The most feasible way to get to and travel within Greenland is by aircraft.

Kangerlussuaq is the main hub for all international and domestic flights. Air Greenland operates the scheduled domestic fixed-wing and helicopters flights connecting a total of 22 airports and heliports.

Charter flights are available using either Air Alpha or Air Greenland.

See air transportation details at Greenland Airport Authority.

Please note, that Greenland is part of the Schengen Agreement about the free mobility of people across borders and special rules concerning passport and customs control therefore apply.

Cargo can be sent between Greenland and Denmark by Air Greenland or by sea route.
