The flag carrier of the Faroe Islands, Atlantic Airways, will offer nonstop service between London Gatwick (LGW) and Vágar (FAE). The route will operate just one time per week on Tuesdays between 23 June and 11 August 2020.
The route will operate on the following schedule on Tuesdays only:
- RC420 Vágar (FAE) 11:50 a.m. Departure ⇒ London (LGW) 2 p.m. Arrival
- RC421 London (LGW) 3:25 p.m. Departure ⇒ Vágar (FAE) 5:35 p.m. Arrival

The 801-mile journey will be operated by the carrier’s A320neo. The airline has just three aircraft in its fleet — one A319, one A320 and one A320neo — along with helicopters.
On the A320neo (OY-RCK), which will operate this London route, passengers can expect 174 seats.
In addition to this service between Gatwick and Vágar, Atlantic Airways also operates nonstop service to Edinburgh (EDI), Reykjavik (KEF), Paris (CDG), Copenhagen (CPH) and more.
Previously, Atlantic Airways operated nonstop service between Vágar and London Stansted. This summer seasonal service represents the first direct connection to London since that 2014 service.
