South Korea Changes Commercial Flight Paths Ahead of North Korean Rocket Launch

Expecting debris from their neighbor's rocket launch later this month


SOUTH Korea plans to reroute passenger flights over the Yellow Sea, to avoid possible collisions with debris from a long-range rocket that North Korea plans to launch.

The Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs on Monday said it made the decision after learning that North Korea had informed China and Singapore of the flight path and other details.
