Faroe Islands by plane

Faroe Islands by plane

  • Vága floghavn . The Faroe Islands are served by one airport. The airport is on the island of Vágar. The location was chosen by the British during the occupation of the islands during World War II. About 180,000 passengers fly to and from the airport every year. Vágar is connected to the largest island Streymoy (on which the capital Tórshavn is situated) by a sub-sea tunnel. A bridge connects Eysturoy to Streymoy. There are buses to Torshavn and other major cities; the schedules are aligned (more or less) with the arrival of all flights. The price to Tórshavn is (summer 2006) around €14. You might need to change buses if you are going to Klaksvik. Check the schedule with the driver, there might be a lot of waiting time.
  • Atlantic Airways , connects the Faroes with a couple of chosen cities in Scandinavia. The Faroes are accessible by regular commercial air service from Copenhagen (3 times a day), Oslo and Stavanger (twice a week in the summer time) and Reykjavík (twice a week). It also flies to London. It is the only airline with a scheduled service to the Faroes.
  • Be aware that summer fog is a problem when flying to the Faroes in the summer months. The planes cannot land in this weather and will often divert to Iceland where you will stay until the weather clears. This also means that flights out of the Faroes can be disrupted too. Allow yourself a few days either side of your visit to the Faroes in case of flight delays.
