Air Koryo, North Korea's flagship airline, is headquartered in Pyongyang. The airline operates international scheduled and charter services to limited points in Asia and Europe.

As a joint Soviet-North Korean concern, Air Koryo was founded first under the name Sokao in 1950 to connect North Korea with Moscow. During the Korean War (1950-1953), services were suspended, but later resumed in 1953. The current airline was established in 1954, and began operations in September 1955.

Air Koryo currently employs social-networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter in an effort to further its propaganda war against South Korea and the United States.
