Greenland's tourism industry experienced significant growth in 2015. The total number of tourists that traveled to Greenland by air in the first three quarters of the year was 46,280, and the number of cruise passengers was 22,534. The number of international air travelers to Greenland in high season also increased by 52.7% (18,120 in 2015 vs. 11,865 in 2014). Similarly, there was an 11.5% increase in the number of cruise passengers between 2014 and 2015.

In addition, the many improvements to be implemented in Greenland are expected to help maintain growth in 2016.
