Kristiansand Airport Reviews

Kristiansand Airport, Kjevik (Norwegian: Kristiansand lufthavn, Kjevik; IATA: KRS, ICAO: ENCN) is situated 4.3 NM (8.0 km; 4.9 mi) northeast of the city Kristiansand, Vest-Agder in southern Norway, located 16 km (9.9 mi) from the city centre. The airport serves the Agder district with domestic and international flights. In 2008 the airport had 915,092 passengers. The airport is operated by Avinor.

The Royal Norwegian Air Force has a training centre at the airport.

The Kristiansand Airport’s 2,000-metre (6,562 ft) runway has been defined as 1,840 metres (6,037 ft) and lacks a safety area at the southern end. The airport is installing an engineered-materials arrestor system, a method of stopping aircraft overshooting the runway, which, it is thought, might allow future safety approvals without extending the runway.

A new control tower (the Kristiansand Airport currently operates video cameras to control the northern end of the runway) and a larger two-storey terminal have also been proposed. Bus service to Kristiansand, Lillesand, Grimstad, Arendal and Tveit is available.
