Atlantic Airways is currently only flying between Vágar and Copenhagen three times a week, but soon another flight will be added.
– We’ve chosen to add a flight on Thursdays to our schedule in addition to our flights on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, because we see an increase in passengers aboard and want to avoid having too many passengers on the same flight, Jóhanna á Bergi, CEO of Atlantic Airways tells Kringvarp Føroya.
Under normal circumstances, Atlantic Airways would have almost 40 flights scheduled each week, and from 1 June, the number will be four.
