Florø Airport Facts

Florø Airport is a regional airport serving Florø in Flora, Norway. It is situated on the southern shore of the island of Florelandet, adjacent to the town center. Owned and operated by the state-owned Avinor, it features a 1,264-meter  runway aligned 07/25. The airport had 201,686 passengers in 2014, making it the busiest regional airport in the country.

The airport is served by Widerøe on a public service obligation with flights to Oslo, Bergen, Kristiansund and Stavanger. Airwing operates flights to Stavanger and Notodden. CHC Helikopter Service flies to the North Sea oil platforms at Snorre, Visund, Gjøa and Knarr. The Royal Norwegian Air Force's 330 Squadron operates a Westland Sea King search and rescue helicopter out of Florø.

Construction of an airport first commenced in 1956, but was terminated. Florø Airport opened as part of a network of four regional airports on 1 July 1971. Widerøe served it with de Havilland Canada Twin Otters, later also de Havilland Canada Dash 7s. The heliport opened in 1994 and the runway was extended from the original 830 meters in 2000.

That year Coast Air took over the routes from Widerøe. Danish Air Transport resumed them in 2003 until Widerøe again won back the operations in 2012. The search and rescue base opened in 2009. There are proposals to extend the runway further.
