The Organization of Mittarfeqarfiit
Mittarfeqarfiit is owned by the Government of Greenland and reports to the Ministry of Municipalities, Settlements, Remote Districts, Infrastructure and Housing.
The Danish Transport Authority is the authority for civilian air traffic in Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands.
We are approx 450 employees in Mittarfeqarfiit, divided between the head office, 13 airports, 43 helicopter landing sites, two hotels and other departments.
Most of the staff functions are gathered at the Mittarfeqarfiit headquarters in Nuuk: Finance, Airport Operations, Sales, Technical support, Human Resources, IT and security, and Quality.
The 13 airports, which are managed by an Airfield Manager, are organised into three groups: Medium-sized airports, small airports and gravel runway airports. In addition to these groups are the two international airports in Narsarsuaq and Kangerlussuaq.
Three of the five heliports are staffed by Air Greenland on behalf of Mittarfeqarfiit. Three heliports and two helistops are staffed by Mittarfeqarfiit.
37 helistops are staffed by KNI Pilersuisoq on behalf of Mittarfeqarfiit.
All helicopter landing sites report to one of the Airfield Managers.
The hotels in Kangerlussuaq and Narsarsuaq are managed collectively from Kangerlussuaq.
Besides our main business, airport operations, Mittarfeqarfiit has the responsibility for or operates a number of other functions in continuation of some of our airports, including energy supply, repair shops and stores.
