Voice of Travelers to Greenland

Vacation to Greenland

On the first day of my vacation, I reserved a ticket online with Air France and printed this ticket on my home printer. Air France offers multiple methods of ticket reservation: it has an online ticket reservation service, ticket reservation via a smartphone app, ticket reservation by phone call, and ticket reservation at the Air France office itself. When I came to the airport, I showed my ticket at their kiosk stationed at the airport. The plane in which I flew to Greenland was an Airbus A320, an extremely comfortable and modern plane. My ticket was for an Economy flight class. I was very satisfied with the flight crew and with the plane entertainment system. Because I regularly purchase air tickets from Air France, I am member of their mileage program which is intended for frequent ticket buyers. The flight was very comfortable. Also I would like to mention that I bought a return ticket with a 30% lower price than the regular air ticket price.

Happy frequent flyer

I have been flying with Air Greenland for the most of my life, and I have been all over Greenland. As with all modern air carriers, they offer multiple ways of booking an air ticket. These ways of booking tickets are: an online ticket booking service, ticket booking by phone, ticket booking in an office, and ticket booking by email. I booked my ticket to Ilulissat by email. My ticket was very cheap because of rising competition among air carriers who are offering cheaper and cheaper tickets. I checked my ticket at the airport counter and boarded an Airbus A330. As with all planes of Air Greenland, this plane was clean, fresh, and comfortable. The flight crew was helpful and warm as always. The flight was quiet and relaxing. Also I must mention that as a frequent ticket buyer of Air Greenland, I was given a complimentary meal from Air Greenland.
