Air China to cancel 2017 North Korea service following marathon

Move comes same week as new Pyongyang-Dandong Air Koryo shuttle service announced

Air China will cancel all flights to North Korea following the April 9 marathon in Pyongyang, two sources told NK News on Thursday.

The cancellation, which comes the same week that a new Air Koryo Pyongyang-Dandong shuttle service was announced, will see the only air route to North Korea serviced by a non-sanctions-designated airline be severed.
