Aalesund Airport Mini Guide

Why Should I go to Alesund?
Alesund is a popular destination for many reasons. It’s found built out over a small archipelago strewn out into the north Atlantic. Completely rebuilt in an art nouveau style following a devastating fire, the old part of the city still retains this beautiful but unusual look to it. The surrounding region is equally spectacular with dramatic fjords and isolated islands punctuating the coast. In wartime the city was occupied by the Germans and the tale is told at the city museum before you wander out to view the remains of the defences left behind in their wake.

What is the Best way to get to Alesund?
For passengers travelling from the UK, the company Norwegian Air Shuttle operate a route from Gatwick Airport. Flights to other European countries also land there and with the airport being only a couple of miles from the centre and easily accessed by the road tunnels, the airport is confident that you can be in your hotel within 30 minutes of leaving the airport.

Aalesund Airport

What is the Airport Like?
The airport is modern and with expansion plans for the future. Built in 1958 it underwent several upgrades leading to the building of a new terminal which opened in 2010. Originally accessible only by ferry, the airport is now more easily reached by the tunnels that opened in 1986. Inside it’s fresh and light and with enough space to make you feel relaxed throughout the airport experience.

What Should I do When I Land at Alesund Airport?
You’ll disembark along jet ways into the terminal building, a fact you’ll appreciate in the depths of a snowy winter. Once inside, it’s only a brief walk to the passport checks and from there to the baggage reclaim belts. These are found on the lower level like many modern airports and are accessed by lift or escalator. At Alesund, if you are arriving on an international flight, you can use the duty free facility to make cheap purchases of alcohol and gifts. Once in the arrivals hall you’ll see the airport information desk ahead of you where you’ll be able to find out more about the airport’s facilities which include free internet access with vouchers from the desk. Car hire desks are found there too and once formalities are completed, you’ll be able to collect your car from outside the terminal.

What are the Facilities Like for the Departing Passenger?
Facilities are a little limited at Alesund. There’s a small newsagent/gift shop and a duty free outlet for international departures but that’s about it. To eat at the airport you’ll have a similarly small choice with a café serving hot meals and snacks plus a bar in the departure lounge serving cold snacks. Beyond that it’s the fare on sale at the kiosk or from the vending machines.
