Norway's Ministry of Transport released (14-Apr-2013) its national transportation plan for 2014-2013 on 12-Apr-2013. The Ministry said it aims to ensure a safe and efficient air transportation network for both short and long trips. The Ministry said the country's decentralised airport structure provides good access to air transport in the country. The Ministry said a report on Avinor is being developed and the Norwegian Government will come back with more clarification on the Avinor framework at a later stage. The report also discussed the construction of a new terminal, terminal 2, at Oslo Gardermoen Airport to strengthen the airport's importance as a hub for Norway. In phase one the airport is expected to increase capacity from 21 million to 28 million passengers p/a and to 35 million passengers p/a in phase two. Phase one is expected to be competed in 2Q2017 at a cost of NOK12.5 billion (EUR1.67 billion) followed by phase two in 2019 at a cost of NOK2 billion (EUR266.9 million).
