About the Host
The 15th Routes Europe will be hosted by Avinor.
Avinor’s 44 airports is a hyper-connected aviation network linking Norway and the world. Avinor has taken a leading role in reducing aviation emissions and introducing sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). In 2016 Oslo Airport became the first international hub in the world where sustainable aviation fuels were available for all airlines on a commercial basis. Avinor is also a driving force behind the planned introduction of electric aircraft routes in Norway. Our vision is that by 2040 all domestic air traffic in Norway will be electrified.
Avinor provides safe and efficient travel for around 50 million passengers annually, half of whom travel to and from Oslo Airport.
Over 3000 employees are responsible for planning, developing and operating an efficient airport and air navigation service. Avinor is financed via airport charges and commercial sales. The air navigation services are organized as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Avinor. Avinor's headquarters are in Oslo.
Avinor is a wholly-owned state limited company under the Norwegian Ministry of Transport and Communications.
