Møre og Romsdal fylke
Outline of air transport in Møre og Romsdal fylke:
The county of Møre and Romsdal has nearly 250.000 inhabitants. The county is a major exporting county in Norway. Key branches are fishing, fish industry and fish farming, the marine sector (shipbuilding), the mechanical industry, and the production of furniture.
Because of long travelling distances and the lack of railway connections, air transport is crucial for connecting the county to central parts of Norway. Statistically, inhabitants in Møre and Romsdal travel more by plane than the Norwegian average. Møre and Romsdal has four airports. Three of them are included in the Seaplane project. All four airports are owned and run by Avinor AS, not the regional authorities for the county. Avinor is a state-owned limited company and owns 46 airports in Norway.
