 Air China has revived plans to serve the North Korean capital Pyongyang.

The official Xinhua news agency says Star Alliance member Air China will launch thrice-weekly services to the North Korean capital on 31 March. Boeing 737s will be used for the flights from its Beijing base.

Air China said in November that it planned to start serving Pyongyang in January but it later delayed the start, citing operational reasons.

The state-owned carrier will be the only foreign airline serving the reclusive state of North Korea.
