Airport Constructions in Greenland, Next Steps

Mr. Jens R Lauridsen, CEO of Kalaallit Airports Holding A/S, will review the status of the tender and the construction work at the airports in Nuuk and Ilulissat with members of the Greenland-Icelandic Chamber of Commerce at a live event on the 3rd of February at 10:30 GMT.

Kalaallit Airports, a company of the Greenlandic government, has decided to repeat the tender of the new airport in Qaqortoq, the largest town in South Greenland.

The planned construction of the airport in Qaqortoq is part of the biggest revolution in air transport in recent decades in Greenland, but construction has already begun on the extension of the runway in Nuuk and the construction of a new runway in Ilulissat, both 2,200 meters long and to be ready in autumn 2023.

Tender received last autumn were said to have all exceeded the project's financial framework. A change is made from last year's tender that, in parallel with the tender for the runway, the construction of airport buildings is also put out to tender, including the terminal and the tower.

Árni Gunnarsson, Chairman of the Greenland-Icelandic Chamber of Commerce will chair the meeting.
