Travelers will soon be able to fly nonstop from the Faroe Islands to Paris – and vice versa.
Faroese national airline Atlantic Airways announced Thursday that direct flights will begin 1 July 2019 to Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris from Vagar Airport.
The airline will provide service three times per week from 1. July to 30. September 2019 (on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) and twice a week from October until December 2019 (on Mondays and Fridays).
In recent years, Atlantic Airways has opened (summer) routes from the Faroes to Mallorca, Barcelona, Lisboa and Malta. The ambitious airline has also opened a winter route to Gran Canaria.
Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport is the largest international airport in France and the second largest in Europe.
