Glimpse of Trondheim Airport

If you are going to Ørland, you need to book a flight to Trondheim. Trondheim Airport is the nearest airport in my mom’s place. I think they have airport in Ørland but the flight is limited and airfare is very expensive so people still choose Trondheim Airport which is located in Værnes in Nord-Trøndelag county.


Trondheim Airport is the fourth busiest airport in the country, they have two terminals, one for domestic and one for an international flight. The airport is not that big so you will not get lost and you have nothing to do if you are early. We experienced that when we went to Iceland, we were so early because we took the early ferry boat schedule para hindi naman kami maghabol sa flight namin.



Unlike in the Philippines, people here can go inside the airport. When we arrived in Trondheim, we were walking fast to the baggage carousel and I did not notice that my stepdad was already walking towards us. I was expecting na paglabas pa namin ng airport siya makikita. Hehehe! So he helped us in getting our luggage and off we went to the parking lot.


If you don’t have a service, don’t worry because you can ride bus, train and car service, you can see those transportations outside the airport. From the Ferry Terminal, we rode the bus to the airport. Fare is NOK150 per person but my mom got a discount when she showed our ticket from the Ferry boat. In Norway, they have different rates, meron for kids, for family, PWD, seniors and etc.

When we went back to the Philippines, my mom accompanied us until check-in counter. After we checked-in my mom went home na rin. She told me that she rode train on her way back to Ferry Terminal. She went to the bus but the bus driver informed her that she can ride train because the bus will not leave soon. Oh di ba, bus driver pa nagsuggest na magtrain na lang siya para di mainip. My mom did not know that so next time itry din naman magtrain. Fare is much cheaper too, I think NOK80+ lang per person.



There is a hotel near the airport, this is where we stayed before going back to the Philippines. You can check my Radisson Blu Hotel review here and here. This is the reason why I have top view photos of the Trondheim Airport, because this is our view from our hotel room.

At the aiport, you can check-in using the machine or at the counter. We checked-in at the counter because when we tried the machine, our airline was not included in the option. At the lobby, there are few options for food and drinks but after the security check, medyo marami na rin choices. We tried 7-11, Pizza Hut and Simply Good Eats and Treats Restaurant. Food and drink are not cheap so it is best to bring an empty water bottle so you can refill water at the drinking station.






There is Duty-Free Shop too, where you can buy pasalubong and souvenirs from Norway.



I saw an ATM too where you can choose the currency, though I haven’t tried it.


And because we’re so early, we experienced na wala pa kami 5 persons sa boarding gate.

Free wifi at the airport but for a limited time only (I'm not sure if 2hrs only). I used their wifi when we arrived from Iceland then when we checked in the following morning, I couldn't connect to the wifi, maybe because wala pa 24 hrs simula nung ginamit ko siya. Good thing our boarding gate is near Radisson Blu Hotel, so nakiconnect na lang ko dun. hehehe!

  2. I find exploring airports exciting lalo na if it's a big one and has lots of stores. Haha! At least even if this one is small meron pa din naman mae-explore. And kahit pano may wifi. :)

  4. Shalene and Michi, I've never been to any Duty Free shops, haha. Kaya ok lang yan na di na kau nakakavisit, isipin nyo nalang ako na di pa nakakapunta ever. lol! Kidding aside, one of the things I envy sa mga countries like this is ung security. Dito sa Pinas, hanggang labas ka lang talaga sa airport. hehe.

  5. I agree to Shalene, your blog bring us to different places. Nakakatuwa naman dyan pwedeng pumasok sa airport mismo. Nacurious din ako sa ATM with different currencies.. 🙂

  7. I love airports. I dont know why. But I just love the fact that I could see different races walking around. I love it best when they have comfortable lounges or even seats plus free wifi.
