Annual reports

The Air Greenland Group secured a profit for 2014 of DKK 80,7 million before taxes. The net profit after taxes amounted to DKK 52,7million. The Board considers the annual result satisfactory. As expected, the market for route traffic in 2014 did not show any growth which is why Air Greenland last year focused the Company’s efforts on cost efficiency and the development of tourism. The profits achieved for 2014 were positively influenced by an increase in the activity on the charter market with the Company-owned Airbus A330-200, which normally operates the transatlantic flights.
