An Air Greenland Dash-8 lands at Iqaluit's airport right after 12 p.m. on June 15, launching the summer's regular service between Nuuk and Iqaluit, the first scheduled service between the Arctic neighbours since 2001.  The Iqaluit airport was buzzing with activity with people lining up waiting to go through customs — some going to Nuuk, with others from Nuuk heading on through to Ottawa.

The Iqaluit airport was buzzing with activity with people lining up waiting to go through customs — some going to Nuuk, with others from Nuuk heading on through to Ottawa. "This is very exciting. They stopped service for many years and we wanted to make sure that we'd be back again so we'd be able to fly back to Nuuk," said Lavinia Branca Snyder, who's going to Nuuk with her daughter because of their love for the Arctic. "We were meant to be here, we wanted to be on the first flight back." Read more about the new air service on Nunatsiaqonline.ca. (PHOTO BY DAVID MURPHY)
