Norway plane tickets & flights
A desirable destination in Europe that is so cold that there are only a few month during the year when one can visit it without experiencing freezing cold.
The islands, the fjords, lakes, valleys, cliffs and mountains, the beautiful small towns and fishing ports are iconic to this country.
The highest life standards in the World dominate in the country and finding yourself cheap flights to and within Norway won't be an easy task. If you reside in Norway, search the local Expedia site for a list of international flights to and from this Scandinavian country.
Hopefully with this little guide you will be able to learn how to best organize your trip and how to save on services!
Excellent infrastructure: modernized airports and internal connections even to some small towns and islands. Most of Norway's important cities and big towns have an airport.
Prices are very high.
Flights to Oslo and Bergen are most intense. There are less flights to Trondheim, Ålesund and other cities.
Through Oslo there are excellent connections with the big Western European capitals, but less with North America, Asia and you could even forget the rest of the World!
Very high airport taxes and other taxes increase the operational costs of airlines. This implicates very high tickets prices. You will always have a hard time finding a cheap flight to Norway, even if you travel from Germany or the UK.
This country has the highest life standards in the World, so expect the highest prices!
