North Korea invites Russian airlines to launch flights between the two countries to increase connectivity. Currently, only a twice-weekly service is in place between Pyongyang and Vladivostok.

Russian airlines could operate to Pyongyang.

In an attempt to increase relations between the two countries, North Korea has invited Russian airlines to set up routes to North Korea. According to a report in Russian newspaper Kommersant, officials at the Russian Federal Air Transport Agency have started discussions with Aeroflot and its subsidiary Aurora about the possibility of operating flights to the North Korean capital, Pyongyang. To date, the only air service between the two countries is a twice-weekly flight from Pyongyang to Vladivostok, operated by North Korean airline Air Koryo. These flights resumed in August 2023 following the pandemic. They are believed to be mainly used by North Korean construction workers traveling between the two countries.
