Air China Suspends Flights to DPRK

Air China Suspends Flights to DPRK”

According to Air China, that time's suspension was caused by low customer demand, and so is this time.

Today's move is followed by U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to ad Pyongyang to a list of governments that support terrorism but there was no indication that prompted Air China's decision.

21 that Air China announced it would be temporarily suspending the Beijing-Pyongyang route due to a lack of passengers.

"Market conditions will determine the resumption of the flight route", the statement said.

Song Thao, chief of the International Liaison Department of the Chinese Communist Party and Xi Jinping's special envoy to North Korea, recently returned to Beijing from Pyongyang on the evening of November 20, flying on what ended up being the route's final flight. However, China Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang also asserted that the decision was not political, adding that he hadn't even heard anything about it when asked at a Tuesday press conference in Beijing. While not reported, when the airline plans to restore regular flights from the Chinese capital to the capital of North Korea, however, the representatives of the company stated that it is likely that in the future flights in this direction will be implemented. The website said that it has flights to Beijing, Dandong, Shenyang and Shanghai in China and Vladivostok in Russian Federation.

Beijing is Pyongyang's only major ally and biggest trade partner, though in August China said it would abide by new United Nations sanctions which heavily curtail the North's exports of its most profitable goods.

China's foreign ministry rejected the sanctions on Chinese firms as "wrong", stressing that Beijing has enforced United Nations measures curbing trade with Pyongyang.
