ABOUT KALAALLIT AIRPORTS

Our history

Kalaallit Airports consists of three companies: Kalaallit Airports Holding A/S, Kalaallit Airports International A/S and Kalaallit Airports Domestic A/S.
The Government of Greenland founded Kalaallit Airports A/S on 1st July 2016. The company’s purpose was to build, own and operate airports at Nuuk, Ilulissat and Qaqortoq.

An organisation is created

The establishment of the company enabled the establishment of a single competent and professional organisation with relevant experience, with a view to exploring the possibilities of establishing two expanded international airports at Nuuk and Ilulissat and building a North Atlantic airport at Qaqortoq.

The Danish State becomes a co-owner

In connection with the Government of Greenland entering into an agreement with the Danish State to co-finance the airports at Ilulissat and Nuuk, the Danish State became the owner of 33.3% of Kalaallit Airports International A/S. Subsequently, in February 2019, Kalaallit Airports A/S was renamed Kalaallit Airports Holding A/S.

New companies are formed

On 8th January 2019, Kalaallit Airports International A/S and Kalaallit Airports Domestic A/S were established. International A/S aims to build two international airports at Ilulissat and Nuuk, while Domestic A/S aims to build a North Atlantic airport at Qaqortoq.

KAIR Holding A/S, which is 100% owned by the Government of Greenland, together with the Danish State International A/S, is to build Nuuk and Ilulissat. In return, the Government of Greenland owns 100% of the Domestic company, which is to build Qaqortoq Airport.
