Gardermoen Airport (OSL), about 45 km (28 mi) north of Oslo, is the major entry point for most visitors. Most flights from North America have at least one connection, though Continental is the exception with direct flights from New York. American Airlines flies via London and Brussels; Finnair connects through Helsinki; Iceland Air flies via Reykjavík. Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS), partnering with United, has flights via Copenhagen and Stockholm. A flight from New York to Oslo takes about eight hours.
Within Norway, Norwegian, SAS and Widerøe connect many of the cities by regular flights. SAS and low-cost airline Norwegian also serve many destinations in Europe, while Widerøe also has flights to a handful of destinations in Sweden, Denmark and the United Kingdom.
