We look forward to welcoming you aboard Atlantic Airways and the Faroe Islands.

The Faroe Islands have managed the challenges of the Corona-virus very well. We have had very few cases of infection and no Corona-virus related fatalities in the Faroe Islands.

To prevent the infection from spreading on the islands the Faroese authorities require all travelers to be tested for covid-19 on arrival at Vágar Airport. Travelers are asked to quarantine until the test result is available. Usually results are ready the same evening or midday the following day at the latest.  The Faroese authorities also require all passengers arriving at Vágar airport to pay a Covid-19 tax amounting to DKK 312 pr. passenger. Atlantic Airways is tasked with collecting payment for said tax. Passengers will be sent a payment link prior to departure. If passengers do not pay via the sent payment link before departure, an additional penalty fee will be added to the Covid-19 tax. Please expect additional wait time upon arrival at the airport if payment has not been completed.

It is recommended that all travelers arriving in the Faroe Islands be tested again on Day 6 after arrival. Travelers are asked to be extra careful in the period between the first and second tests. Please read the recommendations on

Arriving in the Faroe Islands passengers can shop in our duty-free shop and pick up their bags as normal before exiting to the testing facilities. Please expect some wait time.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Passengers that have Covid-19, have Covid-19 symptoms, or are in quarantine are NOT permitted to travel with Atlantic Airways.

Facemasks are mandatory for all travelers on Atlantic Airways and while in Vágar Airport.
