Alesund Airport transport

hi, does anyone know whether the bus from Alesund airport to the city centre runs til late.

I'm not sure what time my flight is due to arrive, but it'll be about 11pm from Oslo.

I'm staying at the First Atlantica Hotel, and am hoping to get dropped off as close as possible to the hotel.

any ideas will be appreciated.

thanks for the link, but I must admit I'm battling with it.

under the journey planner, I input a date and time for a one-way trip, departure from Alesund airport, to any one of the available destination options in Alesund, and it yields no results at all.

Here`s what I found: You can view the route for the bus, and find your hotel ("overnattingssteder")

The last flight arrives at 23:05, and the bus departs some 15 min after the arrival (bus for every flight).

First Atlantic is in the very centre, and the bus stops in front of the hotel. There is some repairs in the underwater tunnels to the airport, so during night perhaps the bus will go by ferry. Ask the driver for details.

thanks to you all for your advice and links.

just a couple more questions:

when I arrive at the airport, will I easily be able to pick up my bags, and find where the bus departs, in only 15mins?

given the limited time before the bus leaves, will I be able to pay the driver directly?

thanks again

I think the bus waits for all the passengers from the arrival.

Small & quick airport.

As long as you luggage are in the same plane as you, the bus will wait. There is normally only one arrival at one time. You pay direct to the driver.

thanks for all your comments.

I've had to change my hotel from the First Atlantica to the Scandic.

do you know whether the airport bus will stop at this hotel?

A good question, since the bus some time ago stopped the hotel-service. But good neews for you, it has started again. It is the second last stop. This article is from local media. You can see "Scandic".

You just tell the driver that u are going to Scandic. He will be very helpful. There will be a few meters to walk.
