SEOUL – Flights from North Korea to the northeast Chinese city of Dalian have resumed, South Korean news agency Yonhap reported on Saturday.
An Air Koryo plane from Pyongyang landed in Dalian on Thursday and then returned to the North Korean capital, the report said citing local tourism agencies.
The flights were the first between the two cities since 2006.
The resumption of the service is being seen as a sign of improving relations, Yonhap reported.
Ties between China and North Korea had cooled due to Pyongyang’s repeated nuclear and missile tests.
Li Zhanshu, a senior Chinese official, recently attended North Korea’s 70th anniversary celebrations.
