New Tender Launched By Flytoget

A NOK 1 billion (€134 million) tender for eight new trainsets has been issued by Flytoget which is Oslo’s airport link rail operator.

The 19-minute rail service which links Gardermoen with Oslo Central Station has seen a growing demand which has to be met. Therefore, Flytoget is looking to add to its existing fleet.

A new terminal will be opened in 2017 and the airport predicts a 3% annual increase in passenger numbers in the coming years.  Flytoget has specified for the new trainsets a maximum operating speed of at least 210 km/h, this in order to keep up with the service’s current travel time.
