Air Greenland jet

Air Greenland has announces a lockout of its pilots and cabin crew due to a collapse in the negotiations of the wage dispute. This means that all Air Greenland's flights are cancelled for the rest of the week.

This is a huge set off in the country's transportation system, where little or none on land transportation infrastructure exists, leaving many villages isolated. Greenland has population of roughly 56.000 people in a land area that is over 2 million square kilometers (about 840.000 square miles), giving it the status of one of the most sparsely populated country in the world.
