One of two flight companies to the Faroe Islands is Atlantic Airways. Very nice service onboard, staff members are very polite and a nice plane(lot of leg space and good comfort). The prices are O.K. u can get a flight back and forth for about 600kr. All in all, recomended

The uniforms of the stewardesses are more practical than beautiful. They could learn a lot from Qatar Airways. I know that the airline industry is under pressure on ticket prices, but they ought to be afford to hand out free coffee and tea to the passengers.

Atlantic Airways sounds like a huge company, but in fact it is a wonderful small airline from the Faroe with a great service. They have 1x A320 and 2x A319 Airplanes and two helicopters. With these few aircrafts they do an amazing job. Because I just used short range flights, I can't say something about the food. The crew is...

Very few airlines fly out to the remote Faroe Islands. Their local carrier, Atlantic Airways, offers fine Airbus 319 service, with excellent pilots (which is something given the rather peculiar approach into Vagar and the shortness of the runway). Nice service and a good en route gps.

Outstanding flight service , easily accessed at Turnhouse. Return flight just as easy, stayed at the Vagar airport hotel who managed to mess up breakfast - who’d have thought that possible ?!!! Flying over north coast of Scotland was just great.

This is the Faroe Islands state funded airline and therefore they have a good level of service and a friendly and efficient aircraft, although you need to pay for food and drink. Not the best but certainly not the worse either

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...
