Oslo Gardermoen Airport (Norwegian: Oslo Lufthavn; IATA: OSL, ICAO: ENGM), is the principal airport serving Oslo, the capital of and most populous city in Norway. Oslo is also served by the low-cost Torp Airport and Rygge Airport.

More than 22 million passengers traveled through the airport in 2012, making Oslo Airport the nineteenth-busiest airport in Europe.

It has two parallel roughly north–south runways measuring 3,600 metres (11,811 ft) and 2,950 metres (9,678 ft) and 71 aircraft stands, of which 34 have jet bridges. The airport is connected to the city center by the high-speed railway Gardermoen Line served by mainline trains and Flytoget. The ground facilities are owned by Oslo Lufthavn AS, a subsidiary of the state-owned Avinor. Also at the premises is Gardermoen Air Station, operated by the Royal Norwegian Air Force.
