When our flight was first, descending at the Bergen Flesland Airport, we couldn’t stop dwelling over the scenic beauty. Leading to an evanescent thrill of jumping out of the aeroplane, to get absorbed by the picturesque canvas of nature. From our viewpoint, it was a fine-piece of organic artwork depicting confined islands, traditional wooden homes, and crystal clear waters casting a pristine reflection. For others, it was a landing meant to liberate the muscles from the long-tiring journey. Little, did they know, that the airport itself is designed to relax all your senses. As soon as, we stepped out of the boarding bridge, an airport art gallery was waiting to welcome us.
An airport art gallery? Yes, the feeling Bergen Airport evokes with its numerous, wall and floor paintings is as good as, walking into an art museum. And, why not? After all, KODE, the master of aesthetic designs have designed this space. KODE, by the way, is the official art-designer of some of Bergen’s most-prominent historic centres.
We leisurely strolled our way through the passageway, admiring all the paintings and the floor-art on our way. Soon after, we were inside the terminal, which is yet, another small package of decorative wonders. In our opinion, Bergen Airport is a compact space as compared, to the 7mn annual traffic, it handles. The SAS, Norwegian Air Shuttle, and Wider Airlines take the cake away by being, the largest operating airlines at this airport. 2017 will see a new terminal at Bergen Flesland Airport, which, certainly will facilitate comfort to the passengers in transit.
When we flew to the Bergen Flesland Airport
We did window-shop through duty-free and the luxe designer stores at the airport. The ones that really, caught our attention were the ARG Fashion and the ‘Tanum’ Bookstore. Throughout Bergen Flesland Airport, we kept looking up to spot a new decorative item hanging off the ceiling.
Nonetheless, with 11 terminal gates, 32 jet bridges, and excellent Bergen Airport Express bus facility on display, Flesland Airport certainly meets our expectations. With a 15-minute wait time, an airport bus will transport you to downtown in about thirty minutes. A cab, more or less, would take the same time.
