Hire a Private Jet to Tromso Airport

Tromso is located on the similarly named island of Tromsoya in Northern Norway and is the largest city in Norway’s three northernmost counties. It is the seat of the middle county of Troms, which lies entirely within the Arctic Circle. It has been the home of the Norwegian Polar Research Institute since 1993. Tromso Airport is one of the most important transport hubs in Northern Norway, with many flights to the neighbouring county of Finnmark to the north and east. A charter flight to Tromso and this fascinating region is sure to be of interest to fans of the Arctic.

History of Tromso Airport

The predecessor of today’s Tromso Airport was a water runway in Skattøra that had been established in the 1930s. During WWII it was taken over by the Luftwaffe but was given to the municipality of Tromso at the end of the war. Construction of a terminal building and a new shipyard followed in 1947, allowing faster aircraft and establishing a direct connection to Olso.

In 1950, the Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority determined that a proper airport should be built and construction began in 1953 at the current location. Tromso Airport officially opened in September 1964. Extensive renovations and improvements were carried out in the 1990s, including a new air traffic control tower and a passenger bridge. Today, the airport receives over two million passengers annually and more than 42,000 flight movements.

Charter a Private Jet to Tromso: Experience Northern Norway

The largest city in Northern Norway, Tromso is 344 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle and the home to the Norwegian Polar Research Institute, which was built in 1993. Tromso was and is the starting point of numerous Arctic expeditions. Thanks to its particular location, the city is also home to the northernmost university and cathedral in the world as well as the northernmost symphony and chamber orchestras in Europe. As is typical for Northern Norway, the midnight sun means daylight on a 24-hour basis from 17 May to 24 July. And the flipside occurs from 27 November to 14 January when the city of Tromso experiences the polar night.

The polar region serves as the theme for most of the city’s attractions. The Polaria Arctic Experience includes an arctic aquarium whereas the city’s Polar Museum tells the stories of the early explorers and polar seafarers. Those interested to learn more about the region’s culture should be sure to pay a visit to the Tromso Museum, while the Arctic Cathedral’s enormous stained glass window and stark architecture will be appreciated by those who favour modern design. Spectacular views over the region’s islands and fjords can be enjoyed from the top of the mountain Storsteinen.
