Dave, I guess you've seen the flight logistics have changed for this, and future, seasons? Seems to mean more limited places and different routing.
I haven't been, but had looked into it (for GBF & EMF) and been in contact with PaulW over the years.
Thanks for the heads up on this Damo but I was aware. Looks like 2 years of finding a scheduled alternative to flying direct from Iceland to East Greenland. There is a charter flight but no guarantee that it will not be cancelled if client numbers don't justify the flight. Looks like Air Greenland from Copenhagen via Kangerlussuaq is the cheapest scheduled option from the UK as flights to Copenhagen with easyjet are a lot cheaper than flights to Iceland.
Why did you end up not going after your earlier investigations?
We were there last summer doing geology fieldwork. We flew to Iceland and then to Constable Point. We were based out of the airbase there although we camped most of the time. We used Polog for logistics and they were very good. Not sure if that helps.
Amazing place, have fun
Thanks to everyone who came back to me on this both here and by email.
Anyone who wants any info as a result is welcome to get in touch.
Easyjet now fly to Reykjavik from Luton, Manchester and Edinburgh.
