Faroe Islands Vagar Airport Reviews

Faroe Islands Vagar Airport also known as Vágar Airport (Faroese: Vága Floghavn, Danish: Vágar Lufthavn) (IATA: FAE, ICAO: EKVG) is the only airport in the Faroe Islands, a self-governing territory of the Kingdom of Denmark, and is located 1 NM (1.9 km; 1.2 mi) east of Sørvágur.

Due to the Faroe Islands’ rather anomalous status, the Faroe Islands Vagar Airport is not fully subject to the rules of the European Union. It is the main operating base for Faroese national airline Atlantic Airways and, for a short period during 2006, was also the base for the low cost airline FaroeJet.

The airport was built by British Royal Engineers during World War II on the island of Vágar. The site was chosen mainly because it was hard to see from the surrounding waters and any potential German warship. The first aeroplane landed here in Autumn 1942.

A number of domestic Faroe Islands Vagar Airport can be reached from Vágar by the Atlantic Airways helicopter service. International destinations include Copenhagen, Aalborg and Billund in Denmark, Reykjavík in Iceland, Aberdeen and London in the United Kingdom, Narsarsuaq in Greenland, Oslo and Stavanger in Norway and Barcelona in Spain.
