Air Greenland operates government contract flights to villages in the Tasiilaq regions. These mostly cargo flights are not featured in the timetable,[7] although they can be pre-booked.[8] Departure times for these flights as specified during booking are by definition approximate, with the settlement service optimized on the fly depending on local demand for a given day.
