Flights to Pyongyang

By admin ~ November 13th, 2009. Filed under: Travel.

Nearly all visitors arrive either by plane or train.

Sunan International Airport (IATA: FNJ) is 24 km north of Pyongyang and, as of 2009, has scheduled services only to Beijing. There is a (supposedly) weekly flight to Vladivostok, but in fact it’s hardly more than a glorified charter, as it goes only if there’s enough passengers to fill the elderly Tu-134.

The Air China Beijing flights depart/arrive on Monday and Friday afternoons, with an additional service on Wednesday afternoons in summer (from April 1st). Note that Pyongyang airport does not have ILS, so if the weather is bad, flights are sometimes cancelled, or even turned back.
