Icelandair flies from Iceland to the Faroe Islands in summer 2024
Icelandair is adding the Faroe Islands as a new point in its route network from the 2024 summer season. The airline plans to start a connection between Reykjavik Keflavik Airport and Vágar Airport (FAE) on the Faroe Islands from May to October next year. The route will be operated five to six times a week.
The Faroe Islands are located halfway between Iceland and Scotland in the North Atlantic and belong to Denmark. The archipelago consists of 18 rocky volcanic islands and is home to around 53,000 inhabitants. Icelandair expects the route to attract leisure travellers looking for tourist destinations off the beaten track.
Three scheduled airlines currently serve Vágar Airport. Atlantic Airways offers flights to seven destinations, including Copenhagen, Paris Charles de Gaulle and Reykjavik, while SAS Scandinavian Airlines serves Copenhagen and Widerøe flies from Bergen in Norway.
