Today is the big day for Oslo Airport as it opens its new Terminal 2 building.
The Terminal 2 extension project took a total of 9-years to complete, with a cost of nearly 2 billion USD, but now Norway’s main airport is ready to better serve the 26 million passengers that pass through its doors every year.
The new terminal is 300 meters long and adds a total of 117,000 square meters to the existing 148,000 square meter airport. This makes Oslo Airport Gardermoen, situated 45km North of the Norwegian capital Oslo, the second biggest airport in the Nordic countries, beaten only by Copenhagen airport, and a place of work for over 15,000 employees.
During the projects construction, approximately 10 % of the overall project budget was spent keeping the existing airport running. This ensured that any inconveniences to the airlines, airport employees, and travelers flying in to or out of OSL were kept to an absolute minimum.
The new terminal project also included upgrades to some of the existing terminals and facilities, and Safran Project was an important component in successfully delivering the Terminal 2 project.
