Description: The construction began 1997 and was opened for traffic 1999 with flights twice a week with a DASH 7 from Kangerlussuaq. Before 1999 you flew from Kangerlussuaq to Ilulissat by DASH 7 and from Ilulissat to Upernavik by a Sikorski S-61 helicopter. A trip could sometimes take a whole day because of weather conditions.
To make the airport the west side of the mountain Livets Top (Top Of Life) right of the airport had to be demolished.
