Norway is off the map of intercontinental flights. It's a hard pill to swallow for self-conscious Norwegians. But it's a fact, this is the ultimate European periphery. At the time of writing (Nov 04) there are only these flights from beyond Europe:
- Pakistan International Airlines to/from Islamabad.
- Continental Airlines to/from Newark (New Jersey/New York). SAS discontinued their nice and homely morning flight and the route was taken over by Continental.
- Iran Air to/from Teheran via Larnaca.
In addition there are charter flights to several intercontinental destinations, but these rarely figure on the dashboard of travel agents when you ask for an A to B ticket. You can still buy a seat on some charter flights without taking the whole package, though.

For all other intercontinental travel we need to travel via a hub depending on the chosen ticket/airline: Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Paris, London, Brussels, Zurich etc. Most convenient (I think) is Copenhagen, 50 minutes away from Oslo, it's an efficient airport.

Of good connections via the hubs, I'd like to mention Thai or SAS from Copenhagen or Stockholm to Bangkok, SAS via Copenhagen to China and Tokyo, Finnair to the Far East via Helsinki, via Paris, Frankfurt or London to Africa, via Amsterdam or London to Latin America.
