Travel with children
If you are travelling with small children, you will have a lot to think about and much to prepare for. To make things a little easier for you, we have collated some information that may come in handy on the journey.
All children travel free
All children under the age of 16 travel free aboard our Airport Express Trains, provided they are accompanied by an adult over the age of 18 (regardless of tickettype). Children need no ticket and will be let through the barriers at Oslo Airport by our security guards.
Prams and pushchairs
Every Airport Express Train has a carriage fitted with straps for securing prams and push-chairs. This is the rear carriage when you travel to the airport, and the front carriage when you travel from the airport. If you have a collapsible pram or pushchair that can fit into a luggage shelf, you may sit wherever you like aboard the train. The steward will assist if you have any questions.
Children travelling alone
Travelling alone, stepping out on an adventure! This is an exciting experience for a young globetrotter. Nevertheless, it is important that you, as a parent, feel your children are safe. The Ombudsman for Children recommends a 10-year age limit for children travelling on their own. Flytoget supports this recommendation, while pointing out that it is up to parents to evaluate their children’s maturity.
It is a good idea for an adult to accompany the child the first couple of times they make a journey, so that the child becomes accustomed with everything. This will also allow the parents to form an impression of whether their children feel confident enough and can manage by themselves.
If you would like to know more about how to make the journey easier for adults and children alike, we recommend that you read the story about Felix and Fiona on Oslo Airport’s website.
