Faroe Islands’ Vagar Airport set for record-breaking year

Vagar Airport in the Faroe Islands has welcomed 164,486 passengers so far in 2015, a 10% increase compared to the same period in 2014. This includes 40,978 passengers for July 2015 – 4,000 more than the same month the previous year.

The airport’s growth has been attributed to the extended runway and new terminal, which has led to increases in duty free sales, lower airport fees and more incentive schemes. The airport has seen growth on all routes, especially Denmark with 8%, Bergen in Norway with 25%, Reykjavik in Iceland with 10%, and the UK with 18%.

Jákup Sverri Kass, CEO of Vagar Airport, said, “Atlantic Airways is doing a good job, and together with the Faroese tourism industry and Visit Faroe Islands, we see that more tourists than ever before are coming via our airport. The increase is not only from Scandinavia, but passengers from the likes of Germany, Holland and France are also growing in numbers.”
