After clearing security, the waiting area for boarding offered nice views and a coffee station (for a fee).


There is only one boarding gate at the airport.

The meal consisted of a chicken salad with knäcke bread. It was okay but nothing special.

I had an apple juice and a berry white chocolate muffin as well.


Wifi was advertised although there was never a connection for the several times I tried. Wifi is free for Diamond and Gold Eurobonus members.


Landing in Oslo

Around 5:20pm, the captain gave us some flight updates including the weather in Oslo which is 18 degrees, a bit of turbulence on the way and that we would be landing in 20 minutes. We eventually landed at 5:36pm.

Landing in Oslo

We parked in a remote stand sadly so we had to take a bus to the terminal.


A short flight with SAS Plus within Europe is very basic: you get economy class seat and the only difference is that you get a free meal onboard, unlike economy class passengers who only get free coffee and tea. The crew on this flight were friendly, although wifi was not available, and even if it was available, I would have to pay for it as a SAS Plus passenger. Parking in a remote stand in Oslo was also not ideal. Still, it was a nice flight.
