Kangerlussuaq (English: "Big Fjord" from Kalaallisut language), (Danish: Søndre Strømfjord), is a settlement in western Greenland in the Qeqqata municipality located at the head of the fjord of the same name.  It is Greenland´s main air transport hub and the site of Greenland´s largest commercial airport.  The airport dates from American settlement during and after World War II, when the site was known as Bluie West-8 and then Sondrestrom Air Base.  The Kangerlussuaq area is also home to Greenland´s most diverse terrestrial fauna, including muskoxen, caribou, and gyrfalcons.  The settlement´s economy and population of 499 is almost entirely reliant on the airport and tourist industry.
