Liputan6.com, Jakarta – During this time, various things related to North Korea impressed very closed. Of course that is very different from their neighboring country, South Korea which is very open.
The country led by Kim Jong Un has imposed various restrictions on its citizens and is closed to foreign countries. Even so, North Korea does not escape being a tourist destination. Many foreign tourists want to know how life is like in this communist country.
To get there, North Korea can only be reached by one airline, namely Air Koryo. Air Koryo is a North Korean airline that only opens flight routes to China and Russia. Their only international flight routes to Beijing and Vladivostok (Russia).
This airline serves less than 10 regular flights every day, both domestic and international. Reporting from the page of Business Insider, Air Koryo is a state-owned company or BUMN that was founded in the era of Kim Jong Il’s leadership or the father of Kim Jong Un.
Air Koryo, which was founded in 1955 at that time, became an airline from North Korea that was well regarded by the outside world. However, at this time, conditions were much different.
Air Koryo has been named the world’s worst by aviation site Skytrax for the last five consecutive years. They are the only airline in the world that gets a 1 star rating. The parameter that makes Air Koryo the worst airline is the facilities provided to passengers during the flight.
They gave newspapers full of North Korean propaganda news and repetitive state music. Not only that, Air Koryo also only displays the video clip of Kim Jong Un’s favorite ‘girl group’, namely Moranbong.
The food service at Air Koryo is also considered mediocre, some even think it is almost inedible. For economy class flights, passengers will be served “The Mystery Burger”, this mysterious burger is quite popular among travelers.
Not because of its deliciousness, but because the taste and contents of the burger are unclear and less edible. In fact, the aspect of food is one of the most important on a flight.
