More food outlets after Passport Control at Oslo Airport

Expanding the range of food outlets after Passport Control at Oslo Airport Gardermoen

For passengers travelling to countries outside the Schengen Area, Avinor will be opening a new food outlet concept which offers an international, varied range of food at Oslo Airport.

“After fierce competition involving several bidders, it is with pleasure that we are able to announce that the new food outlet for passengers travelling to countries outside Schengen will be the Food Truck Festival.

HMSHost-Umoe F&B Company AS submitted the most attractive bid, and we are sure that travellers will quickly become as convinced of this as we are”, said Torgeir Kjos Sørensen, Commercial Director at Avinor Oslo Airport.

“We are extremely proud to introduce the ‘Food Truck Festival’ at Oslo Airport. The concept has been inspired by street food markets all over the world, including Norway.

This is a new way of presenting and experiencing food and drink in the terminal, and we believe that this will add value to people’s overall experience in Oslo Airport.

We want to give people on the move a reason to spend more time in the airport before a flight – and a concept like the Food Truck Festival could make all the difference.

We are delighted that Avinor has chosen us to develop such an innovative and exciting concept”, said Per Christensen, General Manager for HMSHost-Umoe F&B Company.

Travelers to countries outside the Schengen Area have to go through Passport Control to get to their gate, which means that they cannot enjoy the rest of the airport’s outlets once they have gone through Passport Control.

Food Truck Festival

In the past, there has not been enough space to provide more than a limited food outlet. However, this area was expanded in April, and more facilities are now under construction.

“The Food Truck Festival will bring something new and exciting to Oslo Airport that we have not seen there before.

With its international nature, this concept is ideal for the non-Schengen Area, and will provide an excellent facility for the increasing number of travellers to and from these countries”, concluded Kjos Sørensen.

The Food Truck Festival is planned to open in November 2017.
