The new In-Flight Entertainment system is a vast improvement from the previous system available on Air Greenland. With its touch screen interface and ability to choose movies, it brings Air Greenland up to speed with other airline standards. The entertainment system has a simple and clear interface that is easy to navigate. I usually go straight to the movie section when flying, but there were also apps, games, TV, music and flight information. Passengers can choose from around 10 movies, which is around 8 more movies than what passengers could previously see. There’s a mix of brand new and old movies available.
Note that currently the In-Flight Entertainment system is only available in Business class, but will be implemented across Economy class by the year end.
Begin your journey to Greenland!
If you’re the type of person who likes to research a destination prior to arrival, then you’ll be happy to know that there is a lot of Greenland content available on the In-Flight Entertainment system! From movies about Sume, Greenland’s most significant rock band, to documentaries about dog sledding (only available in Greenlandic with Danish subtitles), and short video clips showcasing the Big Arctic Five from Visit Greenland, there’s a lot of content to digest.
Even the kids are not forgotten, with Inuit myth storytelling books, games, and colouring-in apps with motifs from Greenlandic culture. The system is easy to navigate and user friendly!
Classy Meal service
Although it is only a mid-haul flight, the meal service in Air Greenland’s Business class is on par with full-service airlines. A classy seal fur lined menu presents the three course menu. Lunch on this flight was gravad laks (cured salmon) with asparagus for starters, and sliced turkey with vegetables on cream Chanterelle sauce. I licked my fingers clean with cheese and cake for dessert – and a shot of Baileys in my coffee!
The Air Greenland cabin crew provide attentive and warm service, but they always have. The biggest change one should look forward to when flying with Air Greenland is the new In-Flight Entertainment system. It dramatically improves the quality of the flight, and for those who have the luxury of flying Business class, the Bose headphones just enhances the experience tenfold.
The internal cabin changes are minor when observed independently, but when seen from a collective perspective, all the changes make a difference. If you’re a regular passenger on Air Greenland, see if you notice the adjustments in lighting, mood music, and the introduction of Inuit mythology design elements. Your journey to Greenland begins already on the flight!
