Based in Kangerlussuaq, Air Greenland performs a vast network of destinations within Greenland, plus a lifeline connection to Copenhagen using a two-class (Business and Economy) Airbus A330-200. Its red livery makes for a striking contrast with the white of snow-covered Greenland. The carrier will receive shortly a brand-new Airbus A330-800neo, being one of only four airlines in the world to have ordered the last-generation aircraft from the Toulouse manufacturer (Photo Wikimedia Commons / AgainErick)
