Renews the food and beverage concepts at Oslo Airport


The food and beverage offerings at Oslo Airport are undergoing a significant transformation, designed to enhance the travel experience for passengers. As part of the most substantial change in the airport’s culinary concept since its expansion in 2017, travelers’ favorites take center stage.

Earlier this spring, Avinor announced and finalized new contracts with dining establishments at Oslo Airport. These sub-contracts, valued at approximately 6.5 billion Norwegian kroner, will span five to seven years and have been awarded to six different companies: SSP Norway, HMSHost, Bit Union, Reitan Convenience, LETT, and Joe & the Juice.

While many established favorites will remain or expand, significant portions of the existing offerings will be replaced by fresh, more fitting concepts. Soon, passengers will enjoy an even greater selection of Norwegian favorites at the main airport. 

Joachim Lupnaav Johnsen, Commercial Director at Avinor, emphasizes the commercial impact of these changes:  

— We believe that the modifications to our food and beverage offerings will be exciting and positive for travelers. 

Avinor’s strategy involves expanding the most popular concepts throughout the airport, catering to the preferences of both Norwegian travelers and tourists visiting Norway. 

— We’ve closely observed which restaurants our visitors prefer, Johnsen adds. This focus allows us to enhance the dining experience for everyone. 

Norwegian favorites 
O’Learys Sports and Gastrobar, previously exclusive to the international terminal, is now expanding to the domestic side. Situated on the second floor, this venue offers a view of the spacious, but busy terminal near the large departure board, occupying the same space that T.G.I Fridays has held for the past few years. At O’Learys, sports broadcasts will entertain travelers throughout the opening hours, complemented by a diverse menu tailored to Norwegian food preferences during their journeys. 

The demand for healthy and affordable food extends to many airport visitors, prompting favorites like Bit Union and LETT to expand and establish additional locations on the domestic side. 

— There is a high demand for nutritious and reasonably priced meals. We are pleased to announce that both Bit Union and LETT, originating from Oslo, will soon be available in the domestic area, alongside their continued service to passengers traveling abroad, Lupnaav Johnsen continues. 

In addition, a spacious wine bar named "Tigerstaden" will open on the new square in the international area. This eagerly anticipated eatery, with subtle nods to the capital city, provides an excellent option for vacationing passengers seeking relaxation and enjoyment. Italian cuisine will take center stage, as two new Italian restaurants—one in the domestic area and another in the international area—open their doors. 

— We have chosen to focus on restaurants with broad appeal. Our goal was to create a place where families and friends can find something they love on the menu, which is why we chose Italian cuisine, says Lupnaav Johnsen. 

Food on the go 
The options for travelers will also be strengthened in areas of the terminal where commercial options have been somewhat limited. Several dining establishments will have convenient "Grab & Go" solutions, which is an established and popular way for passengers to grab a quick meal before their flights. 

— Overall, we’re confident that these changes will elevate the food experience for travelers. We’re introducing new and exciting options while also maintaining and expanding the concepts that have already won favor with many, concludes Lupnaav Johnsen.
