Haugesund International Airport is located in south-west Norway, 12 km from the city of the same name. Local and international airlines operating here offer direct flights to Oslo, Bergen, Gdansk, Copenhagen, Malaga and Alicante. The airport owes its popularity among budget travellers to the arrival of low-cost airlines Ryanair and Wizz Air.
Haugesund Airport consists of one passenger terminal, where free Wi-Fi is available to all passengers, although only for the first 2 hours of use.
According to the International Air Transport Association classification, Haugesund Airport has a code ‘HAU’.
The airport’s official website is www.avinor.no/en/airport/haugesund-airport/.
From airport to city
The easiest way to get to the centre of Haugesund is by bus.
There is a Flybussen shuttle bus at the terminal exit (right) that connects Haugesund Airport with the city. The departures of the buses are linked to the flight timetable. The fare is 100 Norwegian kroner, which is about €11. Tickets can be purchased from the driver or in advance on the carrier’s website – www.flybussen.no.
The shuttle-bus makes several stops along the way, the most central of which is ‘Hotell Amanda’ and the terminus is ‘Haugesund rutebilstasjon’. The whole trip to Downtown takes no more than 30 minutes.
Of course, you can also get to Haugesund by taking a taxi, which is parked opposite the terminal. If so, the journey will cost from 350 Norwegian kroner (€38) and the journey time will not exceed 20 minutes.
