Unfortunately, due to the situation with COVID-19, Air Greenland cannot meet any new sponsorships in 2020 or 2021.
We wish you the best of luck with the planned activity and hope that it can be implemented without the support of Air Greenland.
We have fixed cooperation agreements with Visit Greenland (Greenland’s Tourism Board), which works with the same aim as Air Greenland, namely to bring more tourists to Greenland. We cooperate on, among other things, joint PR efforts for the purposes of creating international awareness of Greenland as a holiday destination. We are also cooperating on a joint newsletter targeted at international markets, which falls in line with our business goals and it benefits Greenlandic society and the tourism industry.
If you want sponsored tickets in connection with press & media coverage or other journalistic content about Greenland, then we have chosen to collaborate with Visit Greenland, which you contact here.
Corporate Social Responsibility
The Foundation for Entrepreneurship, FFE Kalaallit Nunaat
Air Greenland has extended our sponsorship agreement with the Foundation for Entrepreneurship by another 2 years.
The Foundation for Entrepreneurship is the central national knowledge center and focal point for the development of entrepreneurship in teaching at all levels of education. This supports our CSR efforts in education in Greenland very well.
We sponsor trips for students and teachers in primary school because we want to make a difference at that level.
Therefore, until 2021, all CSR funds will go to the Foundation for Entrepreneurship.

As the main sponsor of the Artic Circle Race, we are really proud to help promote volunteerism and develop talents that can put Greenland on the map in international contexts. We also support, via Ilik, grassroots sports in Greenland, because the sport works with some healthy values and focuses on especially young people. Therefore, sports and sports are well connected with our CSR policy, which focuses on the development and education of young people.
Arctic Circle Race
We have been a sponsor of the Arctic Circle Race since 1997, when the cross-country race took place for the first time. Together with the organizers of Sisimiut, we bring the runners safely to the city, just as we solve various practical tasks.
The race is unfortunately canceled in 2021 due to Covid-19.
