North Korean airline to head to Macau

The end of this week will see something unusual in the international aviation world, North Korean national carrier, Air Koryo will launch a new international route.

Flight International is reporting that the carrier will commence the new service on the 2nd August to Macau from its home base of Pyongyang. At this stage, it is unclear what aircraft will operate the route which is scheduled to run twice a week. However, it will most likely be flown by one of the carriers Tu 204s.

This is the first time in four years that Air Koryo has introduced an international route, it currently operates flights to Vladivostok in Russia and Beijing, Shenyang and Shanghai in China.   

The Civil Aviation Authority of Macau (AACM) confirmed Air Koryo had applied to them to operate the route on 17th July
