Air China to halt flights to North Korea from Monday: report

All News 22:05 April 14, 2017

BEIJING, April 14 (Yonhap) -- China's flagship carrier Air China, the only Chinese airline with regular flights to North Korea, will temporarily halt its flights between Pyongyang and Beijing starting Monday, China's state-run media reported Friday.

China's CCTV gave no reason for the temporary suspension by Air China, but the measure came as tensions are high on the Korean Peninsula over North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.

The Chinese media said flights between Pyongyang and Beijing have often been canceled due to a lack of passengers.

North Korea's state-run Air Koryo will remain the only carrier with regular flights between Pyongyang and Beijing.
