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...

Getting to/from the Faroes from UK is not that simple, as on several days in the week you have to fly with SAS via Copenhagen or sometmes Oslo, and according to online searches this can also require you to have an extra overnight in Copenhagen as flights from London do not arrive early enough to connect. On days when Atlantic...

All aspects of the flight were very good except for the late opening of check in. I definitely recommend the airline however they need to improve the information on their website regarding check in.

We were very lucky that our holiday charter company decided to use Atlantic Airways as their choice this year. I had read that Atlantic had all new aircraft and our aircraft was very new even smelt new. There was good leg room and even a clip on the back of the seat in front to mount an I Pad, super....
