The only way to travel to Longyearbyen is by plane from either Oslo or Tromsø in Norway.  There are only a few flights per day to and from Longyearbyen each day, hence it is essential to book your flight early.  The airport code for Longyearbyen is LYR, and the airlines serving the airport are SAS or Norwegian.  The airport is just a few kilometres from the settlement and there are shuttle buses serving all arriving and departing flights.

Svalbard is not part of the Schengen area, so everyone travelling to Svalbard must bring their passport.  There are no visa requirements when travelling to Svalbard, but note that the only way to get to Svalbard is via Norway.  Please check if you need a visa to enter Norway.
