North Korean has asked a Hong Kong-based firm of architects to redesign Sunan International Airport in Pyongyang, the South China Morning Post reported Monday.
PLT Planning and Architecture is also remodeling a military airport in the Wonsan-Mt. Kumgang tourism zone into a civilian airport, the daily said.
Otto Cheng Ping-lun of the firm said North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is reportedly very happy with the design of the Mt. Kumgang airport and therefore asked them to tackle the new project too, with the proviso that an airport in the capital should look even better than one in the provinces.
Cheng said he was introduced by a Hong Kong businessman with personal connections with the North Korean regime but did not go into the details of the project.
