      The official [North] Korean Central News Agency said Kim toured the new terminal of Sunan International Airport, which opens on July 1. Work on the terminal for the airport, the main gateway to Pyongyang, started in 2012.

      It contains duty free shops, restaurants and underground parking lots. Kim also ordered a highway and high-speed rail linking the new terminal with Pyongyang.

      Whether it will ever earn its keep is unclear since North Korea's Koryo Airlines only flies to a handful of foreign destinations.
