Ukkusissat Heliport: Air Greenland Bell 212
|Operator||Greenland Airport Authority
|Elevation AMSL||223 ft / 68 m|
Ukkusissat Heliport (IATA: JUK, ICAO: BGUT) is a heliport in Ukkusissat, a village in the Uummannaq Fjord system in the Avannaata municipality in northwestern Greenland. The heliport is considered a helistop, and is served by Air Greenland as part of a government contract. There are no facilities at the helistop; check-in is administered in the Pilersuisoq communal store, the central point of the settlement.
On the way from Uummannaq Heliport, Air Greenland helicopters fly alongside the southern and western wall of Appat Island, to then pass above the narrow Appat Ikerat strait between Appat and the smaller Salleq Island, a high, standalone flooded mountain.
