Chinese airline to resume flights to North Korea

State-owned Air China will resume flights to North Korea's capital on Wednesday, an airline employee said, amid preparations for a possible meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, The News Observer reported on Tuesday.

Air China's decision in November to suspend flights to Pyongyang, blaming lack of demand, deepened the North's isolation as U.N. sanctions aimed at ending its nuclear and missile programs were tightened.

"The flights from Beijing to Pyongyang will be resumed due to market reasons," said the employee of the airline's press office, who would give only his surname, Zhang. He gave no other details.

The Air China website showed flights available on Wednesday, Friday and the following Monday.
