Rent a car at Stavanger Airport and you are 14km from Stavanger, a city and municipality in Rogaland county, Norway. Norway's third-busiest airport, Stavanger serves with both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopter traffic for the offshore North Sea oil installations. Furthermore, the Royal Norwegian Air Force flies Westland Sea King search and rescue helicopters from Sola Air Station.
The airport serves more than 4 million customers annually, with five airlines operating domestic flights to nine destinations and 11 airlines providing international flights to 37 destinations. Two helicopter companies operate out of Sola. The busiest route is Sola-Oslo Gardermoen, with about 28 daily flights.
Located on the Stavanger Peninsula in Southwest Norway, Stavanger was established in 1125, with the construction of Stavanger Cathedral. The centre is largely composed of 18th- and 19th-century wooden houses, which are protected as part of the city's cultural heritage. Stavanger is the center of Norway's oil industry and one of Europe's energy capitals.
