Risk Alert issued for North Korea:
Germany has issued a new Conflict Zone Notam, valid through March 25, warning of the potential risk to overflights through North Korean airspace, due to the potential for launch of test missiles without prior notice. As a result, the Safe Airspace warning level for North Korea is now Level 2. The Notam comes as North Korea said it is planning a “Christmas gift” to the US, and the USAF believes this could be a long-range ballistic missile test. North Korea regularly launches short-range test missiles into the Sea of Japan, but halted its long-range tests after diplomatic talks with the US in early 2018. The US prohibits flights across all North Korean airspace, including the oceanic part of the ZKKP/Pyongyang FIR over the Sea of Japan.
