Photo by @ciriljazbec Kangerlussuaq Airport is the international hub for Air Greenland. It is located away from the coast and hence less prone to fog and wind in comparison with other airports in Greenland. The Kangerlussuaq area has very few inhabitants, around 500, so few passengers have their origin or destination here. Most passengers change planes. The first airport was built here during the US occupation in 1941 under the name of Bluie West-8.
