Information about Icelandair flights to Greenland

Our flights between Iceland and Greenland are operated on De Havilland Canada (DHC) aircraft, and due to their smaller size, the service on board is limited compared to that on board the larger Boeing aircraft that connect Iceland with Europe and North America.

We have a selection of options in terms of classes of service on flights from Iceland to Greenland.

Baggage allowances for Greenland flights are not the same as for international flights connecting Iceland with Europe and North America. If you are connecting on flights to Greenland, check the baggage allowance. Also note that there are some restrictions to hand luggage due to smaller overhead compartments.
