How Early To Arrive At Tromso Airport Before Flight To Oslo

We will be flying from Tromso to Oslo on Sunday, May 31at at around 5:30PM. How much time before the flight should we arrive at Tromso Airport? Is one hour before the flight adequate, or should we arrive 1.5-2.0 hours before the flight?

It is always advisable to be at the airport in adequaste time for doing the necessary check-in, security checks etc. I would say 1,5 - 2 hrs ahead of your departure.

You may check the airport express bus schedules and times to find how they comply with recommended journey time:

Tromsø is a relatively small airport and the bus ride from downtown is very short.

Hi,

I flew out of Tromso in Jan to the UK. I asked at the tourist info office and they said an hour was plenty. Being overly cautious we arrived 1 1/2 hrs early and found that an hour would have been fine!

There's very little customs/security wise.

For a domestic flight, one hour should be fine - it's a small airport. Sunday afternoon is normally relatively busy, though, so wouldn't be there later than one hour before departure.

(This is during Pentecost, btw, and June 1st is a holiday in Norway, shops etc will be closed that Monday)

Thank you all for the helpful replies.I'm going to take a later flight to Oslo than I originally planned, so that I can sight see in Tromso and still have ample advance time at the airport.
