Avinor to install a moving walkway on the pedestrian bridge leading to gates B1-B8
Avinor is set to install a moving walkway on the pedestrian bridge leading to domestic arrival and departure gates B1-B8 at Oslo Airport in order to reduce the amount of time travellers spend walking and to improve their overall experience.
Gates B1-B8 are located the furthest walking distance away from the central terminal area at Oslo Airport. In order to reduce the time it takes to walk to these gates and improve the overall experience of domestic passengers, a moving walkway is to be installed in both directions. Avior has signed a delivery contract and work on installation and upgrading the area will commence on Tuesday 9 October.
“The provisional permits for the pedestrian bridge and the B gates have been extended until the end of 2021 with our intention to make this structure a permanent one.”
“We have listened to passengers’ feedback about the distance they have to walk, and we are now installing a moving walkway in order to improve their overall travel experience,” says Communications Manager Joachim Westher Andersen.
Passengers will have to use the shuttle bus
With effect from 9 October and for the four subsequent weeks the passenger bridge will be closed in order to undertake the construction work. A “pedestrian bridge bus” will be provided during this period, which means that passengers leaving Oslo Airport will have to use the shuttle bus when they are due to depart from one of the B gates.
“We have set up a separate shuttle bus gate in the domestic terminal. From this gate passengers departing from one of the B gates will see signposts showing them the way, and the buses will provide a continuous shuttle services for B-gate passengers. The re-routed course for passengers will be well marked during this period,” explains Mr. Westher Andersen.
Passengers arriving at Oslo Airport on flights which park at one of the B gates will be collected from their planes by bus and driven to the Arrivals Hall/Baggage Reclaim Area or to a transfer point if they are transferring to another flight out of Oslo.
After the initial 4-week construction phase, the passenger bridge will be open for passengers leaving the airport. Passengers arriving at the airport will be transferred directly by bus to the Arrivals Hall/Baggage Area Reclaim/transfer point until the area is ready in December.
The shuttle bus service will operate continuously between Gate A16 and the B pier with frequent departures during those periods when required.
Please allow extra time
Passengers who are due to depart from one of the B gates are requested to follow the signs in the normal way. The signs will be adapted to suit the current situation during the reconstruction period.
“According to our plans, the “pedestrian bridge bus” will not take any longer to reach the B gates, although it might be wise for passengers departing from one of the B gates to allow an extra 5-10 minutes in order to walk from the central area in the terminal,” says Mr. Westher Andersen.
“In future the moving walking will ensure that it will be easier and faster to reach the B gates from the terminal, and we are looking forward to welcoming our passengers to our newly renovated areas in December,” concludes Mr. Westher Andersen.
