A return flight ticket to one of the bigger cities in Greenland costs approx. 4500-8000 DKK. This is both from Denmark and Iceland with Air Greenland or from Iceland to Greenland with Icelandair. The prices from the two Airlines are quite similar. One would think the flights are quite expensive compared to other destinations in the world. However Greenland is in the Arctic region and the costs of running airports and heliports in these rough and untouched areas are very high compared to other destinations. There are some regions with limited accessibility at specific times of the year, such as in East Greenland and North Greenland.
Additionally, Air Greenland flights have a lot of services already included in the price. Air Greenland is a full service carrier which means you can freely carry 20 kg of luggage and 8 kg hand luggage in every flight both international and domestic. In the 4.5 hour flights between Copenhagen and Kangerlussuaq, you will also be served a free meal and beverages. There are also various options of entertainment in the entertainment system onboard the Airbus that flies this route. In the domestic flights you will be served water, coffee and tea.
Icelandair is a Hybrid airline with different options, which means that you can decide what product you would like to buy for your purpose. They have different types of tickets with Economy Standard and Economy Flex you will have 20 kg of luggage and 6 kg hand luggage included.
With Economy Light you will have to pay a fee for your checked luggage. A meal and soft drinks will also be served with Icelandair flights to and from Greenland.
