Last month, the North Korean capital of Pyongyang opened the doors to the country’s newest airport terminal: Pyongyang Sunan International Airport.
The new international terminal will replaced the airport’s old terminal facility, which dates back to the early days of the Cold War. So far, details surrounding the facility, called “Terminal 2,” are few. However, North Korea’s state-owned media agency released a series of photos of the new facility.
The terminal features at least 3 jet bridges and the ability to park at least a dozen more planes on the tarmac.
The airport primarily serves flights in and out of China, Russia, and a few other destinations in Asia.
Kim Jong-Un returned to the terminal with his wife and a cadre of supporters after the building was completed.

The completion of the new airport is said to be part of the celebration to commemorate the anniversary of the founding of North Korea's ruling political party in October.
