East Greenland: flights to Scoresbysund

Scheduled flights to Constable Point, the little airfield near the settlement Ittoqqortoormiit (Scoresbysund) in northern East Greenland, will be more complicated and expensive in the future. The Greenlandic government has decided to terminate the contract for the triangle flight between Reykjavik (Iceland), Kulusuk (near Ammassalik, southern East Greenland) and Constable Point. Instead, there will be a flight connection between Constable Point and the west coast of Greenland. Locals expect problems for the local community: more or less easy and affordable transport from Scoresbysund to Europe has been an important lifeline during recent decades. Amongst others, a significant drop of numbers in tourism is expected. The number of tourists visiting Ittoqqortoormiit is still not large, but economically important for the community.

This will also implicate changes to our trips to Scoresbysund in 2013.
