62ºN air cafe & 62ºN kiosk: Coffee at the airport
sadly after i had done my shopping and reclaimed my VAT - I bought my coffee and cake and suddenely my flight was being called. The small amount of coffee I drank was good.
The staff are friendly, fairly good menu offering.
The flag carrier of the Faroe Islands is Atlantic Airways. This plucky airline has quite an ambitious schedule, flying from Vágar to Copenhagen several times daily. The airline also flies to destinations such as London-Stansted, Reykjavik, and Oslo.
Booking online is relatively easy, if not cheap. For English speakers, you will notice the website defaults prices to British Pounds. In order to pay in Danish Kroner, you will need to navigate the Faroese or Danish Language site. One helpful hint: "telðupostur" is Faroese for "e-mail."Related to:

I have attached the link for a page from the "TheFaroeIslands.info" website. The pages shown outline the different modes of transport on many of the islands.
Gávubúðin Prýði: Shopping at the Airport - first & last!
Located in the airport concourse, this is one of the few shops within the airport. It has friendly staff and has a wide range of hand crafted goods, knitted clothes and other items made across the Faroe Islands and the North Atlantic (especially from Iceland).
Remember to ask for your VAT free voucher.
What to pay: Up to yourselves - but always remember to request the VAT free voucher for reclaiming before you leave on your journey.
Purchases over FKR 300: Faroese Tax Free System
This is more of a general tip for all travellers to the Faroe Islands. "All non-residents of the Faroe Islands are entitled to claim back the VAT paid on purchases that are brought out of the country."
There are some rules about this - but generally the staff in shops will know what they need to do, documents to complete and how to advise you on what you should do to be able to reclaim the VAT you have paid.
At the airport contact the Customs Officer on duty, get your reclaim cheques(s) authorised - try and do this before checking you luggage inas they may wish to see the goods.
Then walk a few metres across the terminal to the information desk, prsent your approved vouchers and then the give you the actual cash. (if you travel by ferry the refund will be given on board the cruise ship.) Please note the information desk has opening hours which match arrivals and departures , thus is not always open.
