China suspends flights to North Korea

China will suspend all Air China flights from Beijing to North Korea

Air China will suspend flights between Beijing and the North Korean capital of Pyongyang starting on Monday in another sign of escalating tensions on the Korean Peninsula, as reported by New York Post.

The state-owned airline claimed the move was a reaction to weak sales, not because of the isolated regime’s increasingly aggressive behavior.

“We will schedule flights on this route based on passenger demand,” a representative for the carrier said.

This tension comes as the North Korean dictator Kim-Jong Un has threatened to stage another nuke or missile test despite US threats to retaliate — possibly even with a military strike.
