Air Greenland Flights

Air Greenland is the flag carrier airline of Greenland, jointly owned by the Greenland Home Rule Government, SAS Group, and the government of Denmark. It operates a fleet of 32 aircraft, including one airliner used for transatlantic and charter flights, nine fixed-wing aircraft used for domestic operations, and 22 helicopters that help passengers from smaller communities to transfer from one place to another through the domestic airport network. The airport has plenty of operating bases, including a handful of heliports. 


Air Greenland was founded as Grønlandsfly, starting its services in the 1960s. Its first flight was with a Catalina water plane, which further improved and expanded to DHC-3 Otters as well as Sikorsky S-61 Helicopters. The majority of operations were based on helicopters until the newly established Greenland home rule began investing in a network of short take-off and landing airfields, providing and setting up a network of airports, and serving as the catalyst for bigger planes to arrive for the flag carrier. By the 1990s to 2000s, the airline acquired a Boeing 757 and an Airbus A330, allowing local communities to be connected to Copenhagen. By the turn of the century, the airline already serves international connections along with domestic charter services to compete with Icelandair.
