China Suspends Flights To North Korea As Tensions Mount

The state owned airline Air China will suspend flights between China and the North Korean capital Pyongyang starting on Monday.

The airline claims that it is suspending flights to North Korea based on weak consumer demands, but the timing cannot be dismissed as the United States beefs up it’s military presence around the Korean peninsula.

A rep for the airline told CNN, “We will schedule flights on this route based on passenger demand.”

North Korea has said it will conduct another nuclear test whenever they want and they are ready to ‘go to war’ if the U.S. provokes North Korea.
