Bergen Airport Flesland – Only one public terminal for domestic and international flights
Your plane will land at the “Bergen Airport, Flesland”, situated 12 miles (20 kilometers) south west of Bergen. It is only one public terminal for domestic and international flights. The airport bus stops just outside this main terminal. The second terminal is for helicopters only.
The Bergen Airport is about 25 minutes away from the center of Bergen, depending on the traffic. Modern, compact, well equipped, and has all conveniences, like duty free shops, souvenir stores. No voice announcing.
Taxis wait outside the airport. They do go faster than the airport bus, but they do cost a lot more. If you are traveling during the morning or evening peak periods you will need to allow extra time for sitting in stationary traffic (bus and taxi).

The helicopter terminal is located next to the main terminal building, in the north direction. Located in walking distance to the main terminal. The helicopters use the same runways as the public flights for landing and take-off.
