Future pilotage services in Greenland will become integrated directly into DanPilot in order to adapt to the current, challenging market conditions due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Due to the decline in activity, the cruise market will once again have to miss out on the entire peak season now that the Greenlandic authorities have announced that cruise activity will not resume until autumn 2021 at the earliest.
All handling and ordering will occur through DanPilot. Many pilots who are well-versed in Arctic sailing and have special insight and knowledge of Greenlandic waters are working for DanPilot as a pilot service provider. Additionally, DanPilot meets the requirement needed to succeed in sailing in the arctic areas, including the proper training, certificates, and experience. In previous years, Greenland Pilot Service ApS received pilots from DanPilot, so the new structure is an extension of Greenlands highly professional pilotage service.
Greenland Pilot Service ApS will become an independent entity following the integration. To stay close to authorities, customers, and other actors in the Greenland cruise market, DanPilot will keep an office in Nuuk.
