Greenland, an island country that is part of the Kingdom of Denmark, is investing 5 billion DKK ($651 million) in three new airports. Four billion DKK is dedicated for Nuuk International Airport, in the capital of Greenland, and Ilulissat Airport, in the tourism center of the country. The third airport, in Qaqortoq, is located in the South of Greenland. All three airports are replacing existing ones. Greenland has a total of 13 public airports and 42 helipads, serving 56,000 inhabitants. As there are no road connections between villages, air traffic is important.
