Technical revival

Oslo Airport will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2023. While our terminal design endures the test of time, some of the airport’s original technical systems are due for an upgrade.

The brand new baggage handling system (BHS) about to be installed will be amongst the most efficient in the world. It spans across the entire airport – from the check-in hall, via scanning and sorting rooms in the basement, to the piers where the baggage is prepared to be placed on flights. Baggage handling will now become far safer for staff and airlines will benefit from having fewer delays and less lost baggage.

Improved flow and efficiency

For passengers, the most visible change will be the self-service bag drops in the check-in hall for improved flow and increased efficiency. A new check-in island for airlines requiring check-in desks will also be added.

The spacious check-in hall itself remains unchanged, but the layout has been significantly altered. In accordance with the overall design concept and material palette for the terminal, check-in counters are executed in timber and self-service bag drops in glass and aluminium. The timeless and robust design creates a friendly environment for travellers passing through.
