Atlantic Airways About Atlantic Airways

Atlantic Airways is based in Sorvagur and was founded on November 10, 1987. The company was initially part of the Danish Cimber Air, but is now 100 percent owned by the Faroese state. Atlantic Airways started its first flight on March 28, 1988. Since 1994, in addition to its international flights with four BAe 146-200s, the airline has also operated domestic flights on local helicopter routes. The helicopter service existed earlier, however, since 1984. However, it previously belonged to the local shipping company Strandfaraskip Landsins.
