Since 2003, commuter trips by air have increased significantly more than other work-related air traffic. The oil industry is the driver in this market and accounts for half of the growth in the commuting traffic by air during the last 10 years. As a result, there is considerable commuting into municipalities with a high level of oil industry activity. When it comes to outgoing commuting, the residents of less centralised municipalities are the ones who, relatively speaking, commute most by air. Nearness to friends and family and the fact that they have grown up in the area are the reasons that are given most often for why they commute instead of moving closer to their workplace.
