We recommend that our passengers send deep-frozen goods as air cargo in order to prevent the consignment from being damaged en route.
As an exception, deep-frozen foodstuffs can be accepted in the hold in accordance with the following guidelines if the total journey time does not exceed eight hours:
- Transport takes place at your own risk and in a separate bag labeled ‘deep-frozen foodstuffs’.
- Foodstuffs must be packaged in plastic or other waterproof material in the separate bag.
- Make an arrangement with the personnel at check-in that the frozen goods can be kept in a freezer until shortly before departure.
- If possible, the goods should be stowed in an unheated hold.
Passengers that wish to transport meat between Denmark and Greenland must obtain information concerning current rules and regulations from:
Ministry of Fishing, Hunting and Agriculture

Air Greenland cannot be held liable if passengers contravene applicable rules.
