Please use the above transport links to learn more about Greenland's transport infrastructure.

There are no passenger ship lines that have scheduled operations between Greenland ports and other countries. (Ship-borne cargo transport to and from Greenland).

There are no railways nor any connecting roads. The most feasible way to get to 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.
