|Air Greenland inaugurates new route to Iqaluit - UPDATED|
Air Greenland has begun a new connection between Nuuk, Greenland and Iqaluit. The summer-only service gives Nunavut residents and tourists a chance to make a quick connection between the neighbouring capitals. The flights run Mondays and Fridays, starting June 15, 2012. The service was successful enough to warrant a second season in the summer of 2013. Despite being relatively close together, it has been years since there were direct scheduled flights between Canada and Greenland.
Air Greenland is flying the route with a Bombardier DASH 8. Flying time is estimated to be about 1 hour and 45 minutes. That's a lot quicker than a couple of days - flying to southern Canada, on to Copenhagen and up to Nuuk, which is how that trip is done when these direct flights aren't available. Tickets can be booked with First Air.
