The training of the first air traffic controllers under the auspices of Mittarfeqarfiit and Isavia is part of a larger agreement that also includes the operation of air traffic control in Kangerlussuaq.
The goal is that Greeneland Airports in a few years will have the first self-educated, native controllers, thus filling posts with resident specialists. In connection with future airport expansions, Greenland will thus be well equipped to occupy central positions with resident specialists.
For the new Greenlandic air traffic controller there is job guarantee and an education that is internationally recognized and can be used at all airports in the world.
Greenland Airport Authority wishes the two traffic controllers congratulations on their approval for the program.
