Syria proposes airline allotment agreement with North Korea

Syria claims that a proposed agreement between its state airline and North Korea’s will bring numerous economic benefits

Damascus proposed a proportional allotment agreement between North Korean state airline Air Koryo and Syrian Air during a Syrian-DPRK Joint Economic Committee meeting in June.

The arrangement will allow for the block booking of an allotment of seats or space on either airline, which can be reserved for the regular transfer of individuals or cargo. Syria’s Ministry of Aviation have already signed the agreement and is awaiting an official response from North Korea.
