Greenland from the air

The immense distances involved make air transport in Greenland an essential part of the economy. The two main international airports are at Kangerlussuaq in the west and Narsarsuaq in the south, with a smaller one at Kulusuk in the east. Most of the larger settlements have airstrips. Where this is not possible, or in the case of small settlements, there are helicopter services. Internal air fares are expensive, even by Greenlandic standards.
