Die BBC hat einen Artikel über die Sicherheit von Reisen nach Nordkorea veröffentlicht. Unter den interviewten Reiseveranstaltern ist auch Pyongyang Travel vertreten: Will people still travel to North Korea?

„Andre Wittig of Berlin-based Pyongyang Travel agrees that North Korea remains a country that’s safe to visit. „There’s not been a single time that we’ve had a situation that was even close to difficult,“ he told the BBC. While stressing that the death of Mr Warmbier is a terrible tragedy that must not be repeated, he does not feel it will discourage increasing numbers of tourists from going there. (…) „Where we do in fact see a difference in bookings is whenever there are growing tensions between the US and North Korea – this is obviously something that has people worried,“ Mr Wittig explains. „Since the Trump administration in Washington has upped the rhetoric to include a possible military strike, people are naturally more hesitant and concerned about booking a trip to North Korea.““
