Flight to Ilulissat,Greenland

It takes three hours to fly from Keflavik Airport to Ilulissat. Our small Air Greenland Dash 8 airplane accommodates 37 passengers. Although seats are assigned on the boarding pass, we were told that it is free seating on a first come first serve basis. Keep that in mind if you want to sit at the window. The first row next to the cabin door is reserved for the flight attendant.
