Tromsø Airport, formerly known as Tromsø Airport, Langnes (IATA: TOS, ICAO: ENTC) (Norwegian: Tromsø lufthavn) is situated in Tromsø, on the western side of the island of Tromsøya, 1.7 Nautical miles (3.1 km) northwest of the city center, which is on the eastern side of the island. The airport is the largest airport in Northern Norway (Norwegian: Nord-Norge), serving 1,557,000 passengers in 2006.

Tromsø Airport serves Tromsø, as well as northern and central parts of Troms county. It is an important hub for flights to many airports in Finnmark, though most passengers travel to and from Oslo. Most scheduled flights are domestic, including flights to Svalbard Airport, Longyear at Longyearbyen, though a few international destinations are also served (London Gatwick, England, Riga, Latvia and Murmansk, Russia). Additionally, charter operators fly to some destinations in Southern Europe and the Canary Islands.

History

Work on the airport began on July 1, 1963, and it was officially opened for traffic on September 14, 1964. The city had enjoyed regularly scheduled flights from the 1930s, including the all important route to Oslo since 1939. However, until Tromsø Airport opened, all such traffic had been handled by seaplanes. In 1974 the airport became a hub for the new regional STOL (short takeoff and landing) network that opened in Finnmark using de Havilland Twin Otter aircraft.

The original terminal was replaced by a newer building, shaped like a semicircle, in 1977. The current terminal was built in 1998 as part of a comprehensive expansion and modernization of the airport; it included a new control tower and, for the first time, passenger jet bridges at several gates. Part of the road leading to the airport was re-routed in a tunnel under the runway. Some portions of the older terminal buildings are still in use.
