Jóhanna á Bergi, Atlantic Airways CEO, has confirmed the news that Atlantic Airways has applied for permission to operate Vágar-New York City service.

Ms. Bergi told Kringvarp Føroya that it is true that Atlantic Airways has filed for permission to fly to New York City.

The airline is now waiting for US aviation regulators to make their decision.

Ms. Berg stated that “the plan is to make a couple of flights to New York City next fall – around 4-6 flights all in all, one flight per week.”

Atlantic Airways intends to utilize an A320neo aircraft in a 180-seat configuration for the service.

The government of Denmark is expected to authorize similar services for a US carrier under the Open Skies Agreement.
