About Bergen Flesland - Flesland Airport

Built in 1953 in the Flesland region of Bergen, Norway, with the economic support of NATO, Flesland Airport has been organizing civil and military flights since its opening. A military air station was built at the airport, which was officially opened in 1955, in order to provide military trainings. The military air station of the airport, which gained great importance during the Cold War, was renewed in 1962, and NATO aircrafts began to perform training flights at the airport.

Flesland Airport, which is the second busiest airport of the country, organizes regular flights to many cosmopolitan cities especially Antalya, Paris, Rome, London, Stockholm, Amsterdam and Copenhagen.
