Outbound departures from Norway experienced an increase of 5% in the number of trips made in 2013, which was slightly lower than during 2012. The fact that the Norwegian krone depreciated somewhat against other major currencies effected the slower growth in departures in 2013. The fall in the Norwegian krone is due to a combination of various factors such as poor liquidity and weak growth in the economy of Norway. For some Norwegians, it has become more expensive to travel overseas. However, this factor makes it more attractive to travel to cheaper destinations without affecting overall departures.
