Exterior

There isn't much going on at Samjiyon Airport. 

You will walk straight from your plane and collect your luggage from the luggage cart outside. 

The parking lot is just next to the airport runway - so you don't have far to walk.

The airport is located in the middle of forests and trees - making for a pleasant, but bumpy journey!

Interior

Samjiyon Airport is more of a small building located in the middle of no where than anything else. 

You can expect that your flight will be the only one landing or taking off. 

There may be a bit of a hassle through customs as they will have to turn all of the machinery on.

You will go through a metal detector then wait in the small waiting area. 

You can then collect your printed ticket - complete with ample spelling mistakes! 

There is no toilet inside.

Visiting Tips

  • There is no toilet inside, but there is one at the back of the building. This is extremely basic. Bring toilet roll! 

  • Be patient as you are going through the customs check. It may be slow.
