Woohoo! Beginning July 1, a new flight will take you from Pudong Airport to one of the world’s most exotic (and reclusive) destinations.
North Korea’s national flag carrier, Air Koryo, has announced that it will start twice-weekly flights between Shanghai and Pyongyang.
With that, Shanghai will become the third city after Beijing and Shenyang to have regular flights to the capital of the DPRK.
This announcement comes barely a month after the “Dear Leader” Kim Jong Il’s most recent China tour.
The new flights are expected to cater to mainly tour groups full of Chinese tourists who find themselves in need of a reminder of what the People’s Republic looked like thirty years ago.
