The history of this small airport is unique and so is the program itself:
Vagar Airport was originally a military installation, built during World War II. In the early 1960's the need and popular demand in the Faroes for civil aviation grew to the point of making a modernization of the runway a necessity to facilitate passenger traffic.
1st July 1963 Vagar Airport became operational for civil aviation and the first carrier landed on the 17th July 1963. During the early years only propeller aircraft were implemented. Since 1977 jet aircraft too have serviced the routes to the airport. Since 1963, when regular civil aviation began, continuous changes and improvements have been undertaken as to keep the airport abreast of aviation developments. Consequently today you may use a modern and advanced airport when traveling to and from the Faroes.
From 1963 Danish Civil Aviation Administration has operated the airport. Vagar Airport is made for short distant airplanes such like the BAe 146-200, B737-400, Socata Trinidad TB20, Socata TMB700, Saab 2000 and now the Airbus A319 which came as a test flight direct from the Airbus factory.
Many pilots use Vagar Airport when they fly from: England, Norway, Denmark to Iceland or Greenland, etc. for private flights. Atlantic Airways and Faeroe Jet are the commercial airlines of Vagar Airport. The destinations for Atlantic Airways and Faeroe Jet from Vagar is: Billund (DK) Copenhagen (DK) Aalborg (DK) Reykjavik (IS) Stavanger (NO) and others.
