  • As part of a national programme launched by Avinor in 2006, the purpose of which is to increase airborne tourism to Norway, the Stavanger Region has invested more than NOK 45 million ($7.5m) in marketing into destinations to which Stavanger is directly connected by air. The programme was originally a three-year programme, but will be continued as a regionally financed programme for another three years.
