Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us about their time at Bergen Airport.

What to Expect

Bergen Airport consists of a modern (new as of August 2017), mid-size, two-level terminal. While described as exceptionally busy, the terminal only hosts a dozen or so shops, restaurants, bars and cafes, only one of which offers 24-hour service. WiFi is available to help pass the time, and there are reportedly plenty of power outlets with which to charge mobile devices. There are no private lounges at this airport.

Where to Sleep

As of May 2018, we only have one review from a traveller who has experience the new terminal building. That traveller reported that the airport has plenty of space, good chairs, is relaxing, and was a “pure pleasure.” If you travel through Bergen Airport, please write a new review to help future travellers! For uninterrupted sleep, there is a hotel connect to the airport, and several others nearby. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
