Air Koryo TU-134/154 days numbered

Air Koryo An148 (c) Mark WilliamsAir Koryo is reportedly planning to replace its ageing Tupolev TU-134 and TU-154 airliners with more modern Antonov An-148-100 and An-158 aircraft.

It is in the process of ordering two An-148s and a single An-158 to replace the older aircraft, meaning the days of flying on these historic types may soon be at an end.

Having said that, people who have been on recent aviation tours to the country have reported that the airline’s IL-18 will remain active for many years to come, and the IL-62s will also likely remain active as the type is in use as a government transport.
