An dream come true, I am flying to Greenland for a few days.
I am starting my journey in Copenhagen, flying with the Air Greenland A330-200 (Registration number: OY-GRN ) to Kangerlussuaq. Flight time about 4 hours and 20 minutes.
Kangerlussuaq is the biggest Airport in Greenland and the only Airport with connection to Europe (There are a few flights from/to Iceland – but nevermind).
From Kangerlussuaq Air Greenland is flying to Aasiaat, Ilulissat, Kulusuk, Maniitsoq, Nuuk and Sisimiut. Kangerlussuaq is also an alternate airport for many International flights from Europe to America (in case of an emergency) and is located on the west coast of Greenland.

The Ice on Greenland is up to 3km (!) thick and if they whole Ice on Greenland would melt, the sea level would rise about 7m (!).
