Only one and a quarter hours to Vagar from Edinburgh and it was a very pleasant flight. On time, luggage arrived quickly and staff were pleasant. On our return flight we were very impressed with the facilities at Vagar. Although the airport is small there is a very extensive duty free area and a good coffee shop with a gluten...

Both the flight to and from the Faroe Islands were on time and there was plenty of leg room particularly on the outbound aircraft. Although the flights are reasonably expensive there is a very generous baggage allowance (23kg) plus free soft drinks and tea/coffee are served on the short flight.

Been flying to and from the Faroe Islands a lot, and it is usually a good experience. Great service, amazing view and skilled pilots that are used to the rough weather. The complimentary in-flight meal and drinks are always the best part of the 2 hour flight, but sadly, alcohol is not free anymore

Ugh. I really wanted to give these guys a good review but after what I went through with customer service - nope - can't do it. Our recent flight from Vagar to RKV was delayed due to "technical issues". We had a flight to catch in KEF to Toronto later that day but still had 4.5 hours so initially we...

The only company that flies to the Faroe Islands but I'd happily pick them if there was a choice. All the staff were helpful and polite, the food was nice but not a big meal, it was a chicken salad wrap. The flight is only 70 minutes so not much time for more than a light meal and two trips...

Been flying with this company for many times. The service is always good and the cabin crew helpfull. Bevarages and food is for free, but that will sadly change in the near future. The leg space varies. They have three planes and one has less leg space than the other two

We had never flown this airline before and were extremely pleasantly surprised. we flew both from Reykjavik to Vagar and then onto Edinburgh. In both cases the flight arrived early at the destination. The planes were modern, clean and well kept. Cabin service was excellent. Even though this was an economy and relatively short flight - in both instances we...

One of the few remaining airlines that has a full in-flight service free of charge on short haul flights! Friendly staff, professional handling and the connection at FAE has been uncomplicated und on-time (admittedly, it's just a small base). Seat spacing was O.K. and even special seat allocation request has been dealt with on check-in. There are no extra charges...

I had a dream...really since I was young to visit Faroe Islands and last year that dream came true. I simply decided to go, finally and it was worth it in every respect. I discovered among so many beautiful things in these islands this Faroese airline Atlantic Airways which also offered the very best prices of return tickets. I was...
