The day after the new airport extension opened, 100.000 passengers flew in and out of the airport in one day. This is a record number and is also a satisfying test of the logistics and other important aspects of the airport functions.
The airport extension officially opened on 27 April, presenting itself as one unified piece of architecture. The airport was designed by a large team of architects and consultants, with Nordic office of architecture and Narud Stokke Wiig (NSW) as the only architects – from the competition stage until completion.
