Bodø’s former civil and military airport is planned to be replaced by a smaller civil airport, located 900m southwest of the existing one. Today the site is approx. 5 600 000 m2 and located in close proximity to the city centre. An area of 2 200 000 m2 will be used for the civil airport development. The remaining 3 400 000 m2 – the same size as the current city centre – is dedicated to expanding the existing city centre and will include residential and business areas, as well as a logistic hub (flight, railway, shipping) close to the airport. The planned multifunctional urban area, known as NyBy, will be developed within the next 60 to 80 years.
