Exceptional Wonsan flights raise prospect of South Korean delegation visit

Two flights could be linked to visiting ROK officials and businesspeople

Two non-scheduled Air Koryo flights from Pyongyang to the coastal city of Wonsan on Tuesday evening have been observed on the departure board at Sunan International Airport, a picture seen by NK News showed.

Because of the same-day arrival of a major South Korean delegation led by President Moon Jae-in – and that the Pyongyang-Wonsan route typically only flies on Mondays – the added services could suggest a high-level visit there by parts or all of the Seoul delegation.
