Topic: Greenland And The Faroes: Why Not Danish Domestic?

Yesterday I flew from Copenhagen to Billund on a beautiful sunny autumn day. As I was waiting for my flight in terminal 1 I thought about why Greenland and the Faroe islands are not considered domestic destinations since they both belong to the kingdom of Denmark, and each have two seats in the Danish parlament "Folketinget".

Any thoughts?

As far as I know, Greenland and Faroe Islands are not part of the European Union. Maybe it's because of that.

Next to that they are overseas destinations. At CPH the planes bound for Greenland and the Faore Islands are better served with the facilities (jetways...) at the international part of the airport than in the domestic part.

You are quite right. Hence Faroe Islands and Greenland are ex-Schengen territory.

Greenland and The Faroe Islands are today part of the Schengen territory, as is Norway which is also not member of the European Union.

Air Greenland and Atlantic Airways operate from the international terminals in Denmark as 'overseas' flights are considered to be 'international'. This arrangement has been in place for many, many years. Before the Schengen, passengers of Danish origin (Kingdom of Denmark) travelling to Greenland and The Faroe Islands v.v. was never requested to show their passport at Danish airports.
