Chartered Flight Services Between China, N. Korea Suspended

Chartered flight services between North Korea and China have been suspended.  
 
Air Koryo’s chartered flight services between Dandong, Liaoning and Pyongyang that could previously be booked through the North Korean state-run airliners’ website were no longer available as of Tuesday.
 
An Air Koryo official from the Beijing office confirmed that Dandong-Pyongyang flight services have been recently suspended, although the reason for the suspension was not known. 

The official said the flight services will remain suspended for the time being.
 
The Chinese authorities allowed the chartered flight services in March, drawing criticism that the service runs counter to the international community’s strengthened sanctions on the North.
 
Since the UN Security Council(UNSC) passed Resolution 2270 in March of 2016, following the North’s fourth nuclear test, only China and Russia allowed arrivals and departures of Air Koryo planes.
