Sky Greenland (Aalborg), previously known as Greenland Express (Aalborg), has acquired Netherlands-based ACMI/charter specialist Denim Air ACMI (G6, Amsterdam Schiphol) for an undisclosed sum. The agreement was signed on January 18 and is currently awaiting approval by the relevant Dutch authorities, the parties said in a statement.

Denim Air ACMI's inventory consists of fifty staff and one E145, two Fokker 100s, and one Fokker 50.

For its part, Sky Greenland is readying itself for a return to service later this year using a fleet of five SSJ 100/95s to connect mainland Europe with North America using Greenland as a transit hub. It is recalled that Denim Air was Greenland Express's launch partner during its maiden foray into the scheduled passenger market between 2013 and 2014.

Having been a virtual carrier in the past, it is believed the Greenlandic airline will use Denim Air's existing AOC to transform itself into a fully-fledged scheduled operator.
