Greenland Express suspends operations after just three months

Startup carrier Greenland Express has suspended flights after just three months of operation, but is aiming to re-launch in the future with a different aircraft type. The airline started services in June using a Fokker 100 on a three-year wet-lease from Dutch ACMI provider Denim Air, which operated the aircraft on its behalf.

“It is with deep regret we have to announce that Greenland Express Air has halted all flight operations in our schedule with immediate effect. We expect this halt to be temporary. However, at this time we are not able to announce an exact date for starting flight operations again,” said Greenland Express via social media on September 18th. The airline added that it would refund any unused tickets.

Greenland Express founder Gert Brask stated that the suspension of services is “a planned time out” to switch from Fokker 100 to Airbus A320 operations.
“This is to change our aircraft, as well as our booking platform etc. We planned this for some time and took the decision on September 18th, so only very few people were affected,” he said. The carrier originally planned to launch with Airbus A319s or A320s, but earlier this year it switched focus to the Embraer E-190 before finally settling on the Fokker 100.
