Unusually for a European capital, December often throws up the best bargains on cheap tickets to Oslo. This is good news for winter sports fans, as this is when the city begins to gear up for the ski season. November is a quiet month when accommodation prices tend to be more affordable. Oslo’s famous jazz and chamber music festivals, both held annually in August, and the Norwegian Wood rock festival in June bring internationally renowned artists and their fans to the city, so demand for flights during these months can push up the prices.
A number of airlines offer direct flights to Oslo. Scandinavian Airlines flies from Manchester to Oslo Gardermoen Airport, Norwegian Airlines offers a direct service from Edinburgh, and BMI Regional links the city with Aberdeen. British Airways operates flights from its home base of London Heathrow, and the same route is served by Scandinavian carrier SAS. Norwegian Air Shuttle departs from London Gatwick, offering a choice of direct flights or a stopover in Copenhagen.

Oslo’s main international airport, Gardermoen, is almost 30 miles from the city centre, so leave time for the journey when making your travel plans. Luckily, there’s an extensive public transport network at your fingertips. The easiest transfer is the Flytoget Airport Express train, which runs from directly underneath the terminal to Oslo Central Station in under 25 minutes. There’s also an express coach service into the city centre, while local buses make more frequent stops. For door-to-door speed and convenience, pick up a cab from the rank outside the terminal.
