Nuuk is the fast-growing capital of Greenland. Despite the limited population, it has a long history. Nuuk was first occupied by ancient Paleo-Eskimo people as far back as 2200 BC. During the 1950’s, the population of Greenland boomed when Denmark began to modernize the country. Presently, Nuuk is populated by both Inuits and Danes, and over a third of Greenland’s total population lives in the Nuuk Greater Metropolitan area.
As the largest city in Greenland, Nuuk provides regular flights to the rest of the country via Air Greenland. Air Iceland also operates a route between Reykjavik Domestic Airport and Nuuk during the summer and winter months. Air Greenland operates between Keflavik International Airport and Nuuk from mid-March to the end of October.
The airport was constructed to serve the largest town in Greenland, yet with space constraints in a mountainous area and difficult weather. While this makes it difficult to serve large airliners or flights reaching Denmark, this airport offers a unique and challenging approach with exciting views of the mountainous city Nuuk, below the glorious Northern Lights.
One of the most popular routes to Nuuk (BGGH) is via Reykjavik-Keflavik (BIKF) airport, operated by both Air Greenland and Air Iceland.
Additionally, Air Greenland operates flights between Nuuk and Aasiaat (BGAA), Ilulissat (BGJN), Kangerlussuaq (BGSF), Kulusuk (BGKK), Maniitsoq (BGMQ), Nerlerit Inaat (BGCO), Paamiut (BGPT), Sisimiut (BGSS) and Iqaluit (CYFB) in the Canadian territory of Nunavut.

“Is it worth what Steam is selling it for? YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. Oh lord yes.
I don’t notice a drop in frames, the graphics are nice on the ground and in the air.
The airport itself fun to fly in and out of. (If you have a bit of YOLO in you, you can “safely” take-off and land up to a CRJ-700 at this airport.) Not a realistic plane to fly to this airport but let’s face it, we have all considered landing a 747 on an aircraft carrier in the game.
In all seriousness, this add-on is 100% worth it. I say most add-ons would be nicer if they were cheaper, this one is not one of them. It’s worth it.” –✚ NGC 6210 ✚
“This is an awesome DLC with great sceneries. You can feel the cold air when flying in the magnificent fjords of Greenland. I recommend.” – Hampparipoika3
