Covid-19 – Latest update
June 19th, 2020
Re-opening of travel to Greenland from June 15
Covid-19: Travel from Denmark to Greenland
Travel to Greenland will open gradually. The opening of the country will take place in three phases. The first phase started on June 15. From that day, a maximum of 600 passengers is allowed to travel into Greenland per week. There will still be some requirements when traveling to Greenland after June 15, including a negative corona test on departure from Denmark and quarantining upon arrival in Greenland.
It has not yet been decided when phases 2 and 3 will take effect.
For non-Danish citizens
For travelers from other countries, it will only be possible to travel to Greenland when Denmark (and Iceland) open for entry. We do not know when this is. We are in contact with everyone who has purchased package holidays with us this summer.
Covid-19: SURGICAL MASKS ON ATLANTIC FLIGHTS
Due to Danish government requirements, travelers on the Atlantic route between Kangerlussuaq and Copenhagen return trips are required to wear their own masks covering both nose and mouth. This is required from June 15, and children under the age of 6 are exempt.
In Copenhagen: The mask must be worn when you show up at the airport and until you leave Norsaq in Kangerlussuaq.
In Kangerlussuaq: The mask must be worn when boarding the plane and until you leave Copenhagen Airport.
The mask can be removed when eating. It is recommended that you put on a new, unused mask after eating.
In Greenland, you can buy masks in the grocery stores Pilersuisoq, Pisiffik, and Brugsen as well as several other shops.
The mask orders do not apply to travelers on Air Greenland’s domestic routes, but we recommend all our passengers to purchase a mask before departure.
You can call us on +45 33 13 10 11 between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM CET.
If you have purchased a tour or a flight with us in the period where flights between Denmark and Greenland are suspended, we will contact you for a change of dates or a refund of your tickets.
