Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Faroe Islands Vagar Airport.

What to Expect

Faroe Islands Vagar Airport has one tiny terminal – comprised of a single gate, one shop, and a couple eateries.  All announcements, signs and even reading materials in the airport are in Faroese, the local language.  Bring your own entertainment and take in the beautiful scenery, as we aren’t able to confirm if WiFi is available.
