Practical information

ARRIVAL

You can travel to/from the airport by public transport, Bergen Light Rail (Bybanen) or the airport bus (Flybussen). The airport bus costs more than Bybanen, however the travel time is faster.

Bybanen: From the Bergen lufthavn stop, ride Bybanen in the direction of Byparken all the way to the central bus station.

Information about tickets is available at: www.skyss.no/en/tickets-and-prices/buying-tickets/. You can buy a ticket at the ticket machine near the exit before leaving the airport.

Flybussen: The airport bus will take you to the city centre. If you stay at Hotel Zander K. the bus stops nearby at the central bus terminal (Bergen Busstasjon). Tickets can be purchased on board, although it's cheaper to buy online using the Flybussen app or at the automat in the arrival hall where you pick up your luggage.
