This was a charter flight as part of package with folkeferie.dk to Malta. Really good experience. In-flight service seems to be sourced from Thomas Cook. Staff friendly and service minded. Selection of drinks and snacks was good. The pre-paid food was simple, but quality not bad with an acceptable price-value ratio. The next time I would probably buy my food...

We had a short flight from Edinburgh to the Faroe islands, and then again from Faroes to Bergen, Norway. Both flights were on time - always a bonus. 2 short flights, only 1 hour each, but we were served a cold drink and 2 hot drinks in that time. Some airlines struggle to serve one drink, and then charge an...

Atlantic Airways is the Faroese national carrier, and one of the only ways to get to the Faroe Islands. We flew roundtrip from Reykjavik's city airport (which is small and terrible) to Vagar Airport in the Faroes (which is spacious and lovely). The flight was good, on a clean A319 jet, and reasonably priced.

Efficient, friendly cabin crew, adequate leg room, clean, modern aircraft (Airbus 319), flight deck announcements difficult to understand, turbulent final approach at Vagar due to severe wind shear over the adjacent hill but handled expertly with no go around needed. Had to queue outside in the drizzle and wind on arrival due to very small arrivals hall queue area for...

At last an airline that included a drink in the ticket fare. A little generosity creates a huge amount of goodwill. Check in at Edinburgh was very busy as there is no facility to drop off bags early - a nuisance when in transit with a long stopover.

A quick and smooth check in and boarding. The seat and space for leg were ok. The entertainment system and the range of offers were good. The staff were service minded. BUT we were seated at one the second row back in the flight and the female staff were VERY talkative and laughing load like teenagers in their area behind...

I recently flew with Atlantic Airways from Reykjavik to Vágar and vice versa. Overall the flights were very comfortable and pleasant. There was a good service onboard, legroom is satisfactory and the seats are rather comfortable. The only minus is that there is no entertainment system but in a short flight like this it really doesn´t matter. The flights were...
