China’s national carrier resumed flights between Beijing and Pyongyang today amid improved Sino-North Korea ties, a company official said Tuesday.

Starting Wednesday, Air China provides three flights per week on the route that it suspended on Nov. 21 last year. Relations soured last year as Beijing, angered by Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile tests, backed a series of United Nations’ sanctions against its ally.

The official told Yonhap News Agency that it will resume the service because of increased demand for the route.
