The flights will be operated by a modern Airbus A320 aircraft and make the trip in just over two hours.

TÓRSHAVN, FAROE ISLANDS – This summer, Atlantic Airways will launch the first-ever nonstop service between London Gatwick Airport (LGW) and Vagar Airport (FAE) in the Faroe Islands. Twice-weekly flights will operate every Tuesday and Saturday from June 1 through August 31, 2024.

The new route gives Londoners a convenient way to reach the North Atlantic archipelago located halfway between Iceland and Norway.

We are thrilled to add London as our second destination in the UK,” said Atlantic Airways CEO Jóhanna á Bergi. “This new nonstop service makes visiting our beautiful islands quicker and easier than ever for UK travelers.”

Until now, reaching the Faroe Islands from London required taking at least two flights and stopping in cities like Copenhagen or Edinburgh. Atlantic Airways already operates direct flights between the Faroe Islands and Edinburgh.

Known for dramatic landscapes, grass-roofed villages, and abundant wildlife, the Faroe Islands have recently attracted more tourists following their starring role in the James Bond film No Time to Die. The new flights make it simpler for Londoners to experience top attractions like Múlafossur Waterfall, Trælanípan rock formation, and the sea cliffs at Vestmanna.
