Air Koryo increases Macau flights, decreases other routes for winter season
Air China also decreases Beijing-Pyongyang flights from three to two times per week
This week marked the first in the winter schedule for North Korea’s national carrier Air Koryo, bringing a mostly reduced frequency of flights but also one noteworthy increase to its newest regular destination.
Having started a twice-weekly service from Pyongyang to Macau just one month ago, Air Koryo has now added a Sunday flight to the existing Tuesday/Friday schedule for that route.
