Traffic & Travel News

New routes will run from UK to two ‘beautiful islands’ in time for summer


share close

Customers will have more options when it comes to jetting off this year as airlines have launched new routes to the Faroe Islands and Guernsey.

Anyone looking for a last-minute Easter getaway will be able to book some flights from the UK leaving as early as tomorrow.

The Faroe Islands is a scenic group of islands that lie between Iceland and Norway. It has rocky, volcanic islands, dramatic landscapes and breathtaking waterfalls.

Atlantic Airways will run more flights from the UK to the destination for the summer season this year, beginning on June 1.

Faroe Islands

More flights will run to the Faroe Islands


Britons can fly direct from London Gatwick to Vágar on new services that will run twice a week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

The summer months are the warmest on the island, although temperatures do not reach much higher than the low 10°C meaning it is not the destination for sunseekers. Tourists have plenty of time to explore as the service will run until August 31.

Those looking for a warmer getaway will be able to visit Guernsey with more frequent flights starting from tomorrow (March 31).

Aurigny is launching a service between London City Airport and Guernsey twice a day, with a break from service on Saturdays.

Guernsey is a great place if looking to enjoy the outdoors. It has beautiful beaches to lounge at and cliffs to explore.

CEO at Aurigny Nico Bezuidenhout said: “Guernsey is a tourist destination and an International Finance Centre.

“Many businesses on our beautiful island work closely with colleagues and clients in London and direct flights to London’s beating heart will also benefit anyone who wishes to explore the city’s many attractions.”

Britons in other parts of the UK can also benefit from more flights and most airlines have announced new flights they will run in 2024 and 2025.
