Oslo Gardermoen airport has appointed Oyvind Hasaas as managing director.
Hasaas, who has been working in the solar-panel industry, will take up his new role in August, replacing Nic Nilsen.
The new MD says his top priority will be to bring a terminal-expansion project to completion “within the budgetary constraints”.
The airport is operated by Norwegian state-owned Avinor, which in 2013 made a net profit of Nkr 920 million ($153 million) on revenues of almost Nkr 10 billion.
Oslo airport generated an operating profit of Nkr 2.8 billion. Avinor’s other large airports made an operating profit of Nkr 1.35 billion, while a loss of Nkr 939 incurred by its small and regional gateways.
