Incident at Narsarsuaq (Conflict - potential)

DCFAX LJ35 was enroute Narsarsuaq (BGBW) to Keflavik (BIKF) and GRL786 B757-200 was enroute Narsarsuaq to Kobenhavn (EKCH). Both aircraft received ATC clearance with restrictions to enter controlled airspace vertically separated in accordance with the normal operating practices. Due to a change in the order of departure both clearances were amended to provide service based on 'first come first served' practices. Apparent delays in the delivery of the amended clearances within the BGSF FIC compromise safety. No loss of separation occurred. Final clarification on the situation depends on information from Denmark Investigation Authorities. Nil TSB
