    <p>MURDO MORRISON / KANGERLUSSUAQ, GREENLAND</p> <p>Greenlanders are out to change international misconceptions about their gateway airport </p> <p>An abandoned US air base in one of the world's bleakest locations, with few facilities and likely to be fog-bound, snowed-in or battered by Arctic gales. That is the erroneous image many airlines have of Greenland's main airport, Kangerlussuaq, according to Palle Luckow Friis, its air traffic control manager. It is why they opt instead, he says, for what they regard as the more civilised North Atlantic havens of Canada's maritime provinces or Iceland's Keflavic for their extended-range twinjet operations (ETOPS) alternates. "They think we're all a bit primitive up here," he adds. </p> <p>But it is a view Luckow Friis is keen to alter. Greenland's airport authority has launched a publicity drive to convince more airlines of the advantages offered at the airport, better known by its Danish name of S&oslash;ndre Str&oslash;mfjord or S&oslahttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Arctic-refuge-140219/

    <p>In a country with no roads linking towns and villages, air transport is the only alternative to long journeys by dog-sled or boat. </p> <p>The country's flag carrier, Greenlandair, provides the means of getting from one settlement to another, although its high fares - up to $600 for a 1h flight on a de Havilland Dash 7 - means air travel is almost exclusively the preserve of business people and professionals. </p> <p>In the past few years, the country has revolutionised its air-transport infrastructure by building six regional airports on its west coast (where virtually all 55,000 Greenlanders live). They have 800m (2,600ft) runways, which are capable of handling short take-off and landing Dash 7s. Previously, these settlements were mainly served by helicopter, although with a limit of a 1.5t payload, and Greenland's temperamental coastal weather meant helicopters were frequently unable to take off or land. </p> <p>Building each airport cost an average of $20 million, and many wehttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/New-airports-new-connections-140213/
