A very small airport, just nine kilometres southwest of Haugesund in Norway, Haugesund Airport opened in 1975. The airport is operated by Avinor, an owner and operator of 46 airports, with their headquarters in Oslo, Norway.
The airport has one terminal serving domestic flights, operated by SAS Braathens to Bergen and Oslo. Coast Air, a regional airline, has its hub at the airport, with many flights to small destinations such as Bergen, Fagernes, Molde and Sandefjord. International flights flying to London Stansted are provided by Ryan Air.
The airports facilities are quite limited, with only one restaurant and one caf offering drinks and snacks. Haugesund Sparebank provides a mini bank with an ATM, while the only place passengers can do their last-minute shopping is at a small duty-free shop.
There are no business facilities at the airport. Passengers with disabilities can find wheelchair-accessible toilets on the first floor.
The airport is about 20 minutes drive from the city centre. Driving to the airport is easy. If you travel from Bergen city, take the E39 to the main road to the airport area. Follow the signposts, which will take you straight to the airport. From Haugesund city centre, take the main road and simply follow the signposts.
There are 200 short-term and 150 long-term parking spaces located just outside the terminal building.
Taxis are available from in front of the airport to take you to the town centre. The main bus station is located at Flotmyr Haugesund, close to the airport. Airport bus services leave for the city centre, 25 minutes after an airplane lands.
