China’s Flag Carrier, Air China, Halts Flights To North Korea

China’s flag carrier, Air China, halted flights from Beijing to the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, from late on Friday, Chinese state broadcaster CCTV reported.
It did not say why the flights, which operate on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, were being suspended.
Air China is the only Chinese airline that provides flights to North Korea.
The last flight between the two cities took place on Friday, with the return flight to Beijing arriving in the early evening, the broadcaster said.
Air China had been operating three weekly round-trip flights between Chinese and North Korean capital cities, but service had become sporadic in recent months.
Air China began regular flights between the two countries in 2008 but the flights were frequently cancelled because of unspecified problems.
