An Air Koryo passenger flight from Pyongyang landed at Beijing Capital Airport on Tuesday morning, according to tracking app Flight Master, in what would be the first commercial flight from North Korea since the COVID-19 pandemic began, APA reports citing Reuters.

The flight, JS151, arrived at 9:17 a.m. (0117 GMT), shortly ahead of its scheduled time. It wasn't immediately clear who was on the flight.

The Chinese foreign ministry said on Monday that Beijing had approved North Korea's state carrier Air Koryo resuming flights to China more than three years after they stopped amid COVID-19 restrictions, amid signs of increased contact between North Korea and its neighbor and biggest trading partner.
