Japan jet charter

Kim may have chosen the Chinese jumbo jet for safety and practical reasons. His own personal jet is a Soviet-era Ilyushin II, a long-range jet that was discontinued in 1995. Besides, Chinese pilots are more experienced in flying the long-distance journey of nearly 5,000km, despite the fact that Kim’s own personal jet, along with another North Korean plane, was also flown to Singapore on the same day, perhaps as a decoy.

Chinese leaders, including President Xi Jinping, do not have their own private jets and Air China, the flag carrier, usually reconfigures the commercial jets for such special uses, reverting them back to commercial mode afterwards.

Kim’s decision to borrow a jet normally reserved for Chinese leaders has thus added a symbolic twist to the unfolding drama. China was not in the room where the Singapore summit was held, but its influence continued to loom large.
