Atlantic Airways, the national airline of the Faroe Islands, will operate direct Faroe Islands flights to Paris starting July 2019. The scheduled service will commence on Monday 1 July with three weekly flight (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) until the end of September, followed by two weekly flights (Monday and Friday) until Christmas.
Direct flights from Paris Charles De Gaulle, coupled with an interline cooperation between Atlantic Airways and Air France, will greatly increase the accessibility of the Faroe Islands to travellers from all over the world who would like to experience the Faroe Islands as a travel destination.
Jóhanna á Bergi, CEO of Atlantic Airways, says: “We are very excited about this new route from Paris as it will connect the Faroe Islands to one of the biggest hubs in Europe and will give travellers from all over the world a new and much bigger gateway to our beautiful islands. With flights from Charles De Gaulle to the Faroe Islands amongst our scheduled routes, we are further connecting the Faroe Islands to the world, and the world to the Faroe Islands.”

Atlantic Airways has also applied for an air carrier permit to operate commercial services to the US, with New York City being the preferred destination. If the permit is granted, Atlantic Airways will start flying directly to New York City once a week for four to six weeks during autumn 2019.
Atlantic Airways currently operates routes to five destinations year round (Copenhagen, Billund, Edinburgh, Reykjavik and Bergen) and seasonal flights to Barcelona, Mallorca and Gran Canaria.
