Next year, SAS will launch flights between its Copenhagen hub and Vágar in the Faroe Islands. With the introduction of these flights it will mark the end of the monopoly Atlantic Airways has had on the route for almost 12 years.
The flights will start in March and will operate daily using their Airbus A319s and A320s. The flights will offer passengers many connections to SAS’s large route network From Copenhagen.
“We believe that there is a market, and many of our customers have requested flights to the Faroe Islands. SAS is a Scandinavian company, which relies heavily on the Scandinavian and domestic market,” SAS Chief Operating Officer (COO) Lars Sandahl Sørensen told the Check-in.dk portal.
