to Seoul, CAL with direct flights to Tel Aviv, Turkish Cargo to Istanbul and DHL with its service between Lakselv and Oslo Airport, were all new routes from Norway’s main airport in 2017.
Import of ecommerce with airlines such as TNT, FedEx, DHL and UPC increased by 25 per cent in 2017. 58 per cent of all air cargo from Oslo Airport was transported on dedicated cargo planes. On intercontinental passenger routes to Asia, Africa and the USA, there has been a growth of 52 per cent of cargo flown.
Over the last few years, Avinor Oslo Airport has become a major hub for air cargo carriers in the Nordic region.
