Airlines and destinations[edit]

Air Greenland (settlement flights) Nuussuaq, Upernavik[2]

Air Greenland operates government contract flights to villages in the Upernavik area. These mostly cargo flights are not featured in the timetable,[2] although they can be pre-booked.[3] 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.
