North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has inspected the new terminal at Pyongyang International Airport, which will officially open on July 1.

Jong-un first took a bird’s eye view of the airport from his plane before entering the terminal via an air bridge and visiting the waiting lounge, check-in hall, arrivals hall, VIP rooms and shops, according to Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea. 

The new airport is part of the government’s plan to develop the city of Pyongyang, which also includes high-speed railways and a motorway from the airport to the city center.
