Transport

Plane

There are three major plane companies within Norway. SAS and Widerøe has mostly fixed prices, and you can get quite cheap youth fare tickets if you are under the age of 25 even if you book the same day. Remember to click on "youth fare" while searching for tickets. Tickets booked with SAS include luggage of 23 kg without any additional fees, unless you are travelling with a Go Light ticket which is a low fare class that does not include checked baggage. Norwegian has often the cheapest offer if you plan your trip in advance, but remember that they have additional fees for luggage etc. If you are under 26 years old, use the discount code "UNDER26" for purchases on their website for additional discounts. Check if your flight is on time at Avinor's webpage.
