Air Greenland has a sponsorship policy to contribute to projects that benefit our company and the Greenlandic community. We seek to contribute to sustainable tourism, where local experience is a significant factor.

We play a crucial role in the Greenlandic infrastructure, and that role in society is both a great honor and a great responsibility. Historically, Air Greenland has contributed - not only to maintaining the cohesion of society - but also to a large number of projects and socially beneficial purposes in Greenland. We are really proud of that. A prerequisite for the sponsorships we give is that what we engage in creates value for both Air Greenland and the Greenlandic community. That is why we have chosen to enter into more and larger long-term sponsorship agreements.

To ensure that as many people as possible benefit from Air Greenland's sponsorships, we have chosen to enter into more and larger permanent cooperation agreements with unions, associations and cultural institutions in Greenland. You can read more about the agreements that have already been entered into below.
