Could some more routes be possibly profitable? Say from YYZ? As well I could see more routes expanding tourism and business in Greenland....
|Quoting Prebennorholm (Reply 6):|
Most tourism in Greenland is on cruise ships. They have their own on board support. But that is also limited. And expensive. It is very difficult and dangerous water. You have to stay many miles clear of large icebergs
|Quoting Nomadic (Reply 8):|
This is a very ironic post. I am an officer on a cruise ship and as I write this we are in fog just off Prins Crhistian Sund, Greenland, on our way to Qaqortoq tomorrow. We are having a slow time of it, avoiding the ice.
We were in Nuuk several weeks ago with much better weather. At that time I discussed the Air Greenland situation with local officials. Loads are modest but they are pleased with even these results. They expect the Baltimore service to continue. A new hotel is opening soon in Nuuk and another one in Qaqortoq. The government is working very hard to attract more tourism and not just from cruise passengers. They are actively looking for additional carriers to offer seasonal service form North America. I wish them all the best. This is a beautiful place!

Because it is not American.
Are you indicating the simplicity due to citizenship? I dont really understand your answer what so ever.

Many people in the US have the unfortunate viewpoint that "foreign = bad".

I thought FirstAir 7F used to fly from YFB ( Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada) to Nuuk, Greenland (GOH). It might have even been a code share with Air Greenland. Can't remember details.
