Looking forward to: Jamie’s Italian opens in the international pier. Few things beat comfort food! Norwegians may love Italian food even more when a British TV chef interprets it. Jamie Oliver has a popular, social and down-to-earth style and I think this concept is going to work very well at an airport. I’m betting that
Jamie’s Italian is a perfect place to grab a bite to eat before boarding when I’m travelling with the whole family.
At Oslo Airport I also like to... Stop at the café Parken in the domestic pier. I think it’s lovely to sit down with my Mac for a few minutes to get an overview of a job before I travel. Toy planes are also a must when you bring small impatient souls who are compulsive.
Looking forward to: BIT opens in the international pier. I love to start a journey with good, healthy food! BIT also has superb options for those of us with gluten allergy!
At Oslo Airport I also like to... Get there in plenty of time, so I can lower both my shoulders and my travel heart rate. After I’ve checked in luggage and gone through security, I head for Duty Free, before I allow myself a snack and a glass of something good.
Bit Opens soon at Oslo Airport
Looking forward to: Tanum bookstore is opening in the international pier. I rarely go to the bookstores elsewhere, but when I’m at Oslo Airport, I think it is nice to take a look at what they have and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere that is always found in bookstores. I like to buy a magazine for the flight, and at Tanum they have a wide range of magazines for everyone.
At Oslo Airport I also like to... Enjoy having plenty of time and sitting down to read and relax. Also, I always buy lots of gum from Duty Free.
Looking forward to: Æra Women is opening in the international and the domestic pier. I love shopping and find it to be both a nice way to unwind as well as being a perfect activity to kill time while I am waiting to board. Æra Women will carry two of my favourite brands “Armani” and “Filippa K” so I guess I’ll be getting a little extra carry-on luggage next time I fly!
At Oslo Airport I also like to... Take a peek in several stores before I buy Vogue and sit down with a glass of wine.

It is also an ideal place to find gifts and I can’t wait to buy Scandinavian design items at the airport for my foreign friends.
At Oslo Airport I also like to... For me, a holiday begins at the airport, starting with a trip to Duty Free where I buy my skin-care favourites and then a bite to eat which I either enjoy at a restaurant or by the gate while I watch the bustle of airport life.
