Tourists to pay more for helicopter tickets
In related news, non-Faroese residents will soon have to pay more to travel by helicopter in the country.
From 1 September, ticket prices for non-residents will triple, while prices for residents on the smaller islands will be cut in half.
The change is part of an effort to improve transport services for residents on the smaller islands, many of whom rely almost entirely on helicopter transport, according to Atlantic Airways, which runs the domestic helicopter service.
