SAS to Increase Flights to Faroe Islands

SAS has confirmed that during the winter season it will increase flights to the Faroe Islands.

From 27 October 2019, SAS will operate with six flights per week between Denmark and the Faroes, equivalent to a capacity increase of 41% compared to last winter.

During peak season, there are nine weekly flights on the route, and SAS offers more than 125,000 seats between Vgar Airport and Copenhagen Airport annually.

Weve experienced great interest for the Faroe Islands, so once again well be increasing our offering on the route, said Johan Laurberg Lund Kofoed, Network Manager, SAS. The Faroe Islands are an unique, attractive destination, which tourists from all over the world are looking to experience, and there are now more opportunities, just as the Faroese people can also use our extensive route network to access Europe and the rest of the world. The departure times to and from the Islands have also been adjusted to ensure good flight connections out of Copenhagen.

Since March, SAS has been operating the RNP (Required Navigation Performance) landing system on flights to the Faroes.

The Faroe Islands can be a difficult place to fly to, but with access to equipment such as RNP which makes it easier to take off and land in weather conditions such as dense fog, we have a really strong product on the route and the same opportunity as our competitors. In the summer season we had 11 instances, in which RNP was crucial for us to be able to land, said Johan Laurberg Lund Kofoed.

SAS operates the route with the Airbus A320neo aircraft.
