Bodø Airport closed on Friday morning due to wind and snowfall, with delays expected to last throughout the day.


Snow and wind in the early hours of Friday that continued into the morning led to all flights from Bodø Airport being grounded until 10am. 

Public broadcaster NRK reported at around 8:30am that several full planes were grounded with passengers on board due to the weather. 

Around ten departures from the airport were affected by 9am, the chief technical officer at Bodø Airport, Øystein Madsen, told Norwegian newswire NTB. 


“There is one departure from Norwegian, one from SAS and seven or eight from Widerøe. It is probably about 1,000 passengers,” Madsen said. 

Passengers have been asked to arrive at the airport as normal and to check the website of Norwegian airport operator Avinor

Molde airport has seen landings affected by the weather too. As a result, Norwegian has decided to divert flights from the area to Ålesund.  

“There are some delays. There is too much snow on the runway. It is the landings that are the problem right now,” airport officer Arnt Sandvik told the Norwegian newspaper VG
