Niaqornat Heliport (IATA: NIQ, ICAO: BGNT) is a heliport in Niaqornat, a village on the northeastern shore of Nuussuaq Peninsula in the Qaasuitsup municipality in northwestern Greenland. The heliport is considered a helistop, and is served by Air Greenland as part of a government contract.

Airlines and destinations[edit]

Air Greenland (settlement flights) Uummannaq[2]

Air Greenland operates government contract flights to villages in the Uummannaq Fjord region. 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.
