STATE OF THE ART AIRCRAFT AND TECHNOLOGY

Atlantic Airways is the national airline of the Faroe Islands and has one of the newest fleets in Europe of Airbus 320 family aircraft and Leonardo AW139 helicopters.

Specially designed to operate in Faroese conditions, we are the only airline in Europe to utilize the GPS based RNP AR 0.1 technology which enables us to fly optimized flight paths reducing turbulence and greenhouse emissions. This system also allows our aircraft to maintain a higher reliability on Vágar Airport as we can land in lower visibility than our competitors.

Atlantic Airways will in the coming two years receive delivery of two new Airbus 320NEO aircraft. The new NEO aircraft are 15-20% more fuel efficient, which makes Atlantic Airways even more competitive while at the same time reducing our environmental footprint.
