Norway is arguably one of RED’s favourite countries to visit. This time, Andy and Glenn were the lucky ones to represent our client Vanderlande in Bergen. Along the way, they found out about express security lanes, trolls and… ‘funiculars’.

Sleek and secure

In support of our client’s ‘World of Vanderlande’ campaign, we were asked to visit Bergen’s picturesque regional airport. However, there was nothing quaint about its new security lanes, as the guys discovered. They were on site to film them in action, as well as gather the usual mix of great photography and written materials.

The timing was perfect, as Bergen had only just installed the lanes prior to RED’s visit. The team was certainly in good company on site, as they were assisted by none other than the system’s inventor! His knowledge and passion was a huge asset as Andy and Glenn worked hard to capture the innovative features of the lanes.

Breathtaking views

The RED crew was lucky enough to speak to representatives from the airport, who shared the interesting background to the installation. After recently opening its new state-of-the-art terminal, Bergen Airport is now primed to welcome more visitors from America and Asia than ever before.

Outside the airport, the team was fortunate to explore the ‘Gateway to the Fjords’ further. This included a round-trip on the city’s famous funicular railway – the Fløibanen. It’s no wonder that over a million people take a similar trip each year, the views from the top are breathtaking! On a good day, it’s also possible to see trolls hiding in the nearby forests… hopefully those are just statues?

A job well done

Bergen is also home to the multicoloured – and UNESCO-listed – Bryggen. This wharf dates back centuries, and houses the Enhjørningen Fiskerestaurant (that is, the Unicorn Seafood Restaurant). The team was happily joined for dinner there by their hosts from Bergen Airport, and the group was able to toast another successful Norwegian adventure.

We’d like to offer our appreciation to our client Vanderlande, for working so hard to arrange our visit. Special thanks also go to our airport contacts for their warm Nordic hospitality.
