    There are, but not from the US. Air Greenland, in addition to connecting various settlements throughout the island, also flies to Keflavik, Iceland and Copenhagen, Denmark from Nuuk, Greenland capital. Air Iceland, a regional subsidiary of Icelandair, also flies to Nuuk from Reykjavik City Airport.

    By the way, a direct flight is a flight that makes one or more stops between its origin and destination. A non-stop flight is the one that make no stops along the way.

    There are - you could fly from Iceland airport via Icelandair or from Denmark.

    There isn’t much direct flights to Greenland due to its small population and climate

      Indeed "From where?" I would be surprised to learn of direct flights to Greenland from Australia!

    No one wants to go there. The biggest of islands has an estimated population of 55,000 people. But they sure are hard to find.

    It's not commercially viable.

    However, there are flights to there on a regular basis, mostly military or private.

    Direct flights only exist to and from major airports. Greenland's largest city has only 17,984 inhabitants.
