Getting around by air

Pyongyan's Sunan International Airport is the only airport in the country open to flights from abroad. A brand new airport was opened to much fanfare in 2015, and while it now looks much like any small airport anywhere in the world, the similarities end there.

Only Air Koryo and Air China connect Pyongyang to the outside world. The national airline, Air Koryo runs a fleet of old Soviet Tupolevs and Ilyushins, as well as a few more modern Russian-made planes on international routes. Air Koryo flies regularly to Beijing, Shenyang and Vladivostok. By far the most commonly used route is the flight from Beijing, operated every day except Sunday on either Air Koryo or Air China. Air Koryo flies between Shanghai and Pyongyang every Tuesday and Friday. On Wednesday and Saturday there’s a flight between Pyongyang and Shenyang in both directions as well, and on Thursday there’s a return flight between Pyongyang and Vladivostok on Air Koryo. Pyongyang’s airport code is FNJ.

The Air Koryo building adjoins the Swissôtel in Beijing, but the entrance is around the back. You must have a visa before you can pick up your ticket, though if you’re travelling in a group your travel agency will arrange the ticket.
