Air China to renew Beijing-Pyongyang service on May 5

Renewal of service comes amid speculation U.S. may push for global ban on Air Koryo

Air China will resume selling flights from Beijing to Pyongyang from Friday May 5, despite sources telling NK News in late March that the airline would be suspending services for the rest of the year.

The resumption of the service, which will fly on Mondays and Fridays from May 5 until October 27, 2017, comes after the airline on April 14 denied claims – also circulated by Chinese state media – that service would be halted for the remainder of the year.
