Airlines and destinations

AirlinesDestinations
Air Greenland Kulusuk[7]
Air Greenland (settlement flights) Isortoq, Kuummiit, Sermiligaaq, Tiniteqilaaq[7]

Air Greenland operates government contract flights to villages in the Tasiilaq regions. These are mostly cargo flights that 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.

Future

There are political discussions on building a new airport at Tasiilaq, the major settlement in the region, and to close the Kulusuk Airport.[9]
